In this episode we discuss the discovery of a ancient ruins in Saudi Arabia that pre-dates the Pyramids or Stonehenge before continuing the story of John Dee. In this episode we focus on the latter part of his life which was less successful than his early years. We finish off by discussing Dee's influence on the occult through the centuries. music by V►LH►LL vlhll.bandcamp.com
In this episode we discuss the discovery of a kitten-sized dinosaur before delving into the life of John Dee. The 17th century scholar and occultist, whose contributions to the world aren't simply based in the occult, arguably changed the world through horoscopes and divination. Also at least three monarchs die in this episode, so that's not too bad. music by V►LH►LL vlhll.bandcamp.com
Say the words Magician, Occultist and Angel Magic and one name comes immediately to mind - Dr. John Dee. About as close as England has ever come to producing a real life Wizard, Dee is one of the most scrutinized, analyzed and obsessed over figures of the 16th century. Blazingly brilliant at Mathematics, Astronomy and Astrology in his own time, he is known mostly nowadays for a particular segment of his life. For less than a decade, Dee and a questionable figure by the name of Edward Kelley would converse with what they believed to be nothing less than Angels. Such activities have intrigued, astounded and confounded us to this Day. If there ever was a Titan of Magic, it is Dr. John Dee.
Hieroglyphic Monad By John Dee (Audiobook)John Dee (13 July 1527 – 1608 or 1609) was an Anglo-Welsh mathematician, astronomer, astrologer, teacher, occultist, and alchemist. He was the court astronomer for, and advisor to, Elizabeth I, and spent much of his time on alchemy, divination and Hermetic philosophy. As an antiquarian, he had one of the largest libraries in England at the time. As a political advisor, he advocated for the founding of English colonies in the New World to form a "British Empire", a term he is credited with coining.Dee eventually left Elizabeth's service and went on a quest for additional knowledge in the deeper realms of the occult and supernatural. He aligned himself with several individuals who may have been charlatans, travelled through Europe and was accused of spying for the English crown. Upon his return to England, he found his home and library vandalised. He eventually returned to the Queen's service, but was turned away when she was succeeded by James I. He died in poverty in London and his gravesite is unknown.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_DeeAudio taken from: https://youtu.be/2jDaKL0q1UQ
In the Elizabethan period the Italian Renaissance came to England. Even though the English had broken with the Roman Church they were still following the Italians in astrology, philosophy, alchemy and Magick. During the reign of The Virgin Queen the British would exceed the Italians in that one aspect of the Hermetic Arts – Magick. The Angelic Revelation of Dr. John Dee is certainly the high water mark of Renaissance Theurgy. But we magicians sometimes forget that the English Elizabethan period was a Magical Age. It was the Time of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, Milton’s “Paradise Lost” and Spencer’s “The Faerie Queene.” Magick was in the air. So let us look back on this golden age and recall some of its magical treasures.

John Dee - Angels, Demons and Wife Swapping in the British Empire
Macabre London Podcast
It’s unlikely today that if you were to question a scientist about their research that they would cite magic as one of their avenues of study.To one scientific pioneer, magic was just a part of his arsenal of tools for questioning and understanding anything and everything. So much so that he even sought the advice of angels to aid him in his quest to understand how the universe worked, even delving into demonology.As a royal advisor and metaphysicist the world was an unending portal of unexplored possibility, but some things should be left undiscovered, especially when they lead you not only toward the path of spiritual enlightenment but also toward the occult, danger, madness and the very real threat of execution.This time on Macabre London, we uncover the story of John Dee and his associate Edward Kelley.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------Patreon——————————-If you like the podcast and would like it to continue then please support us on Patreon.
