PREFACE. 




HAT is here pre(ented unto thee ( Chriftian Reader) be= 
in^ a True and pAithful Relation ^ O'c. CascheTidebearech, and 
will be further cleared by this Preface) though by the carriage 
of it, in fomc relpeds, and by the Nature of it too, it might 
be deemed and termed, /^ Work of Varknejfe : Yrf it is no o- 
ther then what with great tendcrneife and circumfpedlion, 
was tendered to men of highelT: Dignity in Europe , Kings and Princes , and 
by all ( Ewg/W excepted) liftned unto for a while with good refped:. By fome 
gladly embraced and entertained for along time ; the Fame whereof being car- 
ryed unto ^o;«^,it made the Pope to beftir himlelf, not knowing what the event 
of it might be, and how much it might concern him. And indeed, filled all 
men, Learned and Unlearned in moft places with great wonder and aftonifh- 
mcnt : all which things will be (hewed and made good (to the utmoft of 
what we have laid) in the Contents of this^book, by unqueftionable Records 
and evidences. And therefore I make no queftion but there will be men e- 
nough found in the world whole curiofity will lead them to Read what I think 
it not to beparahell'din that I\tnd by any book that hath heenjet out in any Age to read : I 
fay, though it be to no other end then to fatisfie their cUrio/ity. But whatfbever 
other men, according to their leveral inclinations, may propole to themfelvcs 
in the reading of it , yet I may and muft here profcfle in the nrft place, in Truth 
and Sincerity, that the end that I propofe to my felf ( fo far as I have contri- 
buted to the Pubhftiing of the Work) is not tolatisfiecuriofity,but to do good, 
and promote Religion. When we were firft acquainted with the Book, and 
were offered the reading of it, having but lately been converlant iri aSubjedtof 
much Affinity ; to w?t, o^ MJiaken Injpiration 3.nd Tojfe/sion ^ through ignorance 
of Natural caules (which labour of ours, as it was ouraime at the firft in pub- 
lifhing of it, to do good, fo we have had good reafon fince to believe, that We 
did not altogether miffeof whai weaimedat)we could not but gladly accept of it. 
And as we gladly accepted , fo we read unto the end with equal eagernefle and 
Alacrity : Which when we had done, truly it was our Opiniort , That the 
Publifhing of it could not but be very Seafonable and Ufeful, asagainft Jihei/ls 
at all times, fo in thele Times efpecially, when the Spirit of Error and Illufi- 
on, not in moMAnabajftiJi s only, even of the worft kind that former Ages have 
known ancf abhorred, doth fo much prevail, but in many alfb , who though 
they difclaim and deteft openlv (and heartily too, I hope, moft of them) the 
fruiiis andelfed:s that fuch caules have produced in others, yet ground them- 
selves nevertheleile upon the lame principles of Suppofed Infpiration and irnma- 
ginary %eViliitions ,• and upon that account deem themfelves, if not the Only, yet 
much better Chriftians then others. And I was much Confirmed in this Judg-' 
inent when I was told (as indeed 1 was, at the firft, by them that knew very 
Weil) that the ^o^ Reverend, Pious and Learned JirchbiJ]?op of ^rmagh^ lately 

. _ „ A ' ^ " deceaf- 



The T'B.eF AQS. 



deceafed, upon reading of the faid book, before his death, had declared him- 
felf to the fame purpole, and wijhed it 'fnuted. But becaufe it is very poffible, 
that every Reader will not at the firft be lb well able of himfelf to make that 
goodufe by good and Rational Inferences and Obfervations of this fad Story 
as is aimed at, my chiefeft aim in this Preface is to help fuch. And becaufe it is 
not lefle probable that this Licentious Age will afford very many, who with the 
Saduces oi old ( that is, Jewifh Epicures} believe no 5/?/m, or Angel, orRefur- 
redion ,• who therefore being prepolTefled with prejudice when they hear of fo' 
many Spirits as are here mentioned, and fo many ftrange Apparitions, infeveral 
Kinds, will not only fling back themfelves, but will be ready to laugh at any 
other that give any credit to inch things. Although I will not take upon me to 
convert anybyReafon that are engaged into fuch an opinion by a wicked lifej 
that is, Unjuit pradifes. Luxurious lewd courfes,open profanenefife, under the 
name of Wit and Galantry, and the like , becaufe, I think, it is veryjuftwitH 
God to leave fuch to the error and blindnelTc of their Judgments ,- lb that with,-, 
out a Miracle there can be little hopes of fuch. Yet I fhall hope that fuch as aj-^ 
Rational men, fober in their Lives and Converfations , fuch as I have known 
my felf; yea, 'men of excellent parts in other things, men that are both willing 
to hear and able to confider : that fuch, I fay, may receive fome latisfadion by. 
what I (hall fay and propofeto their Ingenuous confideration in this matter. Were 
we to araue the cafe by Scripture, the bufineffe would foonbe at an end ; there 
being no one Controverted point, among men, that I know of, that can receive 
a more Ample, Full, Clear and fpeedy determination, then this bulinefs of Spi- 
rifi, and Wtuhes^ and Apparitions may, if the Word of God might be judge. But 
I will iuppofe that 1 have to do with fuch, who though they do not altogether 
deny the Word of God, yet will not eafily , however, admit >of any thing that 
they 'think contrary to Reafon , or at leaft not to be maintained by Realbn. I 
fhall therefore forbear all Scripture Proofs and feftimonies in this particular, 
and delire the Chriftian Reader ( who otherwife might juftly take offence) to 
take notice upon what ground it is that I forbear. 

But. though I will not ufe any Scripture for proof, yet by way of Application 
I hope I may be allowed to ufe fome Scripture words, which may duedus 
perchance to a good Method in the examination of this bullneffe. The Apoltle 
faith in a place, <p«.Vxo^7s/ 1*^*/ (ro^oJ, e;u»s«e>icrct:. : (profe/sin^them/ihes to he wife ^ they became 
fools) I fliall not enquire of whom, and upon what occafion it was fpoken : I 
draw no argument from it ; only becaule there is a fhew of great Wiiclom in 
this Opinion J and yet, ^s I conceive, as much of Error and falfhood (that is, 
Folly J as the word is often ufed) as in any other falfe opinion that is lelfe popular. 
I will frame my difcourfetothis iffue, firft, to enquire what it is that makes 
it fo popular and pluifiblc, among them efpccially that pretend to more then 
ordinary Wifdom^ and then fecondly, lay it open(as I amable)co the view in its 
right colours, that the Folly or falfhood of it may be difcernabie even to ordi- 
nary judgments. 

Fiji then, (as for them that deny Spirits ^ Sec.) we lay. The world is full of im- 
pofturc; to know this, to obferve it in all Trades, inall ProfelTions, in all ranks 
and degrees of men, is to know the world, and that is to be wife. Though we 
call zhem Jailers J yet they deierveto be thought the plainelldeaUng men of the 
world that fliew their tricks openly in the ftreets for money ; for they profefle 
what they are. They are the trueil; Juglers that do their feats (and they for mo-

ny toojttioft of them) under the Veil and Reputation of HolincfTc^Sandity, (or 
Saintfhip) Religion, Virtue, Juftice, Friendfhip ; fine words to catch men that 
are ofealie Belief, and thinks that everything that glillers muft needs be gold. 
Hence it is, that men that have had the Regutation of Wife men in the world ■■ 
have commended this unto us as greateft Wildom, Not Easily To Be- 
L I E V £■: Mw?*' ^ iiit^vY,sa [e.Tiriiv : «fT?* 7<tt?T* ^Sy (pftfSy Epicharmus got more credit for 
this one faying ( and hath done more good too, perchance) then many that 
have been the Authors of vaft Volumes. Now if thofe things that are expofed 
to fenfc, the proper Objedis of our Eyes andEares, be lyable to {omuchlm- 
pofture and Deceit, that the wifeft can fcarce know what to believe: How 
much more caution do we need in thofe things that are fo much above Senfe 
and in fome refpcds contrary to Senfe (and that is «S/)/>/ff) that we be not deceiv- 
ed ? If we confidertheNaturc of man, his Bodily frame, the AfFedionsofhis 
foul, the Faculties of his mind, we (hall have no occafion at all to wonder if 
moft men are apt to believe and to be cheated- But as no caufe to wonder, fo as 
little cauie to imitate : Felix qui rerum potuit cognofcere caufas ! ri^<t]o^oyU, a deftre of- 
or to grange things that may caufe amaztmentj is the proper affection of -the vulgar,that 
is, of moll men , which they bring into the world with them, ( it is theob- 
(ervationof the wileftof menthat have Written concerning the affairs and a<51:i- 
onsof men) and cannot be rid of but by wifdom, which is the happinefle of 
few : Etrandi^ non necefsitas tantum^ fed amor. Seneca fbmewhere fpeakingof the 
Nature of Man j There was a time when the world was much governed by 0- 
racles ; private men went unto them as unto God, Kings and Princes lent unto 
them to be advifed about greateft matters : and fo much faith was afcribcd unto 
them, generally , that the very word became a Proverb appliable unto thofe 
things, whereof no queftion can be made. Yet thofe very ancient Heathens , 
that tell us of thefc Oracles, tell us of their vanity; and though they fay nor. 
That all were falfe and counterfeit, yet whileft they acknowledgit of lbme,they 
give us juft occafion to fufpecft that it might have been found iis true of the reft 
alfb, had like care been taken to examine the truth of them alfo. 

