After mastering the arts and sciences of his time, Elizabethan magus Dr. John Dee (1527–1608) decided that worldly knowledge could no longer provide him with the wisdom he sought, and, like many other learned men of the time, he turned to magick. In 1582, he and his clairvoyant companion Edward Kelley made magical contact with a number of spiritual entities who identified themselves as angels, the same ones who communicated with Enoch and the patriarchs of the Old Testament. They revealed three distinct magical systems of vision magick to Dee and Kelley over the next three years. The third and final of these included a series of “calls” to be recited in an angelic language in order to raise the magician’s consciousness to a level where angelic contact was possible.
Lon Milo DuQuette introduces the origins of Enochian magick in Enochian Vision Magick, giving the expert and novice alike the opportunity not only to see the big picture of the entire system, but also the practical means by which he or she can become attuned in the same step-by-step manner that first prepared Dee and Kelley.
