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.

Cardinal Pole exhibition at Lambeth Palace

The always informative Supremacy and Survival blog from Stephanie A. Mann has information about a forthcoming exhibition at Lambeth Palace about Cardinal Reginald Pole. This promises to be very interesting and it is open - and is free - from October 5th to December 15th.

By coincidence I have been reading more about the reign of Queen Mary I recently which further piques my interest. 

The note from Supremacy and Survival can be seen at Reginald Cardinal Pole Exhibition at Lambeth Palace

The Lambeth Palace website introduces “Reformation Cardinal: Reginald Pole in Sixteenth-Century Italy and England” on their website with details of opening times at Exhibitions
