This chapter shows how adept Butterfield was at engaging several themes all at once. Paramount among these themes was further study of historical thought and historiography, which he followed at the invitation of other people. Quite apart from the excitement surrounding Namier, which occupied what little time he had for scholarly work during his mastership, his discourse on historiography took a startling new turn in the work he threw together on the side. The initial medium of his new thought was a pair of lectures at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in December 1957. Following these he presented an abbreviated version of the Jerusalem lectures at the London School of Oriental and African Studies in January 1958. This was the very moment when the Namier turmoil was exploding all around him.
