Although now commonly associated with Dee, the Sigillum Dei did not actually originate with him.In fact, in his diary entry of March 10, 15g2, Dee notes that the Sigillum Dei is "already perfected" in one of the books that he owns.' This book was most likely The sworn Book of Honorius,a Latin magical work that dates back to the thirteenth century, which contains a version of the Sigillum Dei.a However, a few days after writing the above comment) Dee goes on to record that he has spent time considering a number of variants of the seal, which suggests that he had access to several other sources that presented different forms of it. \Thether he was consulting multiple sources or multiple versions of the same source is uncertain, but when he was unable to determine which of the sources was correct, Dee apparently decided to resolve the matter by re-evaluating and redesigning the seal. His diary entries for subsequent days record a long series of angelic evocations and communication with the Archangels Michael and Uriel designed to remedy this uncertainty.t Not surprisingly, none of the earlier depictions of the sigil are as elaborate as Dee's Sigillum Dei, nor are they constructed in the same manner. While the heptagonal pattern of the sigil is present, the earlier sigils are much more in line with what one might expect from a grimoire of that period. Divine names and the names of Archangels taken from Kabbalistic sources are written about the body of the sigil, and a further Divine name of seventy-two letters is written about the circumference. Overall the design is simpler and more traditional than the version of Dee and his assisrant, Edward Kelley (1555-r5e7). A number of variants of this early form exist, most notably in the manuscripts of the previously mentioned The Sworn Book of Honorius (which even goes so far as to dictate the colors to be used within the seal), and in Athanasius Kircher's Gdipus.Egypticus (1653). This latter volume was acrually written and published after Dee's death, though the author would have been unaware of Dee and Kelley's work on the Sigillum Dei and the representation in it is almost certainly drawn from earlier) manuscript sources. Curiously, Kircher actually suggests that the Sigillum Dei is a seal of the planetvenus, although this does not appear to be supported elsewhere.o -j. Sloane MS 3188:

during her reign, many being burned at the stake. It was not until the ascension of the fiercely Proresranr Elizabeth | (1533-1603) that this bloody chapter of British history ended, though many of those previously in charge of the hangman's noose now found themselves dangling from it. Dee narrowly escaped this fate himself, for in 1555 he was accused of "calculating" and "conjuring." He was subsequently arrested and subjected to repeated interrogations. In essence, the charges brought against him were probably correct; being both an astronomer and an astrologer he could have hardly avoided the activities of the type of which he was accused. He had in fact drawn up astrological charts for both Queen Mary and eueen Elizabeth, and would personally select the date for the latter's coronation based on favorable astrological conditions. His later appoinrment as an advisor to eueen Elizabeth would suggest that the allegations about his religious inclinations were also well-founded. In spite of this, Dee's accusers were unable to substantiate their claims against him, and he was eventually released after six months of imprisonment. Dee's early years were filled with all of the wonders of the emerging European Renaissance and he developed a passion for scientific discovery and the pursuit of knowledge. Aside from his well-known accomplishments as an astrologer, Dee was also an exceptional mathematician who wrote a much-admired preface to Euclid's Elements, a seminal text on mathematics.T Dee was also a skilled cartographer who studied at the side of such luminaries as Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) at the prestigious college of Louvain. His private library contained between four and five thousand books and manuscripts, a truly vast amount by the standards of the times. It was renowned as one of the greatest collections in England, and became a focal point for traveling scholars from throughout Britain and Europe. A great patriot, Dee found himself called upon to give counsel to eueen Elizabeth on a number of occasions. He was a staunch advocate of Britain's advancement toward naval supremacy, which he felt was integral to his country's development as a true world power. The defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 and events in subsequent centuries have proven that his counsel on this matter could not have been more prescient. The advice he gave to Martin Frobisher's expedition in their quest to discover the fabled Northwest Passage (thought to run across the top of North America to the riches of the East) was not) however, quite so beneficial. In spite of Dee's reputation as an excellent 7. Benjamin\Wooley, The Queen's Conjurer.. p. 13

Biblical patriarch Enoch, who was said to have stood in the presence of God.e complete with its own angelic alphabet and language, and is quite capable of standing as a complete magical sysrem on its own right. However, it was much, much, more to Dee, who almost certainly viewed it as his own scientific investigation into rhe narure of God's influence in the world. In the language and understanding of his day, he sought that same, elusive "Grand unifuingTheory" rhat some present-day physicists seek, although at the time it necessarily stemmed from the "radical truths" of an omnipotent Creator rather than empirical scientific data. The details for the construction of the Sigillum Dei are contained in a series of manuscripts that record dialogues said to have taken place between John Dee, Edward Kelley and a number of different angels and spirits. The manuscripts are known collectively as The Fizte Books of Mystery, and the story of their survival is one of the most remarkable tales in the annals of occult literature. Although in his early life Dee was quite popular and wielded considerable influence, he still had to be somewhat circumspect about his occult activities, and it seems that very few people would have been aware of his angelic conversations. Many of the papers pertaining to his esoteric work are known to be lost, some perhaps deliberately destroyed, and others hidden for safekeeping. The diaries containing his work on the Sigillum Dei were found nearly sixty years after his death in the false bottom of a cedar chest that had once belonged to Dee, having been hidden there for safekeeping. Given the persistent accusations of sorcery that followed Dee throughout the course of his life, it is no surprise that he would have taken measures to ensure the safety not only of his work, but of his repuration as well. As the story goesr the chest in which Dee hid the diary manuscripts passed out of his estate upon his death in late 1608 or early 1609 and was later re-sold, eventually finding its way into the hands of a confectioner and his wife. They owned it for some twenty years, completely unaware of the chest's hidden treasure until they happened ro move it from its usual place while re-arranging furniture. Hearing a rattling in the bottom, they investigated and found a small, concealed drawer, which they opened to reveal a number of books and manuscript leaves.