Again, there was a time (and that time not many hundred years yet paft) 
when Miracles were the only difcourfe and delight of men: Ghoftsand Spi- 
rits were in every houle ; and fb prone were men to receive what was delive- 
red unto them in that kind, that Miracle-makers were much put to it , not 
to make their ftories probable, (for that was not ftood upon ) but to make 
them wonderful enough; infomuch that fome have been forced seetheiifeof.i<- 
to complain publickly of the credulity of the people, who yet them- *"""" '^^• 
felves tell us much more, I dare fay, then was ever true. As of Miracles, fo 
of Exorcifmes : How many Divels and Spirits have been driven out of men and 
women, fuppofed to be p^pJJ^d^ by Iblemn Exorcifmes, to the great wonder 
of the beholders, which afterwards upon further fearch and examination, have 
been convicted to have been nothing; but the artifices and fubtil contrivances of 
men ? Sentences and Judgments have palled upon fuch cheats when they have 
been difcovered in moft places of Europe, which have been publiOied. But 
they have done ftrange things though ( fome that were though: poffefTed) and 
things impoftible, to ordinary fenfe, to be done by Nature, It is very true,lome 
have : But they that know what ftrange things may be done to the amaze-

ment of all not acquainted with fuch myfteries, by long lifi and Cupme^ they 
will not eafily wonder (fo as to make a fupernatural thing of it) though they 
fee things, which , to their fight and of moft, cannot but feem very wonder- 
ful and almoft impoiTible. As for the bodily temper of man and of his ^rain^ 
it hath been fufficicntly by fome late books of that fubjea: ( Enthufia/me ) 
both by reafons from Nature, and by fund ry examples proved, that a very lit- 
tle diftemper ol the brain,fcarce difcernable unto any,but thofe that are well verfcd 
in theftudyof Natural caufes , is enough toreprefent Spirits, Angels and Di- 
vels, Sights and Stories of Heaven and Hell to the Fancy : by which fober kind 
of MadnelTe anddeliration, fo little underftood vulgarly, many have been, and 
are daily deceived j and from thefe things , through the ignorance of men , 
ftrant^e things fometimeshaveenfued, and the peace of Common- wcales hath 
fuffered not a little. 

Jnjlotk^ in his Meteors, tells of one thatalwayes faw (fo he thought,at leaft) 
another man's fhape before his eyes, and how they happened unto him naturally, 
he gives a reafon. Hyppocrates^ mpi araf9«r«<v^, ( a v^'-y fliuit Difcourlc, but full 
of excellent matter) fheweth how fome, both men and women, through Na- 
tural caufes, come to fancy to them felves that they fee j^^v^-f Divels and Spirits, 
and to be tormented in their Souls, even to the making away of themfelves by 
their own hands. The Author of the book, Ve Morbo Sacro, (very ancient too, 
bur notricrht HyppocrateSj as many are of opinion) hath excellent matter too,to 
the fame purpoie ; but I have not the book a- this time by me. Hyppocrates ^ 
(where before) fheweth how many in that cafe were gulled by the Priefts of 
thofe times, making them believe , That this happened to them through the 
anther of fome god. " They that are verftinthe 0/^«c/iiknow,Thatthereis a 
"way, through the help of ^lajfes th^Lt fhall not be feen, to make moving fha- 
* 'dows that Ihall appear like Ghofts, to the great terror of the ignorant behold- 
" er : and it is faid, That pretended Aftrologers and Fortune-tellers cheat many 
" by thofe fights. It is the opinion of fome Jewifh Rabbins , That what 
Ghofls or Souls are raifcd by ISjtcromancy^ they alwayes appear inverfocorp&re^ that 
is their head dowards and feet upwards. Though nothing is to be wondered 
at in Raboins, who (commonly) ate as full of ridiculous conceits as ever came 
into the head of any Bedlam: Yet my opinion is, " That the firfl ground of 
" this wild conceit was, fome appearance by the Species of an objed:, gathered 
"through a little ^/dj/e into a dark room. For fo indeed the objeds muftap- 
" pear mVerfo corpore if it be done in a high room, and the objeds from whence 
"the Spiecies are gathered be lower then the glafle through which theypafTe. And 
the reafon of it is very Demonftrable to the fight of any reafonable man. Cer- 
tainly ,by this fecret(which yet is no great (ecret,being commonly leen and pradif- 
ed among them that are any thing curious ) ftrange things may be done by a 
Cunning-man, to their great amazement that know not the caule. There 
would be no end if 1 fhould attempt to gather from feveral Authors what hath 
been invented by men, and what may be done by Art to cheat men in matters 
of thisnature. Letany man, thatisyetaftrangertoit, but read the Hfe of ^Vx- 
ander the falje frophet^ or Prognofticator , written by L«ad/7, and he Oiall lee no- 
table examples of fuccefl'eful Cheats and Impoflures, fcarce credible indeed, buc 
that the thing was yet then frelli and famous , and that all circumibni.es of

The T%EFJCE. 



Hiftory confirm the truth of the relation. And let him that reads it jnda^r 
what dull and dry fellows the Mountebank- Aftrologers, Proanoftjcators and 
Fortune-tellers, of thefe dayes are,.. to this Noble, Renowned Alexmviou Orily 
let him know that reads , that Lnckn vjis a profeft Atheift, and therefore np 
wonder if he find Epicurus fpokerl of with great refpedt, whom all Atheiil:s,and 
Atheiftically inclined are fo much obliged to honour. -Thi^-vvcj^ted, I th'ink 
the Story is very worthy to be known, and much more worthy to be read hyal\ 
men (confideringthe good ufe that may be made of it) then many books that are 
daily tranflated out of other languages, 

Butlaftly, If there were any fuch thing, really as Divelsand Spirits that u(e to 
appear unto men ; to whom lliould they (probably) fooner appear, then to fuch 
as daily call upon them, and devote their Souls and Bodies untothern by dread- 
ful Oaths and Imprecations ? And again, then to fuch, who through damnable 
curiofity have many times ufed the means ( the befl: they could find m books by 
Magical Circles, Chara(aers and Invocations) and yet never, neither the one nor 
the other faw any thing ? 

I have faidasmuch as I mean to lay (though fbmewhat perchance might be 
addedj to fhew theplaufibleneflfe of the opinion, in oppofition to vulgar appre-' 
henlions and capacities, whereby (as I conceive, for I have not wittingly o- 
mitted any thing that I thought material) it chiefly imitles it felf to wildom^ 
and more then ordinary prudence , which all men generally are ambitious of! 
Yet I would not have it thought that all men that hold this concluiion That 
there be no Spirits, ^c. go fo rationally to work, or can give this account or 
any other more rational and plaufible for what they hold. God knows there 
be many in the world, men of no learning, and mean capacities, who can fpeak 
as peremptorily as the beft, notbecaule they have conlidered of it, and under- 
ftand the grounds of either opinion, but becaufe they know, or have heard it 
is the opinion of fomc Learned, and they hope they fhall be thought learned 
too if they hold with them. Befides an ordinary (for Ibme have been learned)

ftrange things doth happen by Witches, Wizards and the like; and other fome 
to fatisfie their faith, others their realbn and curiofity, are put to it to enquire" 
of men by conference , and to fearch into books ancient and late, Sacred and 
Profane, and all little enough. A great eafe, I fay, for him, then, and upon

judge of a book that i never read ; I cannot fay that I ever faw it. Butbecaule 
I have heard fome men magnifie an Englifh book written of this fubjeit to 
prove that there be no Witches , I will impart unto the Reader that hath not 
obferved it, the judgment of one of the Learnedft men that ever England faw

our anTwers may have occafion to fay fomewhat to the fame purpofe ; not of 
that Author or his book, which hejudgeth, anything, but of the ground upon 
which he builded, which we fliall find to be the fame upon which others alio, 
that deny Spirits have gone upon. But we will go Methodically to work, anxl 
take every thincr in order, as we have propofed in the oDjed:ions. 

