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.

Chesterton Open Day pictures

I recently advertised last Saturday's Chesterton Library Open Day at the Oxford Oratory. Today the Oratory website has pictures of the day and associated activities at Photos from the Chesterton Open Day, which may whet the appetite of readers for future such openings.
