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.

Taxonomy of Trids


A friend has sent me the link to this post, Taxonomy of Trids, saying he recognises himself as a 1965 Trid. Reading it I certainly recognise the types, and, apart from being unable to sing myself, see myself and others I know in the Angl-Catholic convert group. Read it for yourselves and see how you or your friends match up to the descriptions.
