The Angelical Language Volume II - An Encyclopedic Lexicon of the Tongue of Angels (John Dee & Edward Kelley)
by Aaron Leitch
This masterwork is the most comprehensive analysis of John Dee's Angelical language ever undertaken. Most Enochian dictionaries merely present word lists—this encyclopedic textbook presents a wealth of original material and expands upon (and corrects) previously published information. It is designed so readers can actually learn the language and use it in their own magick.
For the first time ever, 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, and more. The Angelical Language, Volume II 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. There are no inclusions from later mystics or organizations. This reference work, along with its companion guide, The Angelical Language, Volume I: The Complete History and Mythos of the Tongue of Angels, is the authoritative guide to the celestial language in its purest form.
“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
