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.

Colouring in at St Albans


Prof Madeleine Grey alerted the Medieval Religion discussion group to this recent installation at St Albans cathedral. As she points out it is not exactly medieval, but it appears to me that it does accord with the intentions of the medieval builders.

The report is from the BBC News website and can be viewed here.
