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.

Another blog discovered

Through the Society of St Tarcisius blog I found the blog When the Patriarch was returning, which I have added to the blogroll. It is the work of Richard Hawker, based at present in Kingston upon Hull, and worth looking at. You will have to look at his first post to find out the origin and significance of the blog title.
