Background on Trinity in Japan
Trinity College, Cambridge
Trinity College, Cambridge, was founded by King Henry VIII in 1546 by combining the two older colleges King’s Hall and Michael House and seven Hostels (Catherine’s, Garratt, Gregory’s, Ovyng’s, Physwick, St Margaret’s, and Tyler’s). “The King’s Hall” was founded as a society of King’s Scholars on 7 July 1317.
Sir Isaac Newton worked at Trinity College and 34 Nobel Prize winners and 4 Field’s Medal winners are or were members of Trinity College, and many others who through ideas, inventions, and creations have enormous global impact to change our world for the better.
Trinity College is part of the University of Cambridge. Trinity College is the largest College constituting Cambridge University.
