Aletheia University is a private university in Tamsui, New Taipei City and Madou, Tainan in Taiwan. It was founded by George Leslie Mackay as Oxford College. It has close links to the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, and is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Taiwan.HistoryDr. George Leslie Mackay, a missionary from the Presbyterian Church in Canada), worked in evangelism, education, publishing and medicine after arriving in Tamsui in 1872. Soon after arriving Mackay chose a piece of land on a hilltop in the Pao-tai-pu area of Tamsui, planned the design of the main building and personally supervised its construction. When the building, funded in large part by contributions from the residents of Oxford County in Ontario, Canada, was completed in 1882, he named the school Oxford College as a gesture of thanks to its benefactors. The original Chinese name of the school meant “The Hall of Reason of the University.” The original curriculum included courses in theology,

  • 長老教會宣教師馬偕登陸淡水,選定現址興建校舍以作傳教、教育及醫療之用。1882年校舍建成後,他為感謝其家鄉Oxford County居民的捐助,遂將之命名為Oxford College,亦稱牛津學堂。
  • After you go through the door at the Red Mau is connected on the way to the right as a good stop. I've been photographing the landscape a lot better buy points
