By 1823, Frederick Denison Maurice was expressing a desire to study at Cambridge. It was a mark of the gulf opening up between Maurice and his father, for whom the Anglican dominance of Cambridge had made attendance impossible. Nevertheless, Cambridge could at least permit in theory greater latitude of belief than could Oxford, where subscription was required on matriculation — that is, before study even began. By this time, Maurice had already begun to read widely in English literature, including the work of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. At Cambridge, where Maurice began to study as a student of Trinity College in October 1823, Coleridge’s influence amongst the circle of undergraduates with whom Maurice was to become friendly was paramount. The shift in Maurice’s views towards Coleridge was to represent the first of two important stages in his theological evolution. The second was his decision to embrace the Church of England.
