THE HIEROGLYPHIC MONAD

by Dr. JOHN DEE



The renowned British alchemist and mathematician Dr. John Dee wrote this treatise in thirteen days in 1564. The essay explains his discovery of the monad (unity) underlying the universe as expressed in a hieroglyph or symbol. Dee called this "Hieroglyphic Monad," a "magical parable" based on the Doctrine of Correspondences, which lies at the heart of alchemy. Through careful meditation and study of the glyph, he promised, its secrets may be slowly revealed. This version was translated from the Latin by J.W. Hamilton-Jones in 1947.