vehemently to the contrary, and it would seem unwise to give unqualified support to either conrenrion.There do appear to have been times that Kelley fixed errors in the transcriptions once the evocations had ended, suggesting that he had some preconceived notion of their contents. However, it also seems unlikely that he would have been able to memorize the large amounts of information contained in the numerous tables that define the bulk of their later work. Many of these tables were acrually dictated backwards, making the claim that he memorized them even more unlikely. This is, of course, if one neglects to remember that he was scrying into a reflectiae surface,in which case he might have read the tables by sleight of hand. Concealing them from Dee's vantage point, he could have read tables placed on his person by their reflection in the surface of the crystal ball or mirror, meaning that the images would have been necessarily reversed. Still, there are a number of other instances where Kelley simply either could not have known the information conveyed, or that would have required mental abilities far beyond those with which he is generally credited. When examining such questions) we should also turn a critical eye towards John Dee himself, whom we know to have been well versed in the methodology ofTrithemius' Steganographia, abook on cryptography that was cunningly concealed in the guise of a work on magical squares derived from angelic names. Steganographia was written around 1499 and circulated in manuscript form for over a century before finally being published in Frankfurt in 1606. Dee's manuscript copy was said to have been one of his most prized possessions. The fundamental similarities between the techniques of the steganographia, Dee's construcrion of the Sigillum Dei, and the other tables that serve as the basis of the Enochian sysrem are difficult to ignore.That Dee u'as investigating or utilizing a method of cryptography while later spying for Queen Elizabeth in continental Europe is not out of the question and in all truth quite probable, though it would seem admirtedly ill-advised to hide one damnable offense (spying) in the guise of another (sorcery). A reasonable question then follows: "Is it also a viable system of angelic magic?" Present historical evidence does not tell us with absolute certainty whether Dee and Kelley's work actually represented a magical system they both believed to be communicated directly from the Divine, an elaborate and prolonged hoax perpetrated by Kelley at the expense of the humble, if not gullible, Renaissance magician, or an ingenious system of cryptography whose cipher has yet to be discovered. It is possible, though admittedly unlikely, that

The Sigillum Dei

lo

as

published in Crowley's The Equinox

As a subset of the Enochian system) the Sigillum Dei is somewhat insulated from the previously-mentioned doubts about the authenticity of the creations of Dee and Kelley, as there is of course an external precedent for the seal that is quite independent of their work. Even if the two had sat down and completely fabricated the sigil, a scenario that is not only plausible but reasonable, the idea is known to be based on the pre-existing seal set down in The Sworn Book of Honorius.If nothing more, the expansion and encoding of the sigil are remarkable achievements in their own right, for they add greatly to the rudimentary form of its predecessor. As defined by Dee and Kelley, the Sigillum Dei contains just the sort of patterns and mathematical precision in which Dee would have reveled, an ecstatic union of the esoteric disciplines of both The Sworn Book of Honorius and Steganographia. As a fascinating and exceptional blueprint for a powerful system of planetary magic, the Sigillum Dei is nothing short of brilliant. However, despite its renown amongst ceremonial magicians, surprisingly little work has been published on the use of this sigil as the basis for a system of angelic evocarion,

latter approach has been attempted principally within the realm of astrology, whose adherents have consistently sought to align the concepts of the more recently discovered planets with the pre-existing symbols and ideas that are in sympathy with them. However, the adoption of new planetary bodies within the scope of modern astrology still falls short of Copernican theory by its retention of both the Sun and Moon as principle aspects, while continuing in the failure to recognize Earth itself. (For this latter omission, they might be forgiven. Astrology is inherently geocentric by nature due to the fact that the individual is considered the principle locus of the activity, and we happen to live upon the Earth.) These inconsistencies aside, it can still be argued even should someone achieve greater success in harmonizing these concepts than has so far been accomplished, they are nonetheless ultimately misguided. An alternative perspective would be to treat the planets, as understood in the light of their related attributes, as manifestations to which we can attach archetypal ideas. These, of course, need not change, irrespective of our acceptance of one cosmological doctrine over another. This is not to advocate a return to geocentricism, but to suggest instead that the real and manifest spheres of the Ptolemaic universe do allow us to materialize' by proxy, certain ideas and concepts that could otherwise be difficult to grasp. It is not important that the ideas are assigned to the planets, but that the planets are assigned to the ideas.By making them archetypes, they remain a cogent and rational system without the necessity of adding and subtracting our known set of luminaries, which are merely handles that allow us to more readily grasp and associate common, related, but equally abstract, concepts. A listing of common planetary correspondences is given hereafter. Pr-aNsr

As well as revealing that the cosmological theory which underpins much of\Testern Hermeticism is inaccurateJ modern science has also demonstrated the need to drastically revise its theory of the elements. Our current scientific model is the periodic table of the elements, which defines well over a hundred different essential atomic species. The genesis of this sort of elemental classification lies in the early establishment of four distinct elements or qualities which suggested that all matter was a combination of earth, air, water, and fire. Earth was cool and dry, air was moist and warm, water was moist and cool, and fire was dry and hot. These associations far pre-date the Renaissance, hailing from early Greek philosophy and later refined and expanded by a number of classical philosophers, including both Plato and Aristotle. Anything observed could be described as an admixture of these classical elements. It may seem overly simple, but this was the sole system of elemental classification utilized by those attempting to advance the new field of scientific enquiry for many years. It is quite fair to say that the four-element theory was more qualitative than quantitative, which is a distinct advantage of the modern method of classification. It is not that the former method of classification did not work, but that the new system was much more empirically powerful in its specificity, thus resulting in the deprecation of the former within the realm of scientific examination. TherWestern Hermetic tradition associated the four elements with certain virtues, in a way strongly reminiscent of its treatment of the planets. Aside from an association with the qualities of hoticold and dry/wet, the elements were further defined within the scope of Hermetica to have certain ideas that tied in with the psyche. While the fifth element of spirit was said to be "above

John Dee and Edward Kelley's work on the Sigillum Dei began in earnest in I5B2 when Dee found himself unable to determine a definitive form of the seal from the various early representations that were available for comparison.t By his account he turned. to the angels with whom he was in contact, and they communicated the details of a design to him, which he dutifully recorded in The First Book of Mystery. According to the manuscripts, the seal was to be constructed from purified wax, in the shape of a disk, one and oneeighth inches thick and nine inches in diameter. The back of the seal was to

bear an equilateral cross about which the Divine Name "AGT.A"2 had been graven. The word was to start in the upper left quadrant formed by the cross and run clockwise around the successive chambers.

The front of the seal bore the now-famous complex geometric design with It is the names around this inner pentagram that give the most overt evidence of the planetary forces that are, quite literally, at the heart of the Sigillum Dei.In rhe center of the penragram is a crucifix, abour which is written the letters LA, VA, NA, and EL-Levanael. Another name extends from each point of the pentagram: Zedekieil, Madimiel, Semeliel, Nogahel, and Corabiel. Finally, surrounding the entirety of the inner chamber is the name Zabathi. This name , Zabathi, actually omits the ".e1" suffix that is appended to the orher names, and terminares with the numbers 2l and 8. If we look to the outer circumference of the Sigillum Dei, the letters having these numeric values are "e" and "1", respectively, so we see that these numbers are a blind for this same "-el" suffix. This fulfills the remainder of the seventh and final name, Zabathi(el).These names have precedence outside of a pentagram at the center.

