From Enoch book to symbolism
of John Dee
Is there a language of angels? It was the 16th century and at the court of Queen Elizabeth I, in England, lived the astronomer and astrologer John Dee. He was very close to the sovereign and could enjoy his protection. Around 1580 he moved away from rationalism to begin to investigate the world of spiritism and the occult. It was during this time that he became close to Edward Kelley, occultist and alchemist. From the moment Dee and Kelley began to collaborate, they carried out many research and studies on the magical and esoteric world. More than anything else, Dee and Kelley are still known today for transcribing the language of angels, which was defined by Dee and Kelley as “Enochian”. Enoch is a biblical patriarch to whom is attributed an apocryphal text called “the book of Enoch”, considered “canonical” in the first centuries of Christianity.
Monad, which means unique, represents the simple substance, indivisible, inestimated and of a spiritual nature that constitutes the ultimate element of things.
also known as Sigillum Dei Emeth is a revised and corrected version of Sigillum Dei, created by the alchemist John Dee, who added the name “Æmeth” or “Truth”, one of the 72 names of God in the cabalistic tradition.
Dee thus tries to express in a symbol the homogeneity of the Universe and the Creator, each individual element being described as a component related to the Monad, represented as a Mercurial emblem combined with the point and the Binary Ascending.
