Wainwright
BA, MA, MSt, DPhil

I am Fellow, Chaplain and Tutor for Admissions and Outreach. I am also a member of the Theology Faculty.

As Chaplain I oversee Chapel life and I am a member of the Welfare Team. I am here for every member of the Oriel community, and am always happy to meet to listen and to discuss any matter of concern. I am in College most days and can be reached by phone (2)76580, by email, or by a knock on the door (room 3.3).

I am responsible for undergraduate admissions to Oriel and the College's outreach programme.

I tutor undergraduates Early Modern Christianity and supervise graduate work in sixteenth and seventeenth century Ecclesiastical History. My own research interest concerns the English and Swiss Reformations.

Before coming to Oriel I read History at St John's College, Durham, and did my graduate work at Christ Church. I read Theology at Wycliffe Hall and was ordained in 2015, serving my title in the Cotswolds.
