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.

Colloquium on Garrigou-Lagrange

I have just booked for a day colloquium on November 27th hosted at Oxford Blackfriars on the great twentieth century Thomist theologian Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange O.P., and thought others might be interested in knowing about it. I understand places are still available.

There are some details here. The fee is £10 (£5 for students) and includes lunch. The colloquium starts at 10 and ends at 5.

The day promises to bring together many of the leading English-speaking commentators on Pere Reginald.

There is an article about Garrigou-Lagrange by one of the speakers at the colloquium, Fr Thomas Crean O.P., here.
