Merton College Library, situated in Mob Quadrangle, dates from 1373 and is the oldest continuously functioning library for university academics and students in the world. The chapel dates from the late thirteenth century and retains much of its original stained glass. It was refurbished by Sir Christopher Wren in 1671 when he provided a new screen and stalls.  Further changes to the interior were made in the nineteenth century.
