"... examines the Angelical language channeled by alchemist Edward Kelley and recorded by royal astrologer John Dee, which has mystified magicians, linguists, historians, and cryptographers for generations. This fascinating, in-depth analysis reveals the truth behind the saga of two Renaissance wizards who spoke with angels and received instruction in the celestial tongue. The first volume begins with an exploration of the mystical traditions that influenced Dee's work-the Fifty Gates of Binah, the legends of Enoch, and the Book of Soyga. It presents an in-depth study of the forty-nine Tables of Loagaeth (Speech From God), the forty-eight Angelical Keys (or Calls), and the drama surrounding them as chronicled in Dee's journals. Special features include an analysis of the translations of the 48 Keys, instructions for the magickal use of Angelical characters, and a complete Angelical Psalter. Volume II is a comprehensive analysis of John Dee's Angelical language in encyclopedic from along with a wealth of original material which expands upon (and corrects) previously published information. It is designed so readers can actually learn the language and use it in their own magick. Every Angelical word recorded in Dee's books, journals, and personal grimoire is recorded and cross-referenced in a number of helpful ways, allowing the reader to recognize root words, alternate spellings, etc. Volume II also includes notes about each word's definition, history, or usage-both Dee's original marginal notations and new commentary by the author. Also presented are Dee's own phonetic notations, as well as a brand-new pronunciation key designed to make it easier to speak the language. The material within these pages is based strictly upon Dee's journals and personal grimoire. A massive reference for the Enochian student and practitioner.
