The Enochian Evocation of Dr. John Dee by Geoffrey James

The Enochian Evocation of Dr. John Dee by Geoffrey James is an excellent resource for this system that was given to Dr. John Dee by angels. If this is something you would like to learn more about, this is a must-read for your collection.


Book Description
“Based on the transcriptions of Dr. John Dee, the famous Elizabethan scientist and magus, The Enochian Evocation of Dr. John Dee is the translation of the original material received from direct Angelic contact. In 1852 Dee and his partner Edward Kelly, while gazing into a crystal stone, began to see and hear angels. These beings desired to re-establish the true art of magic, which had been lost due to man's wickedness and ignorance. The true magical art, these beings claimed, would bestow superhuman powers upon its practitioners, change the political structure of Europe, and herald the coming of the Apocalypse. Dee believed this research would greatly benefit mankind and documented all of the channeled information into a series of manuscripts and workbooks. Author Geoffrey James presents here the direct translation of the core of the channeled material itself, framed in a historical context, with authority and integrity.” – The Enochian Evocation of Dr. John Dee


My Thoughts
The Enochian Evocation of Dr. John Dee is a very detailed book about the material. It is written so it is clear to understand, but it is a highly complex system so reading the material more than once is a must.


Overall, this book is a fantastic intro guide for the beginner seeking information about the Enochian magick system and also those who already practice it. It provides clear information for working with it and also which invitations you should use for certain things you want/require of the angels.

I recommend this book for everyone who is interested in this type of system. If it isn’t something that interests you, or you think it goes against your religion, obviously you wouldn’t like it. For those that do want to research it though, this is a great book to get you started.
