John Deeの年表

ジョン・ディーとケリーについては後で情報が必要なため、投稿。

1992/1/2, posted by Jacques Guy quoting Donald Laycock's note.

"According to the horoscope he later cast himself, John Dee was born at Mortlake on the morning of 13 July, 1527, under the sign of Cancer, with Sagittarius in ascendent....
He graduated Master of Arts from Cambridge in 1548, and went abroad to study further at Louvain. Later he gave lectures at the University of Paris... It is not known just when he began to seek or achieve efective communications with the beings he regarded as angles, but it was probably not before 1581. From about March of that year, as we learn from his Private Diary, he was troubled by odd dreams, and strange knockings in the night... by October of that year Dee had found a medium, one Barnabas Saul, who, using as a crystal a stone given Dee by a 'friend', reported to Dee the words of the angel Annael and Michael -- and who later denied seeing any spirits at all, for fear of prosecution for conjuring. But Dee was dissatisfied with Saul as a medium, and dismissed him...

... there appeared at his house in Mortlake on 8 March 1582 a man calling himself Edward Talbot, afterwards to be known by his true name of Edward Kelley.
Kelley was about twenty-seven years old at the time.... He was not uneducated;
he had been an undergraduate at Oxford, but was apparently dismissed. He spoke Latin well enough to travel in Europe, and converse with Dee's Continental friends; he makes frequent grammatical mistakes, but of his general intelligence there is no doubt.... on 10 March that year Dee was giving the new medium a trial -- with results so successful that there began on that day a strange and close association between the two men that was to last for some seven years...
on 26 March 1582, Edward Kelley produced the first material concerning the 'angelicall language.' [Enochian].... The wife-swapping episode took place, in spite if the attempts of some biographers of Dee to suggest that it did not.
In the original manuscripts there is a section, heavily erased and barely legible, recording the seance of 23 May 1587 -- the morning after the wife-swapping. The spirits ask Kelley:'Was thy brother's wife [Jane Dee] obedient and humble unto thee?' -- and Kelley replies:'She was.' Dee returns the same answer concerning Joanna Kelley.
Dee's association with Kelley, and apparently also with the Enochian angles, ended shortly after this episode -- perhaps the tensions in that household of two British couples in Bohemia were becoming too much to bear, and Kelley set himself up as an alchemist in a separate establishment.
Nevertheless, the Dees did not leave for England until March 1589, arriving there in December of that year. Kelley stayed on at the court of Emperor Rudolph in Prague, and died there in 1595 -- under obscure conditions. (The usual story is that he was imprisoned for failing to produce alchemical gold, and fell from a tower when trying to escape.)"
