John Dee – Scientist or Sorcerer?

This April, as part of Cityread London’s 2017 celebration of books I’ll be speaking about John Dee, Elizabeth I’s astrologer, and a character in this year’s featured novel “Prophecy” by S.J. Parris. 

In the Footsteps of Queen Elizabeth’s Astrologer
There is a hidden history of Elizabethan England. Astrology, magic and alchemy, all practices far from mainstream science today were believed and trusted by princes and politicians. In the 1580s one man would call upon these ancient arts to guide Elizabeth I through some of the most momentous events of her reign. His name was John Dee and this illustrated talk will be a glimpse into his world of secrets and sorcery.
