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.

Counsel's Opinion


The Last Knight is a barrister with a blog, The Noise of the Crusade, and he has given his online opinion on the case of Hall and Preddy v. Bull and Bull, which has attracted a lot of attention over the right or otherwise of Mr and Mrs Bull to refuse, on Christian grounds, to provide a room for a homosexual couple in their guest house. You can read the Last Knight's interpretation When is a marriage not a marriage? by following the link.

  1. When is a marriage not a marriage? When is private property not private property?!
