University Church of St. Mary the Virgin

The centre of spiritual life for the University of Oxford for centuries, the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin is the sort of place where you can walk in and feel both at peace with oneself and in communion with the history that has taken place there.  It is a remarkable space.  The tower affords some of the best views of Oxford.  (I have not yet gone up the tower, but I will on a clear day, after which I will update this post and the attached gallery.)
