For the IPCS ... did the IPCS organ ever note something about this Forum? Can somebody quote there something? In 13 years of the existence? Or about the Aeclectic site, which was older? Hm .... http://forum.tarothistory.com/search.php?keywords=ipcs The IPCS discussion forum has been up since 2012, ...

Re: Jewish-Christian interactions in Italy before 1500

Here is a Vatican copy of Cordovero's Pardes Rimonim - https://digi.vatlib.it/view/MSS_Neofiti.28, folio 100r Neofiti.28_0207_fa_0100r http://www.rosscaldwell.com/Neofiti.28_0207_fa_0100r_m.jpg The paths are the same as Kircher's up to Yod (between Gedulah and Tiferet), but after that I don't recogn...