The next major component of the Sigillum Dei consists of the two heptagons traced within the bounds of a larger heptagram, or seven-sided star. This entire complex houses the names of four sets of angelic beings, known as the "Children of Light," each of which is composed of seven angels having from one to seven letters in its name.V4rile on the surface this might seem to be their only common feature, all four sets of names are constructed from the same sevenfold table or square) which in turn is constructed from the seven names of the Planetary Intelligences we've just described. This Planetary Square is the primary key to unraveling many of the mysteries of the Sigillum Dei.

AEr,rnr.H

The angels of the first series are known as rhe "sons of the Sons of Light," whose names are located within the boundaries of the innermost heptagon. They are, in order, E, An, Ave, Liba, Rocle, Hagonel, and Ilemese. As shown, each name can be derived by reading up and to rhe right from the lower right corner of the table. Some, but not all, of the names must be completed using the appropriate alpha-numeric substitutions, though the application of this rule is curiously inconsistent. Generally, the numbers are only translated if there is no letter occupying that squarer except for Hagonel, whose terminal letter is represented as the number 30 within the square also conraining the letter "E."

The "Sons of Light" are the third set of angels, appearing within the interlaced bands of the heptagram that serve as the boundary for the two inner heptagons.While the sequence of angels in the previous two sections is found by moving around the heptagon in sequence, the Sons of Light at first would appear to break this format. To see the continuing pattern, one must follow the interwoven bands of the heptagram as it works its way around the sigil rather than just looking at the next name to the right. The names of the Sons of Light can be derived from the Planetary Square by reading down and to the right from the lower left hand corner: I, Ih, Ilr, Dmal, Heeoa, Beigia, and Stimcul. Note that the last letter in Stimcul is here given as "L"'while in the derivation of the Sons of the Sons of Light (whose names also intersect this square) it is given as "E." Both are technically correctr as this square contains both the letters 2l ("8") and 8 ("L"). 2l

Uriel then states, "Beatus est qui secrete nomina sua conservatrs " meaning "Blessed is He who keeps his name secret." As such, I shall refer hereafter to these Divine Names as the "Secret Names of God" so as to differentiate them from yet another set of Divine Names that will be encountered shortly. This set of names completes the use of the Planetary Square within the Sigillum Dei, and it is to a new table that we must look to decipher the outermost heptagon. However, its format is not unlike that which we encountered in the Planetary Square. 21

Reading the Secret Names.

The outermost heptagon consists of seven letters per side, with the exception of a small equilateral cross in one of the chambers, and if the previous names seemed difficult to pronounce, these are nearly impossible. They are not derived from the Planetary Square, but instead from another square of letters that has been constructed from the names of the seven planetary 4. I have taken the liberty of removing or otherwise translating the numeric placeholders within these names. 5. Sloane MS 3188, f.28b.

A series of forty mixed capital and minuscule letters encircle the circumference of the Sigillum Dei.\7ith a few notable exceptions, each of the letters in this series has been paired with a number either above or below it. The first letter given is the capital "T," which is paired with the number 4; the final letter given is a lowercase Greek omega, presumably to indicate the end of the sequence, which of course also reveals its start. According to Dee's writings, each character was received in the form of an angel, referred to as an "Angel of Lightr" forty such angels arranged in eight companies of five. Each angel would appear, display the letter and corresponding number, and then disappear, each arriving and withdrawing in its own unique way. It was the Archangel Michael, with the aid of a second angel, Semiel, that presided over the lengthy discourse in which the circumference was revealed, but there were a few missing letters once the scrying session was complete.

Not long thereafter, Kelley requested the work and locked himself away in his study, where he was conveniently contacted by the angel Uriel, who supplied the corrections. Kelley's opportune communication with Uriel obviously made Dee suspicious, and he in turn contacted the angel Michael to discover the truth. His notes indicate that he was told, quite simply, "Truth is only with God."u Perhaps Dee wanted it to be true, as he seemed satisfied with this relatively unhelpful message, although he was told the seer (Kelley) merely neglected to communicate the missing letters during the course of the operation. Questions of Kelley's seemingly obvious duplicity aside, what remains is an alpha-numeric sequence whose purpose is to construct a series of seven Divine Names that are distinct from the Secret Names constructed from the Planetary Square. Note that the associated alpha-numeric pairings on the circumference also provide the key to the numeric substitutions on the Planetary Square. For example, the letter on the circumference associated with the number 30 is "L," used in deriving the names Rocle and Akele.

This set of Divine Names can be derived by selecting a capital letter and its attendant number from the series inscribed around the outer circumference. If the number is written above the letter, then that many spaces are counted clockwise.If it is below, then they are counterclockwise.The process is repeated unril a letter is reached that is not paired with a numeric value. At that stage the name is complete. Using this formula, the names are found to be ThAaoth, GalAas, Gethog, Horlon, Innon, Aaoth, and Galethog. However, the Archangel Michael explains that whenever the "Aa" sequence is found in the middle of a word, such as in GalAas and ThAaoth, it is to be "comprehended with its inward power" and counted only as a single "a." Following a subtle re-ordering, the final rendering of the names becomes Galas, Gethog, Thaoth, Horlon, Innon, Aaoth, and Galethog. The final name, Galethog, is also found written counter-clockwise between the outer circumference and the outer heptagon in stylized capitals. When all is complete, the total number of letters in all of the derived names is intended to be equal to the total number of letters around the circumference once the "Aa" contraction is applied: forty. However, summing the number of letters results in forty-one letters, not forty, unless the "Aa" of Aaoth is contracted to a single "a" despite Michael's instruction to the contrary.While there is no known Source for these namesr the name "Innon" is referenced in Agripp a's Three Books of Occult Philosophy. Curiously enough, it occurs in chapter eleven of the third book, right before the name Emeth, with which the Sigillum Dei is of course intimately connected. With the derivation of this second set of Divine Names obtained, the examination of the Sigillum Dei is complete. The raw and primal energies of the Planetary Angels give way to the more concrete forms of the Children of Light, the Secret Names, Archangels, and the Divine Names around the circumference. However, although the nature of the sigil itself has been shown to be planetary, the planetary attributions of the angels are not yet revealed. Of course, the traditional assignments of the Archangels are given in any number of reference works, and the associations of the Planetary Intelligences are self-evident, but those of the Children of Light and Divine Names remain mysterious. They could simply be in the conventional order of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon, but if this were the case, should they start at the Child of Light containing one letter or seven? Given that the Archangel Michael is said to have deliberately rearranged the order of the Divine Names on the circumference there is presumably a predefined and important order to the sequences. ii t'

Dee's reading of the Names.

