The Visitor Catalogue

Visitor papers

Amongst some of the latest material to be catalogued in the archives is the Visitor collection. The Visitor of Brasenose has since the very beginnings of the College been the Bishop of Lincoln. He acted as an outside arbitrator who made judgements and decisions when it came to quarrels and disagreements within the College. Today the position is very much honorary but the archive retains a great collection of correspondence and papers relating to cases brought before the Bishop between 1609 and 1936.
