1984 JOHN DEE THE WORLD OF AN ELIZABETHAN MAGUS
Peter J French
243 Pages

John Dee was Renaissance England's first Hermetic Magus, a philosopher-magician. He was also a respected practical scientist, an immensely learned man who investigated all areas of knowledge. In this fine biography, Peter French shows that not only magic and science, but geography, antiquarianism, theology, and the fine arts, were fields in which Dee was deeply involved.

Through his teaching, writing, and friendships with many of the most important figures of the age, Dee was at the centre of great affairs and had a profound influence on major developments in sixteenth-century England. Peter French places this extraordinary individual within his proper historical context, describing the whole world of Renaissance science, Platonism, and Hermetic magic.
