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.

Pictures from Wisques

The blog Rorate Caeli has a new post with some photographs of the ceremonies at the recent transfer of the monastery at Wisques on the Pays-de-Calais to the Fontgombault allegiance, and about which I posted a few days ago. The abbey is now formally established, with episcopal approval, as one that follows Traditional liturgical practices. The post can be viewed at Images of Wisques transition.
