Milton's Christ's College in Cambridge University

Milton was a student at Christ's College in the University of Cambridge. Christ's and its neighbor Emmanuel College (the college of John Harvard - and Hugh Richmond, much later!) were regarded as centers of Puritan ideology, indeed the whole of Cambridge supported the Puritan Commonwealth, unlike Oxford which was the center of Royalist resistance to Parliamentary forces (with which, ironically, the family of Milton's first wife was associated).
