At the meeting in the institute for the study of the history of philosophy and science I had the opportunity to meet and talk to some of the new younger scholars Guido Paganini, Guido Canziani and Anna Maria Baldi, were working on topics related to my own interests. These interactions always helped me focus and develop my ideas, and learn what others were doing. From Milan I went to a wonderful conference at Cortona on the first reception of Spinoza's ideas.

We had to do this quickly because a large conference was going to be held at the University of Sheffield to celebrate the launching of the computerized Hartlib papers on C D - R O M disks that any library could obtain. I was one of the featured speakers, and gave a talk on Hartlib, Dury and the Jews, dealing with their philo-semitic millenarian activities, putting together materials I had gathered from the Hartlib papers earlier, from the Dury archives in Zurich, papers in the British Museum, plus others in Stockholm, Kassel and elsewhere.
