John Dee

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.

Correction- It was the Angel Madimi that urged Kelley to tell Dee that they must share wives, not the Angel Uriel. I mixed them up. Hopefully this shouldn’t matter too much seeing as how this whole situation was most likely a complete invention of naughty Kelley.
