  • King's College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England. Formally The King's College of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas in Cambridge, the college lies beside the River Cam and faces out onto King's Parade in the centre of the city. King's was founded in 1441 by Henry VI, soon after he had founded its sister college in Eton. However, the King's plans for the college were disrupted by the Wars of the Roses and resultant scarcity of funds, and his eventual deposition. Little progress was made on the project until in 1508 Henry VII began to take an interest in the college, most likely as a political move to legitimise his new position. The building of the college's chapel, begun in 1446, was finally finished in 1544 during the reign of Henry VIII. King's College Chapel is regarded as one of the greatest examples of late Gothic English architecture. It has the world's largest fan-vault, and the chapel's stained-glass windows and wooden chancel screen are considered some of the finest from their era. The building is seen as emblematic of Cambridge. The chapel's choir, composed of male students at King's and choristers from the nearby King's College School, is one of the most accomplished and renowned in the world. Every year on Christmas Eve the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols (a service devised specifically for King's by college dean Eric Milner-White) is broadcast from the chapel to millions of listeners worldwide.

Les locaux devaient accueillir à l'origine un prévôt et 70 étudiants. Le collège était réservé aux élèves de la public school d'Eton College, un privilège qui se maintint jusqu'en 1865. Sa chapelle est l'un des plus beaux exemples de l'architecture gothique britannique. (fr)

  • Kings College é uma faculdade constituinte da Universidade de Cambridge, em Cambridge, Inglaterra, Reino Unido. Formalmente chamada The King's College of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas in Cambridge, a faculdade fica no rio Cam em frente a King's Parade, no centro da cidade. A instituição foi fundada em 1441 por Henrique VI, logo depois de ele fundar a faculdade de Eton. No entanto, os planos do rei para a faculdade foram interrompidos pela Guerra das Rosas e pela escassez de fundos resultante do conflito e por seu eventual deposição. Pouco progresso foi feito no projeto até que, em 1508, Henrique VII começou a ter interesse pela faculdade, muito provavelmente como um movimento político para legitimar a sua nova posição. A construção da capela do colégio, iniciada em 1446, foi finalmente concluída em 1544, durante o reinado de Henrique VIII. A King's College Chapel é considerada um dos maiores exemplos da arquitetura gótica inglesa. Ele tem a maior abóbada em leque do mundo e os vitrais e a tela de madeira da capela são considerados alguns dos melhores de sua época. O edifício é visto como emblemático de Cambridge. O coro da capela, composto por estudantes do sexo masculino do King's e coristas da vizinha King's College School, é um dos mais talentosos e renomados no mundo. Todos os anos, na véspera de Natal, o Festival Nine Lessons and Carols (um serviço concebido especificamente para o King's College pelo reitor Eric Milner-White) é transmitido a partir da capela para milhões de ouvintes em todo o mundo.

dbp:notes
  • King's was granted its arms on the same day as its sister foundation Eton College. The two shields are identical, save that King's has three white roses, and Eton three white lilies. A version of the arms with the roses argent, barbed and seeded proper is often used, though the blazon simply describes the roses as argent. The embellished shield can be seen in the box at the top-right of this page.

dbp:previousVersions
  • Before the granting of the current arms, King's used a very similar design. The previous shield had two white lilies instead of the outer roses, and a pastoral staff encircled by a mitre instead of the bottom rose. The two lilies represented St Mary, and the bishop's regalia represented St Nicholas.

dbp:symbolism
  • In the grant of arms, the black field is described as symbolising the stability of the college; the roses are described as symbolising the bringing forth of the flowers of knowledge; and the fleur-de-lis and lion represent the royalty of King's foundation by Henry VI, referring to the Kingdoms of France and England respectively. Furthermore, white roses are traditionally a symbol of the Virgin Mary, one of the patron saints of King's.
