Henry Aldrich (1648 – 1710)
Henry Aldrich, Dean of Christ Church from 1689 to his death in 1710 and Vice Chancellor of the University of Oxford between 1692 and 1695 was a true polymath: theologian, politician, scholar, collector, musician, designer and architect. This concentration of interests and activities, combined with a powerful post which enabled Aldrich to promote and utilise them, made him ‘one of the most eminent men in England’ in the late 17th century. The Oxford Almanck, All Saints Church, Peckwater Quadrangle, books on mathematics, logic and architecture, hymns and catches owe their existence to Aldrich.
