John Dee. Edited by Joseph H. Updated May 29, Introduction This book consists of detailed instructions for communicating with angels and employing their aid for practical purposes. Written in the form of a personal Grimoire, or handbook of magic, it consists of excerpts and elaborations from Dee's detailed records of his "mystical exercises" found in Mysteriorum Libri Quinque.
For the most part it is a draft version of Dee's slightly better known work, De Heptarchia Mystica , and like it describes details of Dee's and Kelley's magical workings that occurred prior to the well known records published by Meric Casaubon as A True and Faithful Relation of what passed for many yeers between Dr.
John Dee The latter, of course, was used and elaborated on by the founders of the Golden Dawn, and has come to be known as Enochian magic. The present manuscript is in Dee's own handwriting, and is now preserved in the British Library under the catalog number Additional MS. While very similar to De Heptarchia Mystica , to my knowledge this text has never been published or studied at length. The manuscript is the most difficult to read Dee manuscript I've examined; it contains some of Dee's worst handwriting, and is very faded and damaged in places.
Nevertheless, I believe it has been worth the effort of editing, as it contains some valuable material not found elsewhere. Of special interest are the details it fills in from the lost beginning of Quartus Liber Mysteriorum , which provide insight into the mysterious Covenant Table , the ornate chair, and the globe used thereafter.
It also assigns planets to the Filij lucis "sons of light" and the Filij filiorum "sons of the sons". There is also a table of letters with 24 columns and 13 rows, which I have not identified in any other source, and may be unique. This text also allows us to fix its date, May 30, It was a time when few spiritual actions were recorded, while Dee was still on the Continent he returned to England in A few days earlier Dee recorded in his diary that Edward Kelley "did open the great secret to me, God be thanked!
I have consequently included all of Dee's editorial marks, crossed out text here indicated in strikeout font , and intralinear corrections here indicated in superscript font.
My editorial notes, and damaged text filled in from Sl. Hagonel This work shall haue relation to tyme present, and present vse. To Mysteries far exceding it: And finally, to a purpose and Intent, Wherby the Maiestie and Name of God, shall, and may, and, of force must appeare; with the Apparition of his wonders, and mervayles yet unhard of.
This Arte is the first part of a Threfold Arte, ioyning man, with the knowledg of the 1. World, the 2. Gouernment of his Creatures, and the 3. Michael, Novemb. Thow hast a work of Three proportions in Esse, of Seuen in forme: which is of it self diuided by a number Septenarie. Of the Cowrse, estate, and detemination of things above, things next, and things below: which of it self is pure, perfect, and without blemish.
King Carmara, Nouemb. Thow hast byn told perfectly, playnely, and absolutely, not onely the Condition, dignitie, and estate of All things that God hath framed: But allso withall, thow wart deliuered, the most perfect forme and vse of them. Carmara, Novemb. King Carmara, die 17 Novemb. Uriel, May 5, Note it thorowghly: they are my Servants.
I am Bornogo. This is my Seale, this my true Character. Glory to God. Behold, Behold, lo Behold my mighty powre consisteth in thys. Lerne wisdome by my words. Loke unto thy charge truely: Thow art yet dead. Thow shallt be revyved. But oh, blesse god truely. Whose Glory is withoute ende. Thow hast written me, but yet dost not know me.
Use me in the name of God : I shall at the tyme appoynted be ready. I will manifest the works of the Seas: and the miracles of the Deape, shall be known. What I say is not of my self: neyther that which is sayd to me, is of them selves, but it is sayd of him which liueth for euer. These Mysteries hath God lastly, and of his great Mercyes graunted unto thee. I haue answered thy dowting mynde. Thow shailt be glutted, yea filled, yea thow shalt swell and be puffed up with the perfect knowledge of Gods Mysteries in his mercies.
Carmara, die Abuse them not. Be faithfull, Use Mercy. I rayng by him: and live by him, which rayngneth and liueth for euer. Thow hast 42 letters. Whan thow wilt work for any thing apperteyning unto the estate of a good King: Thow must first call uppon him, which is theyr prince.
In owtward sense, my words are true: I speak now of the use of one of the first, that I spak of; or manifested yesterday. Sayd I not, and shewed I not, which had the government of Princes? Yf it rule worldly princis, how much more shall it work with the Princis of Creation?
Thow desyrest use. I teach use. And yet the Art is to the farder understanding [r] of all sciences, that are past, present, or yet to come. Kings there are in Nature, with Nature, and above Nature. Thow shalt be cumforted. But respect the world to come: Whereunto thow art provyded, and for what ende: and that, in what tyme.
Serve god truely, Serve him justly. Great care is to be had, with those that meddle with princis affayres: Much more consideration, with whome thow shallt meddle, or use any practise.
He preserveth his faithful, and shaddoweth the iust, w th a sheld of honor. God doth bless you both: whose mercy, goodnes and grace, I pronownce and utter uppon you. I haue sayd. Dee, Dee, Dee, At length, but not to late. Lo thus thow seest the Glory of Gods creatures: whom thow mayst use, with the consideration of the day, theyr King, theyr prince and his character: The King and Prince govern for the hole day: the rest according to the six parts of the day.
Use them to the glory of God prayse and honor of him, which Created them, to the laude and prayse of his Maiestie. King Carmara, Novemb. Write this reverently. Note it with submission. Thow shalt work marvaylous marvaylously by my workmanship in the Highest. Unto my Prince my Subiect are deliuered the keyes of the Mysteries of the earth. Use them, They are, and shalbe at thy commanndement.
King Bnaspol. By me thow shalt cast out the powr of all wycked Spirits. By me thow shalt know the doings and practises of evyll men: and more then may be spoken, or uttred to man.
King Bnaspen, die Deus nr, Deus nr, Deus inquam ille nr, Verus cum veris suis Angelis, eiq e servientibus, semper verus est Pete quae vis. Age inquam Quid vis? Age King Carmara, Novemb. There is yet wanting a stone. In the uttermost part of the Roman possession. Kepe it sincerely: Let no mortall hand towch it but thy own. In the myddst wherof must the stone be, which was allso browght.
Go and thow shalt receyue. Tary and you shall receyue. Slepe and you shall see: But watch and yo r eyes shalbe fully opened. Out of Seuen Thow hast byn instructed, of the lesser part most perfectly. Raphael A o Martij All those before spoken of, are Subiect to thy Call. Of frendship, at any tyme, thow mayst see them , and know what thow wylt. Raphael, Marty
