The Queen’s Conjuror by Benjamin Wooley


John Dee, the great English Renaissance man, was a founding father of British mathematics.

Set to be one of the greatest scientists of his generation, his reputation was tarnished by his dabbling in the occult and spurious claims of communication with angels.

Dee claimed he was able to interpret ancient sacred texts, harness the power of alchemical powers and perform miracles with machines.

A fascinating read for fans of the esoteric.