Firji, We faid, The world was full of Impofture. It is granted, of Im- 
poftorsandlmpoftures. But what then fhall the conclufionbe , That there- 
fore there is no truth in the world, or at leaft not co be attained unto by mortal 
man ? Truly, many books of old have been written to that effed:. Sp^*".: Um- 
/>/rfc«5 is yet extant, a very learned book it cannot be denied, and of excellent ufe 
for the underftanding of ancient Authors , Phylofophcrs efpecially. I could 
name fome Chriftians alfo, by profelTion, men of great learning that have gone 
very far that way. But this will not be granted by fome I am fure that are or 
have been thought great oppugners of the common opinion about Witches and 
Spirits • fome Phylicians I mean, and Naturalifts by their profelTion. But may 
not weargue as plaufibly againft that which they profefle, as they have doneor 
can do againft Spirits and Apparitions ? We would be loath to make fo long a 
digrelTion • we have had occafion elfewhere to fay fomewhat to this purpofe: 
and they that will be fo curious may fee what hath been written by Cornel. Jgrip- 
pa (who is very large upon this fiibjed:) about it, not to nstme any oth-rs. It is 
not yet a full twelvc-moneth , that a friend of mine, a Gentleman of quality, 
brought his Lady to London (fome 60 miles and upwards from his ordinary 
dwelling) to have the advice of Phyficians about his wife ( a very Virtuous and 
Religious Lady) troubled with a weak ftomack and ill digcftion , which cau^ 
ed gi ievous fymptoms. I think he had the advice of no lefle then a dozen firft 
andlaft : I am fiire he named unto me five or fix of thechiefefi: in Credit and 
practice that the Town aflFordeth. Not one of them did agree in their opinions, 
cither concerning the Caufe , or the means to be ufed for a Cure. So that the 
Gentleman went away more unfatisfied then he came. What he did I know 
not: I know what fome men would have inferred upon this. Yet I, for my 
part, for the benefit that I have received by it, and the effcwts that I have fcen of

judgment and experience, may^afily beanfwered. ■ I lay therefore that as 
in other things ot -the world, fo in matters of Spirits and Jpparitioni^ though 
lyable to much error and impofturc, yet it doth not follow but there may 
be reality of truth and certainty difcernable unto them that will, take the 
pains to learch things unto the bottom, where trnth commonly is to be 
Found, and are naturally endowed with, competent judgments to dilcern 
between Ipecious arguments and lolidity of truth. 

But this proveth nothing. No: but the removing of this common ob- 
jedion may difpofe the Reader, I hope, to confider of what we have to 
lay with lelfe prejudice. And that flhall be our next task,what we have to fay 
for Spirits^ Sec. before we come to particular Objedtions. Wherein never-

I do not know icarce any ancient book extant of Philofopher or Hifloriari 
(the Writings of prolelVed Epicureans excepted , of Arijlotle we fhall give

or paifage to the confirmation of this truth. I daie fay, fhould a man 
colled the relations and teftimonies out of feveral Authors and books (that 
are come to our knowledge) within the compafTc of two thoufand years, 
of Authors well accounted of, generally, and whole teflimonies (Hiftori-, 
ans elpecially) we receive in other things ^ a man might make a book of 
the biggeft fizeand form that ordinary books (which we call Fo//ofx) are. 
It is true, many Authors may write one thing which may prove fallc, as 
the famous hillory of the thenix^ perchance, or lome fuch,- but upon ex- 
amination it will appear that thofemany take all from one or two. at the 
moft, who firft delivered it. They add nothingin confirmation of their 
own knowledg or experience. But hckt it is quite other wile • thole ma- 
ny Authors that I fpeak of (^Hiftorians elpecially of feveral ages) they tell 



7he T'REFACE, 



us different things thathapned in their own times, in divers places of the 
world : and of many of them we may fay they were fuch as knew little of 
former books, or ftories of other Nations but their own. Within thefc 
200 years the world , we know, by the benefit of Navigation hath been 
more open and known then before ^ yea, a great part of the w^orld difco- 
vered that was not known before. I have read many books , the beft I 
could meet with, in feveral Languages, of divers Voyages into all parts of 
the world : 1 have converfcd with many Travellers, whom I judged fober 
and dilcreet. I never read any book of that argument, nor yet met with 
man that I have had the opportunity to confer with, but was able of his 
own knowlcdgto fay fomewhat whereby my belief of thefe things might 
be confirmed. 

Now for the Epicureans (of all Philofophers the moft inconhderable in 
matters of knowledg, as former ages have defcribed them) no man need 
to wonder if they denycd thofe things which by the fokmn engagement of 
their SeB. they were bound and refolved, notwithftanding any fight or fenfe, 
experiende or evidence to the contrary , not to believe, at leaft not to 
acknowledg. This doth clearly appear by one that may be believed 
(though I have met with it in more) in fuch things. Luc'tan (himfelfa 
profeft Ebicurean Athcift ) who doth commend Democritus , Epicurus and 
Met r odor us (the moft famous or thatSed:) for their a/aactciimy yvaiAny ^ ashc

(befides the judgmenc of all accounted wil^and learned in former ages) I aii\ 
convid:ed in my judgment,that (o much fblid reafon in all Arts and Sciences 
never iflued from mortal man (known unto us by his writinfT^s) without 
fupernatural illumination. Well: Anflotk i\oi\\ not acknowledg S/)/r/>/ , 
he mentions them not in any place. Let it be granted : An<^ why fliould 
it be a wonder to any man that knows the drifi and purpose of Arijlodes 
Phylofophy ? He lived when P/^ro lived ; he had been his fellow Scho- 
ler under Socrates , and forfome time his Scholer^ but afterwards he be- 
came his<emulus, and plealed himfelf very much to oppofe his Dodrine ' 
infomuch as he is cenlured by fbme Ancients for his ingratitude. The 
truth is, flato's writings are full of Prodigies, Apparitions of Souls, pains 
of Hell and Purgatory , Revelations of the gods, and the like. Wherein 
he is fo bold that he is fain to excuie himfelf fbmetimes, and doth not 
dciire that any man fhould believe him, according to the letter of his rela- 
tions, but in groffeonly, that iomewhat was true to that effedt. Indeed 
he hath many divme palfages, yea, whole Trcatifes , that can never be fuffi- 
cicntly admired in their kmd; but too full of tales, for a Phylofopher, it 
cannot be denyed. Jriflotle therefore refolved upon a quite contrary way : 
He would meddle wirh nothingbut what had fome apparent ground in 
I^ature. Not that he precifely denyed all other things, butbecauic he did 
not think that it was the part of a Phylofopher to meddle with thofe things 
that no probable realon could be given of. This doth clearly appear by 
a Divine paflage of his, Depart, anim. /.i.e. 5. where he divides Subftances 
in iywlilovf »} <l^6i{]ov(^ Eternal ayid Incorruptible ^ that is, in effecl, Spiritual (for 
even Spirits that were created might be termed a>f'''"1<", that is, properly, Ibat 
laye not their hgmning by Generation j but we will eafily grant, that the cre- 
ation of Angels, good or bad, was not known to /in^totle : (wemay un-

ledg (yea though Tpe know but a<very little part) of things Divitle for their excellen- 
cy ^ then in the knowkdg of theje tiforldly things though neyer fo perfeH and general But 
the comfort that we have of them [which doth makefo?ne amends) is the Certainty^ and 
that they come witLn the compaffe of Sciences^ What could be laid more Di- 
vinely by a man chat had nothing by revelation ? Truly, there appeareth 
unto mc (if I may fpeak without offence and miiconffrudtion) more Di- 
vinity in thofe words, then in fome books that pretend to nothing ell^. Add 
to this another place of his in his Metaphyftcksj where he laith. That though 
things fupernatural be of themfelves clear and certain, yet to us they are 
not lo , who fee them only withOwles eyes. Can vvc fay then that ^ri- 
ftotle denyed thofe things that he forbore to write of, becaule they were 
( their natures and tbeir qualities) above the knowledg of man ? Neither 
is it abiolutely true mat Ariflotle never wrote of Spirits and Apparitions. 
Ci«ro in his firflbook Ve Divinatione^ hathalongftory outof himof afhape

