Emmanuel College, Cambridge

So what links Harvard and Cambridge university? Answer John Harvard and Emmanuel College, Cambridge,England

John Harvard was educated at Emmanuel College Cambridge and then emigrated to America, where he lived for the rest of his life. On his death he bequeathed monies which enabled the setting up of Harvard university.

So for Inspired Sunday this week I am sharing from our trip to Cambridge

  1. Hi Cathy,

    I work for one of the churches in Cambridge and wondered if you would be happy for us to use your photos of the Emmanuel stained glass in our educational materials.

    I’m just writing a section about Cambridge Puritans and the pics would be a big help!

    My email address is heritage@gsm.cam.ac.uk if you want to let me know whether that would be ok – if you let me know your full name I can credit you as the photographer too!

    Many thanks,


  2. Gorgeous windows!
