Wrong dates given - apologies:



The incorrect date for the final Oxford seminar was given in the last email on this subject. The seminar on Early Modern Alchemy will take place on Wednesday 8 June 2016 not 7 July with papers by Hilde Norrgren (Oslo) on ‘The offices of numbers: Quantification of alchemy in John Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica (1564)’ and Sietske Fransen (Cambridge) on ‘The Vocabulary of J.B. van Helmont's Recipes’.

My apologies for any confusion. The correct programme is given below.

Best wishes,

Anna