If the set of names of the Daughters of Light was intended to have been read counter-clockwise like the others, they would appear as El, Em, Ese, Anai, Eleka, Nbodza and Lucmits. Given that the Planetary Intelligences themselves are written on the square counter-clockwise, down and to the left from the upper left corner, it seems reasonable to assume that the other names should also read counter-clockwise. I also feel that there is more of a case to be made for an error in one set of names than in three. Accepting such, the names of the Daughters of Light should be corrected to El, Em, Ese, Anai, Eleka, Nbodza and Lucmits, with the other Children of Light being correct as given.

So what is this new Divine Name? Reading the letters in reverse, one is compelled to consider an encoded message by either Dee, or more likely in this case, Kelley. It reads "no my rob." Is this an admission of guilt or complicity for having taken something that was clearly from a pre-existing source, despite the manuscripts explicitly stating it was "already perfected" in one of Dee's books, The Sworn Book of Honorius? It is possible, but before going out too far on that limb, it would be well to consider that the letters can also be re-arranged to spell "by moron." Personally, I would be inclined to include Borymon as a secret Divine Name, rather than taking it as being a veiled admission of either duplicity or stupidity on the part of Dee or I{elley.

planetary names.The name of the angel ofJupiter, which is given as Zedekieil, adds an extra "i" to the namer breaking up the "el" suffix. A more consistent rendition would be Zedekiel. Note that this might also be spelled "Tzedekiel," as the Hebrew for Jupiter is Tzedek (TzDI!, and the common transliteration of the first letter (tzaddi) is "T2", not "Z." This combination is still an approximation, however, since this letter sequence never occurs in the English language. Given that there is no direct phonetic equivalent, I have chosen to retain the renaissance value of "2." Even more minor, but worth noting, is that Dee and Kelley neglect the "i" preceding the -el suffix in rendering the angel of Venus as Nogahel, which might also read Nogahiel. The following table lists the English transliteration of the Hebrew, Dee's rendering of the Planetary Intelligences, and a revision intended to more closely resemble the Hebrew root.

Now that we have a newly derived set of Planetary Intelligences) we should be able to re-construct the inner pentagram and Planetary Square, since they are ultimately created from the letters of these names. Recall that Dee had to do some questionable accounting in order to make the letters conform to the forty-nine chambers available in the Planetary Square. In several instances, letters were omitted as necessary by alpha-numeric replacement to ensure

that the result would work out to the proper count. However, the way in which this was done was rather arbitrary. In some instances the "el" suffix was abandoned in favor of its numeric equivalents, while in other instances only the "1" was similarly replaced. In counting the letters of the newly derived names for the Planetary Intelligences) we see that there are certainly more than the requisite forty-nine, so it seems that we are going to have to manage some form of reduction as well if an actual improvement is to be made.

The names of the Archangels can also be reconstituted with some minor revisions based on their Hebrew roots. Unlike the case of the Planetary Square, however, no letters in the Archangelic Square need to be reduced. The greatest change comes in restoring the name of the Archangel of Mars, Kamael, which is given by Dee as Cumael. The remaining letters, including the cross, remain intact. Overall, this causes a slight modification to the outer heptagon, but on a much smaller scale than the alterations resulting from the revision of the Planetary Square. Note that, unlike the Planetary Square, the similar Hebrew "compound letters" pehrwhich is represented as "Phr" and cheth, which is represented as "Chr" are not grouped into a single square or chamber. These combinations occur in the names of the archangels Zaphkiel, Raphael, and Michael. The Hebrew letter tzaddi (Tz), however, is still consistently rendered as "Z" in the Archangelic Square in the case of Zaphkiel and Zadkiel, much as the rendering of Zedekiel, the Planetary Angel of Jupiter.

If we refer back to the concept of the Four Worlds, we find that each of these worlds is attributed to a masculine or feminine familial archetype: Father, Mother, Son, and Daughter. These relate to the worlds of Atziluth (Archetypal), Briah (Creative), Yetzirah (Formative), and Assiah (Physical), respectively. If we look at the sigil, we see that the gender attributes of the Children of Light mirror this exactly with a Son, a Daughter, a Son of a Son, and a Daughter of a Daughter. Given that we move from a base or material aspect to a more refined and ethereal one as we move outward, we need only swap the places of the Sons of the Sons of Light and the Daughters of the Daughters of Light, and those of the Sons of Light and the Daughters of Light, to obtain a perfect symmetry with the pattern of familial archetypes in the FourrVorlds! tX/ith this new arrangement, the outermost order will be the Sons of Light as the Father archetype, instead of the Daughters of Light, which will be the next order inward as the Mother archetype within the bands of the heptagram. Then, in the second heptagon from the center, we have the Sons of the Sons of Light as the Son archetype, with the Daughters of the Daughters of Light innermost, representing the Daughter archetype. \We thus obtain symmetry between the Sigillum Dei and one of the core concepts of the Kabbalah, the pattern of the sigil's outward progression toward the Divine being now perfectly aligned. V4eile Dee's notes indicate that the central cross is a true "crucifix," I feel that an equilateral cross is actually more fitting, denoting the elements and the physical world, which fits perfectly within the pattern of the sigil as the terra firma amidst the swirling choirs of angels in the successive rings of the Sigillum Dei that surround it. Note that this alignment does not change either the names of the angels or their associated Orders, only the sequence in which they are presented. The hidden Divine Name of Borymon is also introduced into the seal, replacing the duplicated name of Galethog in the spaces between the large heptagon containing the names of the Archangels and the outer circumference containing the Divine Names derived from the Angels of Light.

While at first they may seem of little consequence, these few simple amendments actually have a profound impact on the overall composition of the seal. The Planetary Square, which defines the majority of the names found on the Sigillum Dei, has the greatest effect, for even though very few alterations were made to the actual names, it was the consistency with which we distributed the lerrers, or equally the lack of consistency in Dee and Kelley's distribution, that caused the greatest change. The other alteration was of course the re-arrangement of the angelic orders to mirror the familial archetypes of the Fourrworlds.This is such an important concept within the realms of I(abbalistic thought that it seems surprising that Dee and Kelley did not incorporate it themselves. The result is a version of the Sigillum Dei that

I would suggest any oil-based paint might suffice.) The characters themselves are written in the Enochian alphabet, given in the appendices, with twentyone letters on each side of the table and the Enochian letter "B" in each corner. The head (top) of each letter is innermost in all cases, such that they face outward around the edge of the Table of Practice, and each side is written left to right. These letters create the border of a large seal, known as the Holy Table, which decorates the top of theTable of Practice. Thus the HolyThble is actually an image painted on top of the Thble of Practice, and is therefore neither the Table of Practice itself, nor another physical table. Dominating the Holy Thble is a large hexagram traced from border to border, in the center of which is the small table of characters with four rows and three columns. Like the border, these characters are Enochian script. The positioning of the Sigillum Dei is in the center of this hexagram and square.

