Once a member of Brasenose, always a member of Brasenose!
Originally established as ‘The King's Hall and College of Brasenose’ for the study of sophistry, logic, philosophy and, above all, theology. The founders of Brasenose College were Sir Richard Sutton, a lawyer, and William Smyth, Bishop of Lincoln. The name of the College has always fascinated visitors to Oxford. There have been several interpretations of it, including the suggestion that it is derived from ‘brasen huis' (brewhouse). The most likely explanation is that it refers to a ‘brazen' (brass or bronze) door knocker in the shape of a nose.
