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.

Blogging difficulties


I am experiencing some difficulties blogging at the present time - the system I usually use is not supporting Blogger, so there may be some delay in getting up posts. However, when I have finished tearing out my hair and weeping and wailing over the machine, not to mention cursing, normal posting will be resumed as quickly as possible - I have not gone away!

  1. Me too...isn't it a pain? But I'm sure your posts will be worth waiting for, as always!
