The Enochian alphabet, and the language written with it, were allegedly transmitted to Court Astrologer and Magician, Dr. John Dee (1527-1608) and his associate, Sir Edward Kelly (1555-1597) by entities they referred to as angels. The characters shown comprise the proper alphabet for the Enochian Tablets. The Enochian language is considered the only correct and valid language for the Enochian Calls or Keys which are used to invoke the angels, therefore, it is a fundamental in the practice of true Enochian Magic.
The Enochian alphabet forms the basis for the magical text and language philosopher and mathematician John Dee reportedly received from angel through well-known medium Edward Kelley late in the sixteenth century of our Common Era. Dee wrote that the letters represented the order of man's creation. Although Dee referred to the alphabet in his writings as "Adamic," the Enochian alphabet was eventually named for the Biblical prophet Enoch.
The Enochian language formed the foundation for a rudimentary theurgical system begun by Dee, but never completed. Eventually, the Enochian alphabet and language became the basis of the Golden Dawn's magical system until abandoned by Paul Case, due to his belief in the inherent danger of the system.
The Enochian alphabet consists of twenty-one letters, and the language, like Hebrew and other angelic alphabets, is written right to left. Some letters represent multiple sounds, including some overlap.
