The Universities Tests Act of 16th June 1871 finally removed the remaining religious restrictions on study or employment at Oxford. It thus started us on a bumpy road to becoming a modern global university, with students and staff of diverse faiths, sexualities, genders, ethnicities, nationalities and races.

John Bowers will chair this event celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Act. He will be joined by Professor Abigail Green, Professor of Modern European History and Tutorial Fellow at Brasenose College, Revd Professor William Whyte, Professor of Social and Architectural History and Tutorial Fellow at St John's College, and Dr Frederick Smith, Early Career Fellow in Early Modern History, Balliol College.
