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.

Fr Hunwicke on Apostolicae Curae

Fr Hunwicke has started a series of posts on Apostolicae Curae which promises to be of more than passing interest. You can find them on Fr Hunwicke's Liturgical Notes. He gives a warning against commenting before he has completed the series, so read on, and reflect.
