I thought the well educated person moved toward being an expert by study
and specialisation, Knowing more and more but about less, until finally
knowing everything about nothing. 


Many years ago, when I was with the National Trust in the UK, one of our
countryside wardens came up with a superb definition for an expert: "A
silly bugger from a long way off!"

The Church and conservation bodies are slowly constricting opportunities
for enhancing churches with things of our own times - this "stop the
clock" / "keep everything old irrespective of quality and usefulness"
fashion must be checked.

Hear, hear to that sentiment!
