The Angelical language channeled by alchemist Edward Kelley and recorded by royal astrologer John Dee has mystified magicians, linguists, historians, and cryptographers for generations. It’s even rumored that the language may be an encryption method of some kind, unbroken to this day. 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.
This 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.
Aaron Leitch’s long-awaited masterwork reveals in plain language—for the first time ever—how the Angelical language was received, for what it was intended, and how to use it properly, providing a fascinating historical context for its practical application in The Angelical Language, Volume II: An Encyclopedic Lexicon of the Tongue of Angels.
“The Angelical Language is the single most comprehensive text ever written on the subject of the Enochian magical system and language of Elizabethan luminary, Dr. John Dee. This two-volume magnum opus demonstrates Aaron Leitch’s familiarity with practical magic as well as his skill as a meticulous researcher. A must-have book.”— Chic Cicero and Sandra Tabatha Cicero, Chief Adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn
What is Enochian Magick? How did John Dee and Edward Kelly come to possess knowledge of the Angelical language previously hidden? And how did that Angelical language become what we today know as Enochian Magick? Aaron Leitch, author of The Angelical Language, Volume I and Volume II, explains.
While dismissed in scientific circles, the idea that we could arrive at some
language that more accurately or efficiently communicates with spirits or
our own deep minds is a common one in magic. The most famous of
attempts to do is often called Enochian, although the creator, John Dee,
called it "the Angelic Language." John Dee, who was court astrologer to
Queen Elizabeth I in the...
From the very advent of the spoken word among humanity, language has been considered something sacred and magickal, and remains so to this day. Still, priests and mystics have begun to look into the past for sacred language for use in religious rites. Eventually the belief has developed that all languages must trace their roots to some original prototype. What is this original language, traced back to God? Aaron Leitch, author of The Angelical Language, explains.
Today, many students are familiar with the so-called Holy Inquisitions (also known among Neopagans as the “Burning Times”) conducted by medieval religious authorities. It brings to mind images of Pagan midwives and healers (or “witches”) suffering ...
In my book, Modern Magick, I gave a brief introduction to one of the most important people in the history of magick, Dr. John Dee (1527–1608 or 1609). More than a magician, Dee was also one of the most interesting and fascinating figures of the Elizabethan Age. When he died, his home in Mortlake (a district of London on the southern bank of the... read this article
