Book Description

1 Jun 2010
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 is designed so readers can actually learn the language, and use it in their own magick. It features a pronunciation key designed to make the language pronounceable in real life. For the first time ever, every Enochian word recorded in Dee's books, journals, and personal grimoires is recorded and cross-referenced in a number of helpful ways, allowing the reader to recognize root words, alternate spellings, and more. This is the authoritative guide to Celestial Language in its purest form.

3.0 out of 5 stars Room for improvement 22 May 2010
By Veritas
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting work, where clearly a lot of effort has gone into it. However, I was somewhat disappointed by the fact that the author has used, for his main source, Casaubon's printed version of Dee's works, which contain many errors. One example will suffice: the word 'Peral', to be found in Key 5 (according to Leitch and many other authors), never appears in Dee's works at all. It is in fact a misprint for 'Peoal'. At least Leitch has inserted it in its correct position. There are a number of other spelling errors throughout the Keys. I would also strongly argue against some of the numbered listings of the Keys near the beginning of the book, where, in my view, they are clearly wrong, but it was nice to see that in the first Key he lists 86 words (despite the fact that many individual words are numbered incorrectly), which is certainly correct. My last criticism is with accents: Dee never uses the circumflex (found throughout this work, and interpreted as as long vowel); all these should be replaced with a breve (from the Latin brevis - short), being a short vowel or syllable. The number of errors in this work are just too numerous to list, simply because the author is not using original source works.
To be of any real value, works such as this must be based upon Dee's original manuscripts; relying on printed sources is a serious mistake. I have found no printed source which is free from errors, some of them are appalling. My own 40 year study in this field may one day be published. As a final note, I would say that, a revised and corrected version of this work would be a valuable addition to Enochian (not a word Dee ever used) literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive 21 Aug 2010
By cybra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
After wading through the currently available books on Enochian, I was not satisfied with the Golden Dawn's approach, especially in regard to the calls. This work is the most interesting I've found on the Angelic language and it's possible structure and usage. It's the only one that covers possible grammar. Angelic looks like it's very idiomatic, as a very ancient language would be, but that makes it tricky for a modern user. The author really helped me to see how Angelic indicates how the angels think. It explains much about their culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource 12 Nov 2012
By Ate Eight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As someone who is actively researching and learning this language I own probably every book on the subject. This book (and its Volume 1 companion) are without a doubt the best written and researched of all of them. Buying both volumes can be a bit of an expense, but for those who are seriously studying the language it is worth it.
