Our Common Table

In the twelth century, students at Oxford gathered around a Master to grow in knowledge and wisdom. Their nourishment in mind, body and spirit derived from the library, refectory and chapel they shared, and around which their daily lives revolved.  Out of these communities eventually grew the University. 

Nine hundred years later, St Benet's Hall is an echo, perhaps the closest there is, of that way of life.  We have only one table in our refectory, for nothing brings people together like the sharing of food, conversation and ideas. Around it sit the undergraduates, graduates, Fellows, lecturers, Master and guests.  Today, in the twenty-first century as in the twelth, all are united in the search for knowledge and truth.
