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 assault on Tradition within the Church

My redoubtable friend Fr Hunwicke has a typically telling and forceful post on his blog about the assault on Tradition in the Church and the disjunction in its life and numbers with what was imagined would happen some sixty or so years ago.

His post, together with the equally insightful comments from some of his readers, is well worth reading and reflecting upon and can be seen at SMASH TRADITION
