Trinity College

Trinity College was created by royal charter in 1592 on the site of the former Priory of All Hallows. Universities were being established across western Europe in the belief their graduates, mostly clergy, would become civil administrators. Trinity survived the 60-year war of attrition between British governments and the Catholic hierarchy over higher education policy and in 1873 all religious testing excluding those administered in the Divinity School were abolished. The College became a non-denominational institution.
