The Angelical Language: Volume I – The Complete History and Mythos of the Tongue of Angels

$39.95

by Aaron Leitch

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.??