Square of Princes (left) and Kings (right).

The central square is constructed from a series of offset letters in the center of the table. Since the Kings and Princes are offset, we actually find a correlation: the central square is constructed from the names of the Kings Babalel, Bynepor, and Bnaspol in conjunction with their Princes, Butmono, Blisdon, and Brorges-without the offset used in creating the square.These Kings and Princes are related to the planets Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury, respectively. Taking the final two letters of the names of the I(ings and the first two letters from the names of the Princes, we have the set of letters that constructs the central square on the HolyThble; though the position of the lerters is transposed.The resulting square is actually reversed in Causabon's ATiue and Faithful Relation, but is shown correctly herein, as per Dee's notes.

The letters around the border of the HolyTable are derived from the twelveby-seven grid formed from the letters of the Kings and Princes by observing the columns. Looking at the letters from the top of the table, we find that the first six letters are the second through seventh rows of the first column, with the seventh letter being the first letter of that column. (Obviously, the "offset" of the Princes comes into play here.) The next seven letters follow exactly the same row pattern, but using the second column, with the final seven letters using the same pattern on the third column. The left side follows exactly this same order, consisting of the fourth through sixth columnsj and exhausting the letters derived from the names of the Princes. The bottom and right edges, consisting of the seventh through ninth columns and tenth through twelfth columns, respectively, now make use of the I(ings' names. \il/hereas before we had to consider the offset of the Princes, we can now simply read down the full columns in order to find the letters that fill out the remaining edges.\ffhereas the letter "B" was struck from all of the names of the Kings and Princes, we find it ensconced in the four corners of the Holy Thble-gone, but not forgotten. It is curious that while the table from which these letters are derived is explicitly laid out with the offset for the seven Kings and Princes, one has to correct for this same offset at every turn when creating the HolyThble. Seven auxiliary tables, defined also in the third of The Five Books of Mystery and named the "Ensigns of Creationr" are also evenly distributed around the table, each of which is related to a planet in the same order as the I(ings and Princes of the Angelorum Bonorum.Their construction seems baffling, if not entirely arbitrary, and it was certainly not Dee's method to operate in such a manner; but if any such explanation existed it has long since been lost.

Square for the Protective Seal.

To determine the letters between the two squares forming the rather larger border of the overall sigil, you must "overlay" this same view on the square of the Kings and Princes.You thus surround the "heart" of the sigil with this set of characters and exclude the outermost two columns on either side. In the upper left corner of the Protective Seal, for example, you find the letters, "or" "nr" and "rr" and these are the same letters found in the upper left of the pattern we set on the letter-square. You can similarly follow the positions of the other letters between the two large squares on the Protective Seal. o

archangel who many centuries later would also play a pivotal role in John Dee's occult endeavors. Michael bestowed upon King Solomon a magic ring that he told would command any demon, which of course lead to the rescue of the child.The King later used the ring to summon and command a number of well-known demons, including Beelzebub and Asmodeus, who Solomon even compelled to labor on his now-legendary Temple. It should perhaps come as no surprise that the later grimoires that allude to the Solomonic Ring never actually seem to agree on its form, so the term should be considered more of a general classification of rings designed to be used in commanding or exorcising spirits. Thus it was that the Solomonic Ring became a staple of the grimoire genre) appearing most famously in The Goetia, one of the books of the Lesser Key of Solomon.t Dee also wrote of the Solomonic Ring in a section just preceding the description of theTable of Practice in the first of The Fiae Books of Mystery. There he was told pointedly that without it "thou shalt do nothing," and the ring he describes is referred to specifically as a Ring of Solomon. It is a relatively simple design, with a square face engraved with a circle and horizontal line.lVritten clockwise around the corners starting in the upper left is the name PELE, meaning a "worker of miracles," which Agrippa suggests is from 2 the Biblical "Book of Judges." In fact, the word pele in Hebre% as N)D, means "miracler" or "wonder." The letters "L" and "V" which intersect the ring's circle, are less certain, but might represent the principal letters of the phrase from the "Book of Judges" (13:18) in which pele appears: tN)!:N"t;"t't:tD!7), often

from Christian Scripture. This was the common approach given in the grimoires of this period, which commanded the various spirits to appear by virtue of the power inherent in these "barbarous names of evocation" -generally variants of Hebrew and Greek names for the Divine. The Greater Key of Solomon and The Lesser Key of Solomon, along with the earlier Heptameron by Peter de Abano, are examples par excellence of this approach. Heptameron, also known as The Magical Elements) is mentioned explicitly be Dee himself in the first of The Fiae Books of Mystery, where he notes that the angel Salamian is the same angel as mentioned in that book under the name Salamia.t This angel appears in "The Conjuration of the Lord's Day," an oration/evocation designed for angels related to the Sun. It seems quite likely, although difficult to prove decisively, that Heptameron was a major influence on Dee's work with evocation, as it would have been (and continues to be) one of the seminal texts on the art. "The Conjuration of the Lord's Day" also includes the Archangel Michael, who even more than Salamian features prominently in the reception of the Sigillum Dei. As an aside, recall that in the second chapter I mentioned occasional inconsistencies between grimoires with respect to inverting the planetary attributions of Michael and Raphael. Here is an example of just that, for in the Heptameron we find Michael described as the Solar archangel and Raphael given as the Mercurial, exactly the opposite of Agrippa, and subsequently Dee. As there are no extant rituals, and Abano's work is specifically mentioned in Dee's manuscripts, it seems reasonable to adapt the form of the orations given therein for the purpose of evoking the Children of Light, especially since the Heptameron is unmistakably dedicated to planetary magick. While a different oration is given for each day, each of which is naturally related to a planet, the fundamental formula is always the same: the magician invokes one or more God Names as his authority, includes the Archangel, and directs the ministering angels to perform whatever duties might be prescribed to them. Here then follows a short oration based loosely on those of the Heptameron. Placeholders have been designated into which can be inserted the appropriate names drawn from whichever codex the practitioner chooses to employ. In composing the oration I have attempted to retain a slightly archaic prose style, in keeping with that of the period in which this type of magic evolved. You may of course choose to derive your own. l. Abano,

Once the operation is complete it is common practice to give the spirit

license to depart, unless it has already left of its own accord. If the spirit has not been bound to stay for any length of time, it is free to leave whenever it so chooses, making the license unnecessary. Typically, amicable spirits such as those of the Sigillum Dei will stay until the operation is completed, but it is always a good idea to give parting thanks for whatever aid they may have offered. The spirit should then depart immediately, unless there is some important matter left unattended. In fact, the magician(s) will typically feel its departure as strongly as they felt its arrival. Once the spirit has left, it can be helpful to ring a bell, knock loudly upon the altar top, or stamp a foot on the floor, stating firmly and clearly that the ritual has ended. This provides a clear delineation and helps bring everyone back to normal consciousness. A version of the license to depart that would be suitable for closing a conjuration undertaken with the Sigillum Dei is printed below.

