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.

Pestilence to leave Four Horsemen of Apocalypse to concentrate on solo career


Those with a darker sense of humour may appreciate this little offering which was shared with me by a friend who is an academic - the language captures well the genre of its inspiration in the contemporary media: pestilence-to-leave-four-horsemen-of-apocalypse-to-concentrate-on-solo-career
