Jason Louv returns to the IAH podcast as our first three time guest! Jason's depth of expertise and eloquence shifts it's attention to that of his new book "John Dee and the Empire of Angels - Enochian Magick and the Occult Roots of the Modern World." John Dee was one of the most fascinating characters of the middle ages. His role as Queen Elizabeth I’s court advisor and astrologer, was the foremost scientific genius of the 16th century. Laying the foundation for modern science, he actively promoted mathematics and astronomy as well as made advances in navigation and optics that helped elevate England to the foremost imperial power in the world. Our conversation dives into many of the core topics this book uncovers and of course takes a few spontaneous turns! If you don't know who John Dee was, pay attention, your mind will be blown.
