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.

Following on from my post last week Persian Prince at the Oxford Union about the speech, followed by a question and answer session given by the Crown Prince of Iran at the Oxford Union there is an interview with him in the Oxford student newspaper Cherwell. It can be accessed at Interview: Prince Reza Pahlavi.
