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.

Rite of Braga

The New Liturgical Movement has a post about a site - Alma Bracarense - dedicated to the study of the Portuguese Rite of Braga, and based around studies of the 1924 Editio Typica sanctioned by Pope Pius XI of this ancient Rite.

The website is at http://almabracarense.wordpress.com.and I have added it to the side bar.