And that he did not deny Witches, may appear by that mention he makes 
of them in more then one place. How much healcribed to common re- 
port and experience, though no reafon could be given, doth appear by his 
Preface to hisTreatife Dc Divinatione pi^r wfomia: where he propofeth the 
cafe, how hard it is for a r.itional man to believe any thing upon seporc 
whichhecan fee no realon for j nay ^ which ieemcth contrary to realon i 
a-^jfor amanto foretel by dream what fhall happen in another KingJomC

hardrodeny that which all men, or mofi: men, do be.ieye, to wit, that 
there be fuch p red i»ft ions. "For to fay (his own word>) that (uch dieams

be underftoodby them that underftand his Doctrine) it is moll: unreafon-

to favour either \vicked men or fools. I wifli no worfe Doctrine had e- 
"ver been Printed or Preached concerning God. But ftill let it be remern- 
bred that he knew of no Divine Word or Revelation. Yet JuLScal/ger, in 
his Commentaries upon FJypocmtes Ve Infomnlis^ doth wonder that Aril}otle 
fliould Ifick lo much at this^ and feems himlelf to give a realon grounded 
in Nature. Indeed he laith lomewhat as to the cafe of fools and idiots 
but nothing (that I remember) that reacheth to wicked men alio. Lee 
thefe things be confidered, and let the Reader judge of how different tem- 
per Aiijloik was from that ot" ancient or later Epicures. "This mention of 
Jrijlotle and Tlato puts me in mind of Socrates their Mailer, Ins Familiar

much directed. The thirg is attelied by fo many, fo grave Authors where-

indeed is it, that I remember, by any Heathens or Chriftians of ancient 
times, and there have been books written of it, divers^in Greek and Latine, 
whereot fome are yet extant. But whether it were a good Spirit orarK 
evil, lome men have doubted, and ic is free for any man to think what 
he pleafeth of it. For my part I ever had a Reverend opinion oi^ Socrates ,

and do believe (if there be no impiety in it, as I hope not) that he was as 
among Heathens in fome refped, a fore-runner of Chrift, to difpofethem 
the better when the time fhouldcome to imbrace (and it did it efFedually) 
the Gofpel. Many other Phylofophers, that have been of greateft fame^ 
were certainly great Magicians, 2S Orpheus^ ^ythagorM^ Empedodes ^ and the 
like, as by thofe things that have been written otthem by feveral ancient 
authors may be colledcd. But above all I give the pre-eminence to Apol- 
hnius Ihmeus ^ a man of later times ^ and of whom we may Ipeak with 
more confidence and certainty. This was the man whom ancient Hea- 
thens very tenacious of their former worfhip and fuperftitions , did pitch 
upon to oppofe unto Chrift. His Life hath been written by divers four 
of them were joyned together and oppofed to the four Golpels : and 
Hierocksj a famous Phylofopher of thofe times, made a Collation of his 
Miracles with thofe of Chriils , who was anfwered by Eufebms^ yet extant. 
Sure it is, they prevailed ^o much, that he was for a long time worfhipped 
by many, andinfundry places as a very God,- yea, by fome Roman Em- 
perors, as we find in Hiftory. fhtlojlratus hath written his Life in very 
Elegant ftile (as T/^ot/wj judged J in 8 books, which are extant. And

former edition of Mdus ; Which I (peak not to find fault but bccaufe I 
wifh that fome able man would undertake the work ; there is not any 
book, by the Tranflations yet extant, that more needeth it. What ufc Sca- 
llger made of him, may appear by his frequent quotations in his Notes 
-upon EufebiHSj in the Hiftory of thole times. As for Jppollonitis his Mira- 
cles or wonderful Ads (which is our bufinefle here) though many things 
have been added , fome, probably, done by Impofiure , ver I uo not fee 
how it can be doubted but hedid many ftrange things by the help of 5/7/- 
r\u^ which things may be judged by due oblervation of circumftances . as 
for example. That being con vented before Dowifww the Emperor in the pre* 
fence of many, heprefently vanifhed and was leenagrcat way off (at ^ute- 
oli I think) about the fime time. That at the very time when i)omitian 
was killed at "l^pwe, helpakeof itpublickly and of the manner of it at E- 
^hefus : and fo of many others, which ieem to me (asuittomoft) almoft 
unqueftionable. The greatefl: wonder to me is, that fiich was his port and 
outward appearance of Sandity aud Simplicity, that even Chriftrans have 
thought reverently of him, and believed that he did his wt)nders by the 
power of God, orbyfecret Philofophy and knowledg of Nature not re- 
vealed unto other men. So Jujlim Martyr ^ one of the ancient Fathers of 
the Church judged of him, as is well known. Moft later Phylofophers 
that lived about Julians time , and before that, as alfo the Emperors them- 
felves, many of them , were great Magicians and ]S(ecromancers , as may

eafily appear, partly by their own writings , and partly by the Hiitoiy of 
thole times. 

I do very much wonder whether any man , being a Scholer ^ and not 
ftrongly prepofleiled, that doth not believe Spirits^ 6cc. can lay that he c- 
ver read the books of Tryalsand Confeffions of Witches and Wizards, fuch 
I mean, as have been written by learned and judicious men. Such as, for 
example , I account NichnJ ^^cni^ins^ his DcmonQlatria : ex judiciis capitalihus 
5^00 plus minus hormmim^ Sec. grounded eipecially upon the Confeilions and 
Condemnations of no leffe then 900 men and women in Lorraine within 
thecompalTe of few years. That he was a learned man, I think no body 
will deny that hath read him ; and that he was no very credulous and luper- 
ftitious man (though aPapift) that alfo is moft certain : and ihavewon- 
dred at his liberty many times. I know not how it is now in thole pla- 
ces ; but by what I have read and heard of the doings of Witches and Sor- 
" cerers in Oem'Va and Sa^oy in former times ( I could lay fomewhat of my 
*' ielf,how my life was prcferved there very ffcrangely , but my witnelTes are 
*'not,and I willnot brm? their creditin queftion tor fuch afeuiincffe.) I 
am of opinion. That he that fhould have maintained there tnac there was 
no fuch thing as Witches, or Spirits, &c. would have been thought by 
moft either mad and brain-fick (fo frequent and vifible were the etleds to 
fober eyes) or a Witch himfelf. For '-.deed it is ordinary enough, that 
thofe that are lo really, are very willing ( which deceiveth many ) to be 
thought Impoftora , and there is good realon for it: I fliould (ooner fuf^ 
ped: him an Impoftor that doth profeffe himfelf (except it be by way of 
confelfion , as many have done) and is ambitious to be counted a Witch or 
Sorcerer. I remembe** I iaw a book fome years ago, intituled, T)e I'incon- 
Jiance des 7nauvais Anges <(sr Demons ^ printed at 'P^i/'W 1612. in ^«4?fo, and ano- 
ther of the fame Author, and (ize, intituled, L'incredidite 6^ jyiejcnauce du for- 
tile^e^Taris 1642. Strange il:ories are told there ot a Province of France , a- 
bout that time (or little before) marvelloully infefted with Witches and 
Sorcerers, inlomuch that people did not know one another ( in lome 
one place) in theitreecs, by reafon of evil Spirits appearing publickly inthe 
fhapcofmen; and that the proceedings ofjuftice ( which doth not hap- 
pen.ofcen*) were fometimes difturbed by them. I think the Author him- 
ielf was one that was lent to the place by the King with lome authority ,and 
to make report. But as I do not altogether truil my memoiy, having had 
but a fight of the books (it was at the Bdl in St. fauis Church-yard : ; So I 
beleech the Reader not to reft upon this account that I give him upon my 
beft remembrance,but to perufe the books himfelf. I am confident he may 
receive good latisfa(5tion, being things that were not done in a corner , but 
very publickly and well attefted as I remember. However the reader muft 
give me leave ( though it be not to this purpoie, left my Ci- 
v^frVr'p*^^^' lencebe drawn to the prejudice of the truth) to tell him,thac 
I met with one gre.u fallhood there concerning my own ra- 
ther (ofS/. M.) which I have abundantly refuted, and all others of that 
nature, when I was yet very young. But that (as I conceive) which in all 
tfieieftories would moftpuzzle a rational man, is the fignes which are let

("and commonly enough known} by Sewmtm upon this occafion. There 
is one, whom I think interiour to none, though perchance not Co com- 
monly known or read, and that is fieor^ius 1{aqujaiu4 a Venetian, who by his 
fir ft education and profeffion wasan Aftrologer, caft many Nativities, and