The License to Depart O great and powerful Child of Light, [AngelJ, I thank you for your appearance and willingness to qid us on this day. Depart, as be tl4t will, unto your abode, and let there ez,ter be peace between us. Amen.

Following the departure of the spirit, it is a good practice to gather and review the record. It is especially important for the scryer to elaborate on any unrecorded evidence from the course of the evocation so that nothing is missed. A small and seemingly inconsequential event may actually be the very key to realizing your goal. Furthermore, a well-kept and well-preserved record will provide dividends for the rest of your magical career, assuming you intend to have one. Consider that if John Dee had not been such an exceptional diarist (a trait well ahead of his time), we would not have even the slightest knowledge of his work, and of course would therefore also have been denied the luxury of debating its merits herein. The process of choosing the Child of Light best suited for the operation is relatively simple, and we benefit greatly from the associations we have built

By using the elemental correspondences to determine the Order of the Children of Light, as well as the planetary correspondences to select which angel of this Order best suits our aimJ the magician can simply and precisely identifii the angel that will best be able to facilitate his or her desired outcome. It is of no consequence whether it is the elemental or the planetary quality that is determined first, but once both have been determined their intersection will define the angel of the Children of Light best suited ro manage the task. In contrast, the planetary association alone is sufficient to determine the appropriate Divine Name, Archangel, and Secret Name. PraNer

That being said, this book contains all that is required to perform the operation of calling forth the Children of Light. Having had experience with a number of different systems of evocation, including those of The Goetia, the Enochian and others, I find the system of the Sigillum Dei both fascinating and incredibly powerful. Study it, rear it apart, rebuild it, understand it, and by all means use it. The future of the Sigillum Dei is yours to explore and shape.

wont, and I said

[M] Doubt not: I am he which rejoices in him that rejoices in the fortitude and strength of God. [D] Is this form, for the Great

Seal, perfect?

[M] The form is true and perfect. Thou shalt swear by the Living God, the strength of his Mercy and his Medicinal virtue poured into man's soul, never to disclose these Mysteries.

[D] If no man by no means shall perceive anything hereof, by me, I would think that I should not do well. [M] Nothing is cut from the Church of God. Thee in his saints are blessed for ever. \We separate thee from defiled and wicked persons. We move thee to God. [D] I voq

Blessed art thou among the Saints, and blessed are you both.

He spoke that to us,lest we might doubt of his last speeches to Semiel.e

as

being spoken

Semiel stood up and flaming fire came out of his mouth, and then he said follows:

as

[S] Mighty Lord, what would thou with theThbles?

[M] It

is the

will of God: thou fetch them hither.

[S] I am his Thbles. Behold these are his tables. Lo, where they are.

[D] There came in 40 White Creatures all in white silk, long robes, and they like children; and all they falling on their knees said "Thou only art Holy among the highest, O God. Thy Name be blessed forever." Michael stood up out of his chair and by and by all his legs seemed to be like two great pillars of brass, and he as high as half way to the heaven. Any by and by his sword was all on fire and he stroke or drew his sword over all their 40 heads. The Earth quaked, and the 40 fell down, and Michael called Semiel with a thundering voice and said, "Declare the Mysteries of the Living God, our God, of one that liveth forever." [S] I am ready. Semiel: forte significant Nomen meam Deus: Ita quod tabulae iste sunt Nomen Dei vel nomina Divina.ro

[D]

[D] Michael stroke over them with his sword again and they all fell down, and Uriel also ... knees. And commonly at the striking with his sword flaming like lightning did flash with all.

[M] Note: here is a Mystery. 9. 10.

[M] Orate invicem." [D] Hereupon we prayed

a psalm,

my scryer saying one verse and I the other,

etc.

[M] Omnia data sunt

a Deo.'3

[D]Then came in one having a round tablet in his forehead and a little "o" in his forehead and 22 over it.

[M] Et non est finis in illo. Benedictus

es

tu Deus."

[D] And then that shower vanished away. He flew up like a round rainbow knit together at the ends. [M] Angeli a nomine tuo procident Domine. Tu

es

primus, O Halleluyah.25

[D] One stood up and the rest fell down, and out of his mouth that stood came a sword: and the point, a triangle, and in the middle of it a small "a," thus, of pure gold graven very deep. "Et numerus tuus vivit in caeterisr" 26 said this shower.The number was 22t' over the "a." This shower went away with

a great

lightning covering all of the world.

[M] Nomen illius est nobiscum.2s [D] He stroke again with his sword over them. Then stood one up who upon his garment had an "nr" and he turned about and on his back were very many (ens) "n." 22. "Pray in turn." 23."A11things are given by God." 24."And there is no end in him. Blessed are you, God." 25. "Tl:'e angels fall down at your name, o Lord.You are first, O Hallalujah." 26. "And your number lives in the others."

27.Tt'e corrected 20 is written above it. 28. "His name is with us."

This shower seemed to power himself away like a flood of blood and his garment flew upward.

[M] Non

est

illi numerus. Omnia pereunt

a facie

Dei et a facie Terra."

[D] Then stepped one forth and like a water running round about him and he cried miserably, "O benedictum nomen tuam, Domine. Numeris perijt cum illis."3u A little "o" with 18 over it appeared. This shower seemed to vanish away and to cause a great water remain over all.

[M] Lux manet in tenebris. Gloriosum

est Nomen

tuum."

[D] Then stepped one forth from the rest, who fell down,

as thefu manner

was.

NOTE: All the Companies of these 40 stood five together and five togerher, and so in eight companies each of five. [D] This was a very white one.The upper parts of his throat seemed open and there seemed to come out of it fire, in very many and diverse colors. He said, .. l8'- lrlnus sum.-'

[M] Benedictum sit Nomen

El.3e

[D] Then in the middle of the fires or smoke seemed an "l," thrice placed on a bloody cross and over the "lr" the number 26.

