Have been reading the ‘True and faithful…’ more commonly known as Dee’s spiritual diaries. It is interesting that many of the ‘spirituall creatures’ do not resemble ‘angels’ nor seem particularly ‘angelic’. There are obvious candidates like Raphael and Gabriel, but the very first, or at least earliest in the book, seems much more like a fairy. I am speaking of Madimi, the spirit with which they spoke the most frequently and consistently. Her description is that of a young child of 9 years old (although it is a little vague whether this is age or size), and with a dress that shimmers between green and red. Also, she is quite playful and not a little malicious. She also talks of having 6 sisters (there are a number of spells from this era that attempted to summon the 7 fairy sisters or sibyls, for example Scot’s Discoverie of Witchcraft, the Grimoire of Arthur Gauntlet). She also speaks of her mother having a house full of babes, but these are not her sisters(the abduction of human children into Faerie, being quite commonplace). Also much of her advice seems to end badly for Dr. Dee and Mr. Kelley. In the Grimoire of Arthur Gauntlet(d.1636) there is much about scrying, angelic conversation, and fairies. Also he utilized a female scryer, and the female scryer who taught scrying to ‘his’ scryer, summoned the ‘regina pigmeorum’-Queen of Fairies to her shew-stone.
