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 of Pity in the Galilee at Durham

The Pilgrimage has now moved to the north-east and reassembles in the wonderful late twelfth century Galilee Chapel at the west end of the cathedral in Durham.

My original post about this devotion can be accessed in a post from the following year, together with the link to a recent thesis on devotional images in the later middle ages in Yok Minster and Durham Cathedral, at Our Lady of Pity in the Galilee at Durham

May Our Lady of Pity pray for The King and all the Royal Family and for us all
