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.

Know the enemy


I have been alerted by a friend to the existence of a "Protest the Pope - In their own words" video:

It is a useful reminder of who the Pope's, and our, opponents are.

It is also featured on Fr Blake's blog from St Mary Magdalen, Brighton
