Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding.

I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop...
It was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

Easter Liturgy photographs


A friend has forwarded to me these splendid photographs of the pre-1955 Easter Liturgy as celebrated pontifically this year at St Gertrude the Great, West Chester, Ohio.
They are a very fine set, covering the whole Triduum, and repay looking at.