This shower seemed to have three men's heads and to vanish away in a mist with a thunder. 35. "He has no number. A1l things pass away from the face of God and from the face of the

earth." 36. "O blessed is your name, o Lord.The number passed away with those ones." 37. "The light remains in the darkness.Your name is glorious." 38.

"I

am threefold."

39. "May the name El be blessed."

There arose a mist and a horrible thunder.

[M] It

is done.

[D] Then of the three 6 before noted with his finger he put our rhe rwo

lowermost and said "Iste est numerus suas." e0 And Michael did put his finger into the trumpet's end and pulled forth a round plate of gold whereon was the figure of "i" with many circles about it and saidr "Omnia unum est."er

The form of the world which appeared

before

vanished away and Semiel went away.

And Michael came and sat in his chair again and his brazen legs were gone and upon our pausing he said:

[M] Go forward. Do you know whar you

have

already written?

Laudate Dominum in Sanctus eius.n'

Note:The circumference (which is done) contains 7 names. 7 names contain 7 angels. Every letter contains 7 Angels. The numbers are applied to rhe letters. \When thou dost know the 7 names thou shall undersrand the 7 angels. The number of 4 pertaining to the firstT is a number significative: signiSring to what place thou shalt next apply thy eye and being placed above, it shows removing toward the right hand, taking the figure for the number of the place applyable to the next letter to be taken. The under number is significative, declaring to what place thou shalt apply the next letter in the circumference toward the left hand which you must read until it light upon a letter without number, not signit'ing. This is the whole. So shalt thou find the 7 principal Names known with us and applyable to thy practice. 90. "This is his number." 91. "411 things are one." 92. "Praise the Lord in his sanctuarv."

[D] I have read in Cabala of the name of God of 42letters, but not yer of any of 40 letters. That of 42letters is this: nrr)rrf

:'7nN :'TnNf

:

;trr)r, : Dr;)t rar2;r : ntr : D';llN :'it: n';t)N:tN :

Vide Galantium.n' "Pater Deus, Filius Deus, Spiritus Sanctus Deus.Tres in uno et unus in tribus, velTrinitas in unitate, et unitas inTrinitate."e5

Or this:

'7nN:;'l'tlN:ON:r):85;llN:;"lt )tt:N):)fN:N):tt'7i7;"1:n't''t't :)N:l::)N:tN

Which in Latin is "Pater Deus Filius Deus et spiritus sanctus. Deus attamen non tres Dij sed unus Deus."ou

And as this is of God, Unity in Trinity, so of Christ only (the second person of the Divine Trinity) the Cabalisrs have a name explained of 42 letters on this manner: '7nN:;'1tnlr:DlN;'1r:)N;"i:]l:lnN:D'TN:"'trrf;']1:i't)lrtD;'t:rr!l;"1:"'tnNf

That is in Latin "Sicut anima rationalis, et caror homo unus, ita Deus. Deus et homo Messias unus."nt

I

am not good in the Hebrew tongue but you know my meaning.

[M] The letters being so taken out being a name and a number doth certifu the old rule of 42 letters when you resrore them in again. Note: Out of this Circle shall no crearure pass thar enters if it be made upon the earth. My meaning is if he be defiled.This shalt rhou prove to be a mystery unknown to man. Beasts, birds, fowl and fish do all reverence to it. In this they were all created. In this is all things contained. In time thou shalt find it 94. Marginal note. "See Galatinus."

95. "God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.Three in one and one in three, or Trinity in unity and unity in Trinity." 96. "God the Father, God the Son, and the holy spirit. But still God is not three Gods but one

God." 97. "Just as the rational soul and the flesh are one man, so is God. God and the man the Messiah are one."

After every of the 7 letters showed, he did put them up in his bosom as soon as he had showed them fully. The plates whereon these letters were showed have the form of the segment of a circle, thus, and seemed to be of pure gold. When the 7 letters were placed, he said: "Omnia unum est."'nt Then he pulled all the 7 plates out of his bosom and Uriel kneeled down before him. Then the plates did seem to have two wings (each of them) and to fly up to heaven under the Canopy. After this, one of the 7 baskets (that which is in the east) came to Michael and he said:

[M]

Seal this. For this was and is forever.

[D] Then he stood again on his legs like brazen pillars and said:

tM] O how mighty is the name of God which reigns in the heavens, O God of the faithful, for thou reign for ever.

[D] He opened the basket and there came

a great

fire out of it.

[M] Divide the 7 parts of the circle next unto that which thou hast done, every one into 7.

Note (for the time will be long): Seven rest in 7: and the 7 live by 7: the 7 govern the 7: and by 7 all Government is. Blessed be he, yea, blessed be the Lord, praised be our God. His Name be magnified. All honor and Glory be unto him now and for ever. Amen.

[D] Then he took out of the fire in the basket a white fowl like a pigeon. That fowl had a Z upon the first of 7 feathers which were on his breast. That first feather was on the left side.

[M] Note there is a mystery in the seven, which are the 7 governing the which govern the earth. Halleluyah. 107. "A11 things are one."

I

thought my scryer had misheard this word "imitaverunt" for "Imitati t'n suntr" and Michael smiled and seemed to laugh and said, "Non curat numerum Lupusr" tno and further he said, "Ne minimam detrahet a virtuter virtutem."

These names bring forth 7 angels.The 7 Angels and Governors in the heavens next unto us, which stand always before the face of God. Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus est ille Deus noster.tnt

Every letter of the Angels' names brings forth 7 daughters. Every daughter brings forth her daughter, which is 7. Every daughter, her daughter brings forth a son. Every son in him left is 7. Every son hath his son, and his son is 7.

Let us praise the God of seven which was and is and shall live forever. Vox Domini in Fortitudine. Vox Domini in Decore. Vox Domini revelat secreta. In templo eius, laudemus nomen eius El. Halleluyah.tns See

if thou canst now understand this table.

The daughters proceed from the angle on the right hand, cleaving the middle, where their generation ceases. The sons from the left hand to the right to the middle, so proceeding where their number ends in one center. The rest, thou may (by this note) understand.

[D] Note this manner of center accounted.ree [D] Then, Michael, he stroke over us with his sword and the flame of fire issued out.

[M] Look to the corner on the right hand, being the uppermost where thou shalt find 8.

197. "Holy, Holy, Holy is he our God."

l98. "The voice of the Lord in Courage.The voice of the Lord in Beaury.The voice of the Lord reveals secrets. In his temple, let us praise his name El. Halleluyah." 199. Marginal note.

