The Beginnings of the University. Surrounded by a band of poor scholars, Theobaldus Stampenis, a priest of Caen, arrived in the city of Oxford in 1110. His philosophy of life was new to the young generation of the day, and they gathered around him in numbers to listen with enthusiasm to his doctrines. He was the first notable scholar to settle in a town afterwards destined to be the home of so many famous minds, and within a few years he had under him 60 to 100 clerks, the beginnings of the University of Oxford.
