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.

Marian Pilgrimage - Our Lady at the Pillar St Edmundsbury

Today the Pilgrimage - why is not clear to me but presumably was to the late Canon Stephenson when he compiled the itinerary - makes a return visit to Suffolk to Bury St Edmunds / St Edmundsbury to a devotional image that was not in the abbey but in the larger of the two parish churches built into the precinct wall, that of St Mary.

My post about it can be seen at Our Lady at the Pillar St Edmundsbury

Our Lady at the Pillar at St Edmundsbury Pray for us