I could fay fomewhat of ancienter Phyficianstoo, and give fome account 
of thole many Spels and Charmes that are in Iralliems^ m all his books - 
an ancient Phyfician , in high efteeme with lome eminent Phyficians of

tOjWho not being able to deny the a?/ ,or matter o/Ki^,wouldfcem to fay fomc- 
what rather then to acknowledg Spirits, and Divels^and Witchcraft; <Pompo- 
natius jWho hath not heard of ? I once had the book,I know not now what is 
become of it.But I remember well,I never was more w^eary of reading then 
when I read him ; nothing that ever I read or heard of j^egends and old 
womans tales did feem to me more groundlefle and incredible. But be- 
caufe thofc men bear themfelves very much upon the power of imagina- 
tion (which indeed is very great, and doth produce ftrange effeds) I fhall 
commend to the fober Reader that hath not yet met with him , Tho. Fienus 
his Learned Tradat , Ve yiribus Imaginat'mm , a very Rational and Philofo- 
phical difcourfe. Of their miferable fhifts and evafions in general, the 
Author or Obicrvator rather of Muf^.umVeronenfe ^ before quoted, will give 
you a good account. I have at this prelent in my hands the writings of 
a Phyfician, Augerius ferrerius by name. What he was for a Phyfician I know 
not,- all ( I doubt) of that profeffion will not allow very well of his Pre- 
face to his Cafttgdttoncs ^raEiictt Medicbi^^ whatever they think of the Cajli- 
gattones themfelves. But in general, his Stile, and various reading, and 
knowledge of good Authors, fpeak him a Learned man ruflficiently, T/;»- 
anus in his Hiftory gives him a moft ample Elogtwn^ and makes him to have 
been Jul. C. Scaltger his intimate acquaintance and much refpeded by him. 
But 1 doubt whether Thuams had ever feen this book of his : it doth not 
appear by that Elogiim that he had. Well , this Learned man in his Chap- 
ter T)e Homerica (fo he calls it) Medicatione^ where he treats of cures done by 
Charms and Spels , by Words and Charaders, which others impute com- 
monly to Witchcraft : firft, for the o^,, he doth not deny it : (Natn m qud 
fsnfbus expojita jmit c<^tra'Ytmre^ Jani btminis non eft.) He thinks them little 
better then mad men that will deny that which is approved by ^o vifiblc 
experience. Yet it feems he was one of them that did not believe , or 
would not believe ( though he doth not fay fo pofitively) Sinnts and Witch- 
ts , and Supernatural Operations. What then ? he plainly maintaineth 
and argueth it (though he quote no Gofpel for it) that luch is the nature 
of the Soul of man (if he know how toule it) that by aftrong faith and 
confidence it may work any miracle without a miracle: Verum confidentU 
ilia^ acfirmaperjuajio ( that you may have fome of his words if you have

after , VoHus vero <(sr fibi conflans folo verbo Janabit. I do not hence conclude 
that this Ferrer ius ^ though he Ipeak as though he were, and names no body 
clfe , that he wasthefirll or only that hath been of this opinion. jh>icenne 
the Arab was the firff,as I take it, that fet it on foot : fome others have fol- 
lowed him in it. Butlince theie men acknowledg the ftrange etFcCts that 
Others deny, let the fober Reader judge whether of the two more likely td 
grant 5pjr iff and Divels , or to make the Soul t)f man (of every man^ na- 
turally) either a God or a Divel. But let men take heed how they attempt ta 
do Miracles by their flrong faith and confidence , for that is the ready way 
to bring the Divel unto them, and that is it which hath made many Witch-

cs and Sorcerers. As for that Faith whereby men did work Miracles in 
the Primitive times, fpoken of in the Golpel, commonly CiiUed , The. 
Faith of Miracles , that is quite another thing , which I fliall not need to 
{peak of in this place. Of a flrong confidence in God, even in them that 
arc not other wile very godly, whether it may not, according to Gods firft 
order and appointment, produce fbmetimes iome ftrange eftecls ; we have 
had a confidcration ellcwhere , where we treat of Trccatorie Emhufeajm. But 
this alio is quite another thing, as may appear by what we have written 
of it. 

But to conclude this part 5 upon due confidcration of the premifes, and 
what elfe I have inreadmefle upon the fame Subjc(it Cir God give me life 
and health) I cannot fatisfie my felf how any Learned man , fober and 
rational, can entertain fiich an opinion (fimply and lerioully) That there 
be no Vivds nor Spirits^ &c. But upon this account which I give my felf 
(leaving all men to their own judgments herein) that if there beanyiuch 
truly and really, it mull: needs be becauie being at firft prepolTeffed upon 
fomeplaufible ground^ and being afterwards taken up with other thoughts 
and employments, they are more* willing to ftick to their former opi- 
nion without further trouble, then to take the pains tofeek further. 

dides doth very well obferve. And when we lay, A Learned nwi^ there 
is much ambiguity in that word. For a man may be (not to Ipeak of 
the ignorance of the common people, in thole climates efpecially, who 
think all Learning concluded in ^Preaching • and now in thele times 
too , them beft Preachers that in very deed have leaft Learning , but 
preach by /7i/?/;i^ and Injpkation ^ as they call it) but a man, I Tay, may 
DCzLear?ud Ma}ij a very Learned man in lomeone kind or profelfidn, even 
to Excellency and Admiration , who neverthelefie is and may be found 
ignorant enough in other kinds : but a general Learned man is a thing of 
a vaft extent, and not often leen. It is a bufmeffe of an infinite labour, 
befides that it requireth Natural parts anfwerablc; without which (judg- 
ment fpecially ) the more pains fometimes the more ignorance. I aim 
not by this at any particular man or men (Deum tejlor) I would much rather 
fubmitto thecenfure of others my felf, then take upon me to ccnlureany ; 
but the obfervation is of very good ule, I know it, and may give much la- 
tisfadion in many ca(cs,and have given an inftance of it in Tertullia?ija.nd fomc 
others ellcwhere. 

I have done for this time; I come now to the Objections, wherein I fliall 
not need to be very long, becaufethey run much upon one thmg,Impofturc, 
which hath already been fpoken of andanfwered. But yet fomewhat more 
particularly fhal be anfwered. 

Firft, O^ Miracles. It cannot be dcnyed but the world is full of horrible 
Impoftures in that particular : Yet I believe , that fom.e fijpernatural 
things , as cures , &c. do happen in every age , for which no rea- 
fon can be given , which alio for the ftrangenefl'e may be called Mi- 
racles. But if we limit (with moft) the word to thofe things that 
proceed immediately from God or divine power ; I fhall not be

Mverfam. In the fubftance I believe there could be no miftake, but if there 
be any miftake in any Circumfl:ances,as ofNames,or othcrwife , that muft be

There is no necefficy that any body fliould make of either of thefe re- 
lations an Article of his Faith ; yet I thought them very probable,becaule 
believed by fucha man, and therefore have given then\a place here. So 
much of Miracles. 

Of Exorcijmes we mull fay as of Miracles. One notable example of a 
counterfeit Polfeffion, and of great ftirs likely to have inllied u^on it in 
France^ we have out of Thuanm^ in our late Treatife of Enthuflajme. The Hi- 
flory of the Boy of 'Bilfon is extant ^ who by the Wiiclom and Sagacity of the 
R' R' F. in GodThomaSy Lord Bifliop of Lichfield and (jventry ^ wasdifco- 
vered to be an Impoftor on purpofe let up and fuborned to promote the Ro- 
miili caufe, An. Vom. 1620. Such examples and ftories moft Countries have 
afforded good ftore, which arc extant in divers Languages. Neither muft 
it be concealed (by them that leek truth without partiality) that lome, once 
called VifciplinarianSj now more known by another name, have attempted 
to deal in thoie things, hoping thereby to gain great advantage to their 
caufe. It was a famous Story in Q^Eli:^abeth's Reign, though now per- 
chance out of the knowledg of many, and beyond the remembrance of any 
living, how one Mr. D. a very -zealous man of that Se<5t, did take upon 
him by long prayers to call out Divels . '^ .xuintained and ailerted with 
great veh^ncncy by him and fbme others that favoured that caufe, though 
upon legal examination they proved otherwile , which occafioned many 
books on both fides in thofe day es, but two, meliorismta ^ as we fay, writ- 
ten by Dr. H. concerning Exorcifnes ■ the one againft Papifts, the other a- 
gainft QP. I have them both fomewhere yet, I hope, but can not come at 

them' 



