Revd Dr Rob Wainwright

BA, MA, MSt, DPhil

I teach Early Modern Christianity, the history and theology of the Church from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries.

My research interests focus on the English Reformation. Before coming to Oriel I read History at St John’s College, Durham, and Christ Church, and Theology at Wycliffe Hall.

As Chaplain of Oriel I pray for the College and support the wellbeing of all its members. I am particularly responsible for the spiritual life of the community. I am always happy to listen and talk about any matter in complete confidence.

As Tutor for Admissions and Outreach I am responsible for undergraduate admissions and the College’s access and outreach programmes.
