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.

The debate on the Reform of the Reform

I recently posted Reform of the Reform or Reversal of the Reform? about part of the current discussion about the way the Roman liturgy might or should develop.

This is, inevitably, very much a continuing debate and here are three recent contributions to it from the New Liturgical Movement site, which give a variety of viewpoints and possible lines of approach.