The T'F^EFJCE, 



them at this time, which is the caufe that I cannot particularize that bu- 
iineflewith circuraftances of times, and names or perft)nsas I would. But 
there were many other books written (fomevery big, which I havefeen ) 
about it , as I laid betore j fo that the whole bufinefle , with very little in- 
quifition, if any have a mind, may quickly be found out. One Book- 
feller in Little Sr/fJzVi did help mc to the fight of fix or leven at once, yet 
one of the books then written, and as I was told, upon this occafion much 
commended unto mc by Ibme very Learned, to wit, Dr. Jordan^ of the 
Sujfocation of the Matrix^ I long fought before I could meet with it. And 
fuch was the ignorance of iome Booklellers, that I could not perfwade them 
■there was any fuch book extant: but now at laft I have got it. All the 
ule I fhall make ot it at this time is» that whereas the whole drift of the book 
tends unto this, tofllew the error of many in alcribing natural difeales to 
fupernatural caules , which might bethought by (bme to favour their o- 
pinion that believe not Wttches^ Sec. The Author doth very prudently and 
pioufly make this profe/Tion inthe Preface, I ilo not deny but that God doth in 
thefe dayes work extraordinarily for the deliy^erance of his children^ and for other ends 
kji hiioivn to him/elf ; atui that among other there may be both poffefsions by the DiVel^ 
and ohfejiions^ and Witch-craft, &c. and dfpoJJ'efsion alfo through the Prayers and Slip- 
plications of his jeryants^ which is the only }?ieans left unto us for our relief in that cafe^ 
hut fuch examples being<ver-f rare now adayes. Sec. V^rf^r all this I do not con- 
clude that Mr. D. was guilty of any Impofturc : he might do it through 
ignorance being cozened by others. I have heard he was anhoneft man, 
and dyed pioully , and dilclaimed to the very laft that he did any thing in 
that buimelTe otherwiie then Bona Fide. I would judge charitably, even 
of thoie men that ate not guilty of much charity towards others, whofe 
judgments and conlciences will not fufFer them (though men of approv- 
ed worth and piety otherwiie) to lay as they lay, and to do as they do in 
all things. Be it granted therefore, that this bufinefle of Exorcifmes is ly- 
abletomuch Impollure : however, no man that hath read the relations 
of men and women pofleft, in leveral places, with due obfervation of cir- 
cumftances , iome of which relations, befides other perlons of credit, have 
been atteiled j^ yea, Ibme penned and publifhed by learned Phyficiansand 
Naturalifts, who have been employed about the Cure, fiblerved their car- 
riage, heard fome of them fpeak ftrange Languages : lilly women pofleft, 
dilcourlc of highcft points of Phyloibphy, or the Mathematicks and the 
like. No man, I lay, that is not a ftranger to thele things (befides what 
fome Travellers, no way interefledin the caufe, can aver upon their own 
knowledge) will make any queftion either of the real poflcffion of divers, 
accordmg to relations that have been made, or of the Divels (peaking in 
them and by them when they have been Exorciledj and iometimes upon 
bare conference. And though feme Proteftants are of.opmion, That it is 
not lawful or warrantable for any man to take upon him to Exorciie upon 
fuch occafions, that is, (as I conceive) by way of abiblute power and au- 
thority ,. and by luperftitious wayes and means, as is ordinarily done : 
Yet where a man hath a Calling, as it he be lawfully Called to the Mini- 
ftry^ and fee over fuch a Par ifh where any happen to be poifefled (as in-

In En^lifh (for their fakes that unierftmd no Latine, and that it be 
not required alwayes, for it would be very tedious) this is the efFe(5t , 
At iuchatime, in inch a place, hehadcheopporcunicy to meet with a grave 
(whether Lady or Gentlewoman) Matron , one he had a very good opini- 
on oFj her nam? M.deSt.Tons^ and having often heard by common re- 
port of a certain Proteftant Miniffer that was faid to caft out Divels, he 
did accurately inform himfelf by her (fhe living, it feems, very near, if. 
not in the lame parifh ) of all particulars concerning that bufincfTc; 
who did averre it to be moft true , and that ten , or thereabouts, Demo- 
moniacks, or pofTelTcd men (all making profelnon of tlie Roman Catho- 
lick Religion) had been brought to the Church ("atfeveral times, as I take 
it) and that publickly, and by the genetall conlefsion of all then pie- 
fenc, and by lome. nocable fignes (Ibmctimes; at the going out of the 
De\i!s- they were , upon his Praying after Sermon, all delivered. But 
that he took it very hainoufly if any faid, that he had caft out Devils ; for, 
not I, faid he, but the earneft Prayers of the Church, have prevailed with 
Almighty God to work this wonderful thing. 

As for Oracles : It is true, Heathens themfelves acknowledg, that fome

were the JLigglings of men. Sometimes Princes j ibractimcs private men : 
(as now of Religion, of Preaching, and Praying, and Fading j of MaflTes 
and ProceiTions : moft Princes and States in all places ) made good ufe of 
them to their owneends j and made them ipeak what themfelves had prom- 
pted. But a man might as probably argue 3 becaufe fome have been fo frec- 
Jy acknowledged to have been by compad: aad fiibornation, it is the more 
.likely, that thofe of which never any fufpicion was, fhould be true. Wc 
read of many in Herodotus: of one, which was contrived by fraud j but 
there we read aUo, that when it came to be known (though care had been 
taken that irmight not :) the chief Contriver, agrcatinan, wasbanifhed^or 
prevented worfe, by avoluntaty Exile ; and the Sacred yir^m or ^Trophetejfe^ 
.depofed. But not to infill upon particulars, which would be long, it is 

' moft certain, and it will cleerly appear unto them that are well read in anci- 
ent Authors and Hiftories, That^llHeathens^generally the wifeft: andlearn- 
edeft of them, thole efpecially, that lived when Oracles were moft- frequent, 

' did really believe them to be, which they pretended unto : and that they 
•were fo indeed, for the moft: part (taking it for granted that their Gods were 
^tVf/ior BytlSpirits) by many circumitancesof Stories, and by other lood 
proofs, may be made as evident : neither was it ever doubted or denyed (al- 
waycs granted and prefuppofed, that, as in all worldly things, much impo- 
fture did intervene and intermingle) by ancient Chriftians acknowledged, I 
am lure, by moft, if not all. But I have fpokcn of them elfewhere already, 
and therefore will be the fliorter here. 

Ouilaft Ohje^ion was : If there be VeVils a.nd Spirits j'^hy do they not ap- 
pear unto them, who do what they can, as by continual curfes/o by profane 
curiofity to invite them ? Firft, We fay, «r6^e?<iVi(']« ra' xe4ta.7<t *ut». 1^ dvi^ixvi*Toi dt 
WeiituVj. When we have good ground for the on ^ to ftick at the Mn^ be- 
caufe we do not underftand the reafon, is as much as to fay, that we think 
we fhould be as wile as God- Arijlotle did not meddle with things that he 
could give no reaion of j yet he did not deny them (as we have fhewed^ 
and it is one thing to require a reafon of things meerly natural j and another 
of thofe that happen by a meer fecrct Providence. But this will give them 
no great latisfa(f^ion who perchance believe a God (fome) as much as they 
believe a Devil.. Secondly^ Therefore we Tay, There maybe fome natural rea-

with little wine will quickly be drunk, and become other Creatures, being

ver lo much, will fooner burft then reel, or fpeak idly . as fome in their 
excefs grow merry, others fad : fome calm and better natured ^ others furi- 
ous : Ibme talkative, others ftupid. The Devil knowes what tempers are 
beftfor his turn J and by Ibme in whom he was deceived, he hath got no 
crtdit,and wifhcd he had never meddled with them. Some men come into 
the world with C^/'d///?/^^/ drains; their heads are full of myfteries ,• they fee 
nothing, they read nothing, but their brain is on work to pick fbmewhat 
out of It that is not ordinary,- and out ofthe very A'B C that children are 
taught, rather then fail, they will fetch all the Secrets of Gods Wifdom, tell 

you 



The T\SFJCE. 



you how the world was created, how governed, and wha: will be the end of 
all things. Reafonand Senfe that other men go by, they think the acorns 
that the'old world fed upon j fools and children may be content with them 
but they fee into things by another Li^k. They commonly give good re- 
ifpedt unto the Scriptures (till they come to profeft Anab^ptijis) becaufe they 
believe them the Word df God and not of men ; but they referve unto them- 
felves the Interpretation, and founder the title of Dmw Scripture^ worfhip 
what their own phanfie prompts, or the devil puts into their heads. Buc 
of all Scriptures the Q^evelation and the obfcure Prophefies are their delight^ 
for there they rove fecurely j and there is liot any thing fo prodigious or chi- 
merical, but they can fetch it out of fome Prophefie, as they will mterpret it. 
Thefe men, if they be upright in their lives and dealings, and fear God tru- 
ly, it is to be hoped that God will preferve them from further evil ; but they 
areofa dangerous temper- Charitable men will picythern, and Ibbcrraea 
will avoid them. On the other fide, fome there are whofe brains are of a 
flirfand reftive mould ; it will not eafily receive new impre/Iions.They will 
hardly believe any thing but what they fee ; and yet rather not believe their 
eye* then to believe any thing that is not according to thecourleof nature, 
and what they have been ufed unto. The devil may tempt fuch by fenfual 
baits, and catch them • but he will not eaiily attempt to delude them by ma- 
cical Shews and Apparitions. An^ wh^'-^nber man, that believeth as a God, 
fo a di vel,doih doubt,but they that make it their daily pradice to damn them- 
felves,by fuch horrid oaths and curfes,are as really pofleft,yea far more in the 
po{feis:on of the devii,thea many thattoam at the mouth, and fpcak flrange 
languages ? 

