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.

More on the Chair of St Peter

The New Liturgical Movement has two articles on this subject, about which I wrote yesterday.

One, The Feast of Saint Peter's Chair, is by Br. Lawrence Lew OP and includes the Pope's reflections on the feast.

The second, Decorations of the Vatican Basilica on the Feast of St. Peter's Chair, has pictures and information about the relic preserved as the cathedra Petri, and the basilica's customary observances for the day.
