dc.descriptionView of the elevation along High Street (west elevation of the front quad), view of the southwest corner; Almost as plain, but on a larger scale, is All Souls College, built in 1438-1443. It was founded by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Henry Chichele (reigned 1414-1443), to be a memorial to the fallen at Agincourt and, like his south-west porch at Canterbury Cathedral, to glorify the Lancastrian dynasty. The young King Henry VI may have influenced the relative overall simplicity. Nicholas Hawksmoor is responsible for the north quadrangle of All Souls (1716-1735).
