The Angelical language channeled by alchemist Edward Kelley and recorded by royal astrologer John Dee has mystified magicians, linguists, historians, and cryptographers for generations. It's even rumoured that "Angelical" may be an encryption method of some kind, unbroken to this day. This fascinating, in-depth analysis reveals the truth behind the saga of two Renaissance wizards who spoke with angels and received instruction in the Celestial Tongue. Aaron Leitch's long-awaited masterwork reveals in plain language-for the first time ever-how the angelical language was received, for what it was intended, and how to use it properly, providing a lively historical context for the practical application in Volume II.