The 30 by E in the second place in the upper right corner serves not in rhe consideration of the first daughters but for another purpose. The 26 by I serves for another purpose, but not for this daughter's daughter.

The 21 is E and 8 with the prick under it is l, which together makes "Elr" or they compound as it were one letter, "E1." The names in the great seal must follow the orthography of this Table. Virtus vobiscum est. Orate.2ro [D] !7e prayed. Then there appeared SAAI (2llB) M (El). Here is an E comprehended in L.

[U] Read now the table. Angeli Lucis Dei nostri. Et posuit medio illorum."l

In the table are the names of 7 Angels.The first, Zabathiel, beginning in the left uppermost corner taking the corner letter first and then that on the right hand above; and then that under the first and then the third from the fourth in the upper row; and then cornerwise down toward the left hand; and then to the fourth letter from the first in the upper row where there is I with 2ll8, which makes "e1." So have you Zabatlrriel. Go forward.

[D] So I find next Zedekieil.

And these letters should be equally distant, and should surround the circle with that series which was named before, and in this way the great name of the Lord, the "Shemhamphorasch" of seventy-two letters, will be completed. lWhen this is done, in the middle of the circles, namely in the center, make one pentagram of this sort *', in the middle of which should be the sign "tau" of this sort: T, and above this sign write the name of God "El" and below another name of God, namely "Elyr" in this way.

Then, below the upper angle of the pentagram, write these two letters: "lr" "xr" and below the other angle on the right, these two: "ar" "lr" and in the other after that, these two: "lr" "ar" and in the other after that: "lr" "cr" and in the other after that: "Llr" "m." Then, around the pentagram, make one heptagon, of which the upper side after its middle should touch the upper angle of the pentagram, where "1," "xr" was written. And on the same side of the heptagon write this name of the holy angel, which is Casziel [Cassiel], and on the other side on the right, this name of another holy angel, which is Satquiel [Tzadkiel], then in the other, Samael, and in the other) Raphael, after that Anael, after that Michael, after that Gabriel, and in this way the seven sides of the heptagon will be filled. Then around this aforementioned heptagon, make another heptagon not as the first was made but in this way, so that one side of this will intersect the next side of the same one. Then, make another heptagon such as the first one was) whose seven angles should touch the seven angles of the second heptagon, which appears to be double. This heptagon, however, should be enclosed under the aforementioned second one. One side of the second heptagon will proceed by going over and another by going under, but the side following the first angle will proceed by going under, and those which follow will be one or the other in the series of going over and going under. Then, in every angle of the second heptagon, one cross should be painted. Then, in that side of the second heptagon which crosses from the farthest angle of the same to the second angle of the same, on the same side which is above Casziel, the syllables of a certain holy name of God should be written.

And this syllable "alg" in that place of the same side, which is between the side intersecting itself and the fourth cross. But be careful that the conjunction should be written in this way: [stylized

A] with the inscription intersectingJ on account of the fear of God, which will. Then, on that side of the same heptagon reaching from the fourth cross to the sixth, should be written this other holy name of God: "IJeham." In this way, so that this syllable "ue" is written in that place of the same side, which is above the first syllable of "Anael," and this letter "h" above the separates an evil

last syllable.

And this syllable "am" in that place of the same side, which is between the side intersecting itself and the sixth cross. Then, on that side which reaches from the sixth angle of the same second heptagon to the first angle, should be written this other holy name of God "Yalgal." In this way, so that this letter "y" is written in that place of the same side, which is above the first syllable of "Gabriel." And this syllable "al" above the last, and this syllable "gal" in that place of the same side which is between the side intersecting itself and the first cross. Then, in the middle of the first side and the third heptagon, on the right should be written "vos" and on the following side of the same third heptagon, on the right this name "Duynas."

Then, in that little space which is enclosed between the first angle of the second heptagon and the second angle of the same and the first side of the third heptagon and the part of the circle touching those angles, should be painted one cross in the middle, that is to say, of that space.

"That you, Lord, through the annunciation, conceptionr" and the rest, "See fit to bless and consecrate this, your most hallowed name and sigil. "That through it, with you as intermediary, I or such person N may be able to conquer the heavenly powers, airy and earthly, with the infernal ones, to subdue, to invoke, to transmute, to conjure, to control, to raise up, to gather together, to disperse, to bind, and to render them harmlessl "to calm men, and from them to pleasantly have one's requests to pacifit enemies, to separate the pacified, to keep the healthy in health or to make them sick, and to cure the sick. "To guard good men from evil ones, and to distinguish and know them, to escape every bodily danger, to make informers quiet in satisfaction, to gain victory in all things. "To destroy bodily sins and to drive away, conquer and avoid spiritual sins, to increase wealth in goods, and on the day of judgment, to appear on your right together with your holy and chosen ones, be able to know your majesty."

And then, he should set it outside his house at night under the clear sky. Then you should have new gloves made without whitening, in which no one ever has placed his hand, in which the sigil should be sealed. And in this way this most sacred sigil will be completed, of which the first heptagon designates the seven orders, the second designates the seven double junctures, the third designates the seven sacraments.

represented as both omiuon arrd omega. Despite the inclination to include the

suitably apocalyptic Alpha-omega combination, we remove the final occurrence to arrive at the same number of Enochian letters. we must also identifu a subtle case of mistaken identity between the letter Xi and the letter Chi in order to align the two characrer sets fully. W'hile their characters differ considerably, the Chihaving a more Anglo-centric "X" shape, I believe there was an accidental rearrangement of the two such that the letter Chi was moved into the position of the letter Xi. This arrangement is shown below, with the letter Chi in the position of Xi, represented (as it should be) by the Greek characrer resembling the English letter "X." CnanacrBR

The teachings of the now-ubiquitous Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn also assigned a sequence of numbers to the letters of the Enochian alphabet. The number nine is conspicuous by its absence, its omission occasioned by the lack of an Enochian equivalent of the Greek letter theta. Whether S. L. MacGregor Mathers and his brethren in the Order used the same logical process as outlined here to determine the numerical attributes of the Enochian alphabet is of course unknown. Naturally the forgoing analysis will be rejected by those who persist in adhering to the notion that the Enochian alphabet was received by direct angelic communication. However, given Dee's acknowledged use of the Greek language to encode his personal writings, and that the Enochian alphabet itself is easily reconstructed by transliterating across a somewhat lenient intersection of English and Greek, it must be said that the premise of an angelic origin for the language appears truly unlikely.
