PostSubject: Enochian   Fri Jul 06, 2007 6:04 pm

Not sure if this would fall under religion or magical aspects. One of the more interesting ones is an aspect concocted by John Dee, one oriented from angels.

Enochian
From Wikipedia

This article is about the Angelical Language recorded in the journals of Dr. John Dee. For Dee's overall system of Angel Magic, see Enochian Magic. For other examples of divine or angelic languages, see Divine language.
Enochian is a name often applied to an occult or angelic language recorded in the private journals of Dr. John Dee and his seer Edward Kelley in the late 16th century. The men claimed that it was revealed to them by angels, while some contemporary scholars of magick consider it a constructed language.

Applying the term "Enochian" to the language is a modern convention - not found in Dee's journals. Dee referred to the language as "Angelical", the "Celestial Speech", the "Language of Angels", the "First Language of God-Christ" and the "Holy Language". He sometimes referred to its alphabet as "Adamical" because (according to Dee's Angels) it was used by Adam in Paradise to name all things. Dee also recorded that the Patriarch Enoch had been the last human (before Dee and Kelley) to know the language - thus prompting later scholars to refer to the language and Dee's entire magickal system as "Enochian."

Dee's Angelical
Dee began to allude to his search for knowledge through the angels in 1581 when he mentioned in his personal journals that God had sent "good angels" to communicate directly with his prophets. Therefore, with the help of the seer Edward Kelley, Dee set out to establish contact with his own angels.

According to Dee's journals (later published as "The Five Books of Mystery" and "A True and Faithful Relation..."), Angelical was supposed to have been the language God used to create the world, and then used by Adam to speak with God and Angels and to name all things in existence. Adam then lost the language upon his Fall from Paradise, and constructed a form of proto-Hebrew based upon his vague memory of Angelical. This proto-Hebrew, then, was the universal human language until the time of the Confusion of Tongues at the Tower of Babel. After this, all the various human languages were developed, including an even more modified Hebrew (which we know as "Biblical Hebrew"). From the time of Adam to the time of Dee and Kelley, Angelical was hidden from humans with the single exception of the patriarch Enoch - who recorded the "Book of Loagaeth" (Speech From God) for humanity, but the book was lost in the Deluge of Noah.

Most of the vocabulary is found in nineteen symbolic poems, called "Keys" or Angelical "Callings." Dee was intended to use these Keys to open the "49 Gates of Wisdom/Understanding" represented by the 49 Tables (magickal word-squares) in the Book of Loagaeth-

"I am therefore to instruct and inform you, according to your Doctrine delivered, which is contained in 49 Tables. In 49 voices, or callings: which are the Natural Keys to open those, not 49 but 48 (for one is not to be opened) Gates of Understanding, whereby you shall have knowledge to move every Gate…" (-The Angel Nalvage, A True and Faithful Relation…, p. 77)
"But you shall understand that these 19 Calls are the Calls, or entrances into the knowledge of the mystical Tables. Every Table containing one whole leaf, whereunto you need no other circumstances." [-The Angel Illemese, A True and Faithful Relation…, p. 199)
Dozens of further words are found hidden throughout Dee's journals, and thousands of undefined words are contained in the Book of Loagaeth itself. Due to some stylistic differences, the words in Loagaeth and those in the Keys may represent two different "dialects" of the language.
