The Angelic Reformation: John Dee, Enochian Magick & the Occult Roots of Empire is about Queen Elisabeth I's court astrologer, Dr. John Dee and his influence on the modern world and the western Magickal/Esoteric tradition. Louv (it seems to me) comes at this from the perspective of somone well versed in the western magickal tradition, both in theory and practice, and therefore lends a unique perspective to Dee's life and work. This is because a lot of occult writing and concepts will not make a lot of sense unless one has explored them in practice and so developed an occult bullS*** filter and an understanding of "twilight language".
Like Giordano Bruno, Dee was a man both of science and of spirituality/mysticism/magic. He was one of the last great explorers and scholars to straddle the line between the spiritual and the profane before the schism of "enlightenment" and was one of the most (if not the most) knowledgeable men of his time, basically knowing most of what that could be learnt through books and academic study. Dee influenced the forming of the British Empire, the dissemination of mathematics to the common people of Britain and many other achievements, but none as weird as that of Enochian magick, received through the magickal workings of Dee and Edward Kelley.
This book also explores how John Dee and his many important contributions to western society and historical trajectory (read: the British Empire) have mostly been expunged from the historical records for political and fundamentalist religious reasons (which is always good for suppressing information).
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone interested in the occult, John Dee or just history in general. Git u one!
