John Dee The latter, of course, was used and elaborated on by the founders of the Golden Dawn, and has come to be known as Enochian magic. While very similar to De Heptarchia Mystica, to my knowledge this text has never been published or studied at length.
Nevertheless, I believe it has been worth the effort of editing, as it contains some valuable material not found elsewhere. Of special interest are the details it fills in from the lost beginning of Quartus Liber Mysteriorum, which provide insight into the mysterious Covenant Table, the ornate chair, and the globe used thereafter.
It also assigns planets to the Filij lucis "sons of light" and the Filij filiorum "sons of the sons".

He devoted much time and effort in the last thirty years or so of his life to attempting to commune with angels in order to learn the universal language of creation. A student of the Renaissance Neo-Platonism of Marsilio Ficino, Dee did not draw distinctions between his mathematical research and his investigations into Hermetic magic and divination, instead considering both ventures to constitute different facets of the same quest: the search for a transcendent understanding of the divine forms which underlie the visible world.
He served as an occasional adviser and tutor to Elizabeth I and nurtured relationships with her two leading ministers, Francis Walsingham and William Cecil. In his lifetime Dee amassed the largest library in England and one of the largest in Europe.