But j'"^ Some have tried and ufed the means,but could never lee any thing 
but what if others that never defired it really, but in fome wanton curiofity, 
unadviiedly, that they might be the better able to coni-urethe iimpHcity of 
fome others as they thoughr,rather then that their faith wanted any fuch con- 
firmation , have tryed fome things,or have been prefent at fome experiments 
and have feen ( with no fmall aftonifhment) more then they expeded or dc^ 
'fired ? Some perfons of credit and quality, I am fure, have made it their con- 
fefsion unto me,thac it hath fo h.^pned unto them ; who have been fo alFcdted 
with it,that they Would noti'or a world be fo furprized again. 

But4'y and laflly, TheConfefsionsoflome Magicians are extant in print, 
who tell very particularly what means they ufed , what books they read, &c. 
and they Gw and found (if we believe them ,• and what fliould tempt them 
to lye, no melancholy men, I know not) till they were weary ,and Gods grace 
wroughtupon their hearts to bring them to repentance. There be fuch confef- 
fions extant,but the Readei flial pardon me,if I give him no further account. 
It would much better becom them therefore,that have made fuch effays with- 
out fucceffe, to repent, and to be thankful unto God.then to make that an ar- 
gument, that theres no divel, and perchance no God. There is a terrible fay- 
incJ (if well underffood) in the Sctipturc ; 'opv^«?p(/WT«^ He that is filthy let him 
he filthy Jltll Let them take heed (I advife them as a friend) if they perfift in 
their hardnefs of heart and infidelity^ left God in juft judgment,r.houglichcy

any thing,left they fhoiild fear and be converted.

7 he T%E\¥ ACE, 



I Come now to Dr. D e e, and. to fhU ^ook of his, which hath been 
the occafion of all the Dilcourfe hitherto. As for his Perlon or Pa- 
rentage , Education and the like, I have but little tp lay more then 
what he faith himfelf in his firft Letter to the Emperor (Rodolphe) of 
Oerinanyj that being yet very young he was fought unto {amb'ii^eruni me) by 
two Emperors , CHARLsthe 5''' and Ferdinando his Brother and Sue-* 
cefifor in the Empire. Mr. Cambden indeed in the year 1571 makes honou- 
rable mention of him, and calls him, Nobilis Matfmmtkus. He dedicated 
\ his Mwj^f Hierog/jip/^/c^ to Maximilian Succeffor to Ferdinando firft 
printed at Jntwerp^ Jn.Dom.i^6^^ and afterwards at Francford^ <59«» and 
what other places 1 know not. In the year 1595. he did write (and was 
printed 1599 I am fure,but whether before that or no, I cannot certainly 
tell) J dijcourfe Jpologetical^ &cc. dire<aed to the then JnhbiJJjop of Canterbury 
wherein he hath a Catalogue of books written by himfelf, printed and un- 
printed, to the number of 48. in all , and doth alfb mention the books of 
.his Library about 4000 volums in all , whereof yco ancient Manufcripts 
Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. There alfo doth he produce a Teftimony of the 
Univerfity of Qambndg^ dated 1 548. But this whole Difcourfeof his being 
butfhort, for the better latisfa(5tion of the Reader, I thought good to have it 
here reprinted the next after this Preface. His Mathematical Preface before 
Euclid^ is that I think which of all his writings publifhed hath been moft 
taken notice of in Englatid^ and added much to the worth and commendati- 
on of that Edition of Eudtd, He was a married man and had divers children 
as will appear by this Relation ; a great Traveller , and lived to a great age. 
But as I laid before, I do not pretend to give an account of his life in gene- 
ral, unto others, which my felf am yet aftrangerto. What concerneth 
this %eUtim I am to giVe an account , and I hope there fhall be nothing 
wanting to that. Four things I propole to my (elf to that end 

hrji , Somewhat to confirm the truth and fincerity of this whole %e- 
lati m. 

, Secondly ^ To anfwer fomc Objections that may be -made againll (bmc 
parts of it. 

Thirdly J To give fome light to fome places, and tofatisfie the Reader con- 
cerning the perfection and imperfection of the book , as alfb , concerning 
the Original Copy. 

Fourthly^ and laftly, To fhew the many good- ufes that may be made of all 
by a fober Chriflian. 

L It fcems that Dr. Df? began to have the reputation of a Qonjurer be- 
times. He doth very grievoufly complain of ii in that fp^^/^cf to Euclid 
but novv fpokcn of , about the end of it , and yet there doth alfb 
term himfelf, An aid forworn Mathematician. For my part w^hether 
he could ever truly be fo called, I yet make fome queftion : But I am 
very confident, that himfelf did not know or think himfelf fo , but 
a zealous worfliipper of God , and a very free and fincere Chriitian.

whence this is pretended to be taken , is fufficienc (with civil undcr^ 
tending nien ) to prevent the groflenefle of fuch a miftake. Befides 
thf GrKrinal Copy it fclf , all written with Dr. Dm own harid, there 
kept and preferved. But by Truth and Sincerity, intending not only Dr. 
7)ce's fidelity in relating what himfelf believed , but alio the reality of 
thofe things that he fpeaks of, according to his relation : his only (but 
areat and dreadful) error being, that he miftook falfe lying Spirits for 
ATjgelsof Light , the Diyelof Hell (as we commonly term him) for the 
God of Heaven. For the Truth then, and Sincerity or 'Reality of the Ela- 
tion in this fenfe, I fhall firft appeal to the Book it felf. I knoW it is 
the fafliionof many (I will not fay that (I never did it my felf) that arc 
birers of* books, they will turn five or fix leaves, if they happen up- 
on lomewhat that pleafeth their fancy , the book is a good book , and 
when they have bought it, it concerneth them to think fo, becaufe they have 
paid for it : but on the other fide, if they light upon fomcwhat that doth 
not pleafe (which may happen in the beft) they are as ready to condemn 
and c^ftaway. It is vpry polfible that fome fijch buyer lighting upon this , 
and in it, upon fome places here and there, where fome odd uncouth things 
may cffeV themfelves ; things ridiculous, incredible to ordinary fen/e and 
conik!i6tion,he may be teady to judge of the whole accordingly. But for all 
this 1 will in the firft place appeal to the book it felf,- but with this refpe^ to 
the Reader , that he will have patience to read in order one Fourth part of the 
book at leaft before he judge ; and if by that tinie he be not conviaed^he fhall 
have my good will to give it over. Not but that all the reft, even to the end, 
doth help very well to "confirm the truth and reality of the whole Story : 
but becaufe 1 chink there is fo much in any fourth part, if diligently read^and 
with due confidcration, that I defpair of his aflent,that is not convidied by- 
it. For my part,when the book was firft communicated un-

mitccd the whole biirinefs unco me ; I rcid it over very cxadly , and took 
notes of the moft remarkable paflages (as they appeared unto me) truly 
I was fo much confirmed in this firft opinion by my lecond reading, that- 
I fhall not be afraid to profefs that I never gave mo^r credit to any Hu- 
mane Hiftory of former times. All thmgs feer.ied unto me fo fimply , 
and yet fo ate '-'•rely , ' and with fo much confirmation of all manner 
of circumftances written and delivered , that I cannot yet fatisfie my felf, 
but all judicious Readers will be of my opinion. But neverthelcls, to 
help them that trufV not much to their own judgments , let us fee what 

Fir(i I would have them., that would be further fatisfied, to read Dr. 
'Dam that forecited Preface, where he doth plead his own caufe, to acquit 
himfclf of chat grievous crime and imputation of a Qonjurer. But that was 
written I mull confefs, long before his Communication with Spirits: 
yet it isfomewhacto know what opinion he had then of them that deal 
witk Divels and evil Spirits. But after he was made acquainted, and in 
great dealing's with them, and had in readincfs divers of chcfchis books, 
or others o? the fame Argument, containing their ieveral conferences 
and communications, to rhew, and the manner of their -appearing cxadlly 
fct down • obferve, I pray, with what confidence he did addrefs himfelf 
to the areateft and wileft in Europe. To Queen Elizabeth often , and to 
her Council, as by many places of this Relation doth appear ; but more 
particularly by his Letter to Sir Frmcis Walfingham^ Secretary, &c. That 
he did the like to Kins; >»JeJ and his Councel, may eafily be gathered by 
the Records (in this %eUtm) of 1607. but much defedive. But then to 
the Emperor <2^o^o/p/.^e , to5ff/>^e«K.lngof foUnd^ and divers other Princes 
and their Deputies • thewifeft and learnedft, their fcveral Courts did af- 
ford for the time : the particulars of all which addreffes and tranfadions 
are ver- exadly fct- down in the book. Nay, fuch was his confidence, that 
had it not been for the Kuncuts Aj^aflolim his appearing againft him at the 
Emperors Court by order from the Pope, he was, as by fomc places may 
becolledcd, rcfolved for 5(o;ne alfo , not doubting but he fliould approve 
himfelf and his doings to the Pope himfelf and his Cardinals. I- i^W thefc 
his addrelTes and applications being ftill very ready to impart all things 
unto them that would entertain them with that refped he thought they 
deferred, yea readily, w^'-l". i^ very obfervable, even to receive them into 
this Myliical Society, whom he thought worthy, and in fomc capacity to 
promote the defign 5 as de faBo he did divers in feveral places : AlbertusA^

