HISTORY: The site for Glasney College was chosen as a result
of vivid dreams by Bishop Bronescombe while he was ill and
delirious at Canterbury. In these dreams he saw "Thomas Becket
who foretold his recovery, and told him on his return west, to
found in the woods of Glasney in the episcopal manor of Penryn
a collegiate church to the glory of God and in the name of St
Thomas the Martyr ...".
