Template:Oxford College Infobox </div> Lincoln College (in full: The College of the Blessed Mary and All Saints, Lincoln) is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. It is situated in the very centre of Oxford, lying on Turl Street next to Exeter and behind Brasenose.

History

The College has a proud history dating back to its foundation 1427 by Richard Fleming, then-Bishop of Lincoln, (cadaver tomb in Lincoln Cathedral) to combat the Lollard 'heresy' of John Wyclif. He intended it to be 'a little college of true students of theology who would defend the mysteries of Scripture against those ignorant laymen who profaned with swinish snouts its most holy pearls'.

In the 18th century Lincoln became the cradle of Methodism when John Wesley, at that time a fellow there, held religious meetings with his brother Charles.

Later it was the first college to admit a Jewish fellow, the philosopher Samuel Alexander (appointed 1882).

In more recent times, the College has proved itself remarkably adaptable and forward-thinking. The first college in Oxford or Cambridge to provide a Middle Common Room exclusively for the use of graduate students, Lincoln has admitted women since the 1970s. It consistently does well in the Norrington Table and its students take part in a wide range of university-wide clubs and societies.

Architecture

The college is home to a chapel in late perpendicular architecture. The chapel was built between 1629 and 1631. The college's library is located in the converted 18th century church of All Saints.

Junior Common Room

Due to Lincoln's small numbers and tightly-knit community, its Junior Common Room (JCR) plays a greater role in student life than do the JCRs of most other colleges. JCR elections, held annually in Trinity Term, attract one of the highest turnouts of any Oxford college.

The JCR is run by an Exec of nine officers, headed by the President. The JCR President for 2005-6 is Oliver Munn. His predecessors include Alasdair Henderson (2004-5), Mairi Brewis (2003-4) and Phil Bownes (2002-3). JCR meetings are held twice a term.
