History

The best-known of Keble's Victorian founders was Edward Pusey, after whom parts of the college are named. The college itself is named after John Keble, one of Pusey's colleagues in the Oxford Movement[?], who died four years before its foundation in 1870. William Butterfield was appointed architect, and produced a masterpiece of Victorian Gothic[?], now sadly outmoded.

Keble houses the original of Holman Hunt's painting, The Light of the World (the one in St. Paul's Cathedral, London, is a copy).
