Queen Elizabeth’s Magician – John Dee

Queen Elizabeth's Magician - John Dee

Queen Elizabeth’s Magician – John Dee is a 2002 television show produced by the UK’s Channel 4 for their Masters of Darkness series. The show tells incredible story of Dee’s life, who was willing to risk everything for pursuit of knowledge – including the sought after secret formula to the Philosopher’s Stone! The program may not reveal anything new for serious Dee students, however, the show does serve as a good introduction. Andrew Gough describes the man in a recent New Dawn magazine article, “Doctor John Dee (1527-1609) remains one of London’s most intriguing historical figures. Dee was a renaissance man; an occultist, mathematician, astronomer, astrologer and navigator. In addition to his prodigious skills, Dee was a confidant of Queen Elizabeth I, who guided the nation through one of its most challenging eras, partly based upon Dee’s unique blend of alchemy, divination and Hermetic philosophy. In fact, the Queen had so much faith in Dee’s calculations she had him choose her coronation date.”
