In this fascinating book -- the first full-length biography of Dee based on primary historical sources -- Glyn Parry explores Deeʹs vast array of political, magical, and scientific writings and finds that they cast significant new light on policy struggles in the Elizabethan court, conservative attacks on magic, and Europe's religious wars. John Dee was more than just a fringe magus, Parry shows: he was a major figure of the Reformation and Renaissance. -- Jacket."@en