lenm Gewuny ^ who were long of the Society , befides fome admitted to

will eafily ^rant (as elfewhere hath been treated and handled at large) that a 
diftempered brain may fee, yea, and hear ftrange things, and entertain them 
with all pofiible confidence, as real things , and yet ail but lancy, without 
any realfound or Apparition. But thefcfightsand Apparitions that Dr. Vee 
gives here an account, are quite of another nature ; yea, though poflibly the 
Divcl misht reprefent divers of thefe things to the fancy mwardly

which appeared outwardly : Yet of another nature, I lay, au^Jiot without 
the intervention and operation of Spirits , as will cafily appear to any niaii 
by the particulars. Belidcs the long Speeches, Difcourfes, luLerlQcutions 
upon all occafions and occurrences in the presence of more then one.al- 
wayes j and externally audible to different perfons, for the mort: part or very 
frequently. That thele things could not be the operation . of ^ diflem- 
pered Fancy , will beafufficient evidence to any rational man. ,, .. . , 

Aeain, let h'" afual preparations and Prayers againft an Apparition or 
Adion (as he called them) his extraordinary prayers upon iome extra- 
ordinary occafions , as upon Edward ^liey his temporary repentance, and 
another for him when he was about to forfake him (in Latins a long one; 
Stephen King of foland being thenprelcnt. And again, when his Son A- 
thur was to be initiated to thefe Myftical Operations and Apparitions, mthe 
place of Edfi^ard I\elley , and the like. And again, his Humility, Piety , 
Patience (O what pity that fuch a man fliould fall into fuch a dclufion ! 
butwe fhallconfider of the caufes in its right place afterwards) upon all 
occafions temptations , diftrefles , moft eminent thioughout the whole 
Book. Let thefe things be well confidered , and above the refl:, his large 
and pundual relation of that fad abominable ftory of their Tromijaious ^ car- 
mi CopuUtm, under the pretence of obedience to God. • Let thefe things, 

I fay be well confidered, and 1 think no man will make any queftion but 
the poor man did deal with all pofTible fimplicity and fincerity , to the ut- 
raoitof his underftanding at that time. And truly, this one thing (aswc 
faid before) excepted , his miftaking of evil Spirits for good, it doth not 
appear by any thing but that he had his underftanding, and the perfe^c 
uCe of his Rcafon to the very laft, as well as he had had any time of his 

life. 

Again, let it be confidered, that hecarryed with him where eVer he went 

A Stone which he called hh Jn^dicall Sione., as brought unto him hy an Ah- 

oel but by a Spirit fun enough , which he fihewed unto many ; to the Emperor 

among others, or the Emperors Deputy , Dr. C«''fi", as I remember : But more 

of this Stotie afterwards. We may thereiore conclude fi.irely enough , Thac

thoic things ^^ . ^ 

miftaken as though I intended that w^hatfoever the Diveldid fcem to do 
or reprelcnt ; it was ^ally and Subflantially as it Teemed and appeared , thac 
would be a great and grofs miftake. The very word Jpparition doth rather 
import the contrary. All I underiiand by 'Sjalicy, is, that what things ap- 
peared , they did fo appear by the power and operation of Spirits, adually 
prefcnt and working , and were not the eflFeds of a depraved fancy and 
imagination by meer natural caufes. By which, ilrange things, I con fels, 
may be prefcnted and apprehended too, (ometimes by the parties with all 
confidence , as we faid before, though all be but fancy and imagination. 
But all circumftances well confidered, make this Cafe here to be ot another 
nature ^ and it may be it was the policy of thefe Spirits to joyn tipo of 
purpofe in this bufinefs, to make the truth and reality of it the more un-

oueftionable ,• hoping (if God had given way) they fliould havepafTed, uk 
time for good Spirits abroad generallyj and then we fhould have lecn what 
they would have made of it. Fro-, ielle beginnings , I am fure, great- 
eft confufions have proceeded and prevailed in the world, as we fhall fliew 
elfewhere. And fince that in all this bufinefs, as we faid but now , Dr. 
"Dee did not deal alone , but had a conftant Partner or Afsilfant, whom 
fometimes himfelf calleth his Seer^ ot Skryer^ one by name Edward i\elly ; it 
will be requifite before we proceed further, that we give fome account of 
him alio. According to Dr. Dee's own relation here, I^?i.2)ow. i^Sj.Jprilj^ 
Trebonit : in the particulars of his Son Arthur's Con[ecra(ion (after his manner 
which he calls, Hn ojf eying and prefentirig of him to the fervice of God: ) Uriel 
(one of his chiefeft Spirits) was the author of their ConjunBion: but when 
and howithapned (being but obiter mentioned there) we do not find any 
where ; and more then what I find here I have nothing to fay : For certain 
it is by this whole ftory ^ from the beginning to the end of it, that ^lley 
was a great Conjurer , one that daily converfed by fiich art as is uled by 
ordinary Vlagicians, with evil Spirits, and knew them to be Co. Yet I 
would luppole that he was one of the beft lort of Magicians , that dealt 
with Spirits by a kind of Cow?/M«J (^as is well known (ome do} and not by 
any QompaEl or agreement :^ this may probably be gathered from fimdry 
places. But that he was a Conjurer, appearereth firft by that, where he 
profFered to raife fome evil Spirit before the PoliiTi Prince Palatine , Albert 
X^sky (of whom more by and by) for a proof of his Art. But D^.Dee 
Would notfiifFerhim to do it in his houie. Wicked fpirits are caft out of 
him to the number of 1 5 . p. 5 2 . But I make no great matter of that in point 
of proof, becaulc all there upon his bare report only. But ieej).6^. &c. 
where it is laid to his charge, and he anfwereth for himfelf and his Spirits. 
See alio where at laft he yielded to bury not to burn his Magical books. 
But read his own confefsion (where you fhall find him Ipeak likeonethat 
knew very well what did belong to thcArt^ and the record made by Dr. 
Dee concerning a flirewd conteit that hapned between Dr. Dee and him , 
(it was about lome Magical thingsj wherein EdivardK^lly carried himfelf io 
fiercely, that Dr. Dee being afraid of his life, was forced to call for help. 
Perufe well this place and I prelume you will require no further li^ht as 
to this particular concerning B^lly, 

As for the feveral Epijlles (in Latin moft) that will be found here, as alio 
Narratives of leveral meetings and conferences, they carry fb much light

But of all Letters here exhibited, I am moft taken, I muftconfefs, with 
the Bifliops Letter that was 2>luncm JpoJloHcus : he feemes to rac to fpeak 
tothecaie very pertinently {tzkc 'Puccius his account along m his long 
letter to Dr. Dee^ of his conference with the faid Bifliop concerning the 
lame bulinefsjand to havecarryed himfelf towards Dr^Vee very moderate- 
ly and friendly. 

1 1. Now to Objedions : 

The firfl: fhall be this : Although 'tis very probable that Dr. Dee him- 
felf dealt fimply and lincerely ^ yet iince he himfelf faw nothing (for lb 
himfelf acknowledgeth in fome places) but by Ks^Iefs eyes, and heard no- 
thing but with his ears. Is it not pofsible that Bailey being a cun- 
ning^ man , and well pradtifed in tliefe thir;gs might impofe upon the 
credulity of Dr. Dee ( a good innocent man ) and the rather, becaufe by 
this office under the Dodor he got 50 /. by the year , as appearcth. Truly 
this isplaufibleas it is propofed ; and Hkc enough that it might go a great 
way with them that ate foon taken, and therefore feldom lee anything in 
the truth or true nature of it, but in the outward appearanceof it only. 
But read and obferve it diligently and you will find it far otherwife : It is 
true indeed, that ordinarily. Dr. Dfg faw not himfelf; his bufinefswas to 
write what was feen (but in his prefence though) and heard by %%. 
Yet that himfelf heard often immediately appeareth by many places ; I lliall 
not need any quotations for that himfelf feeleth as.well as ^elley. In the 
relation of the Holj Stone , how takcfj away by one that came in at a win- 
dow in the fhape of a man , and how reftored ■ both Jaw certainly. In the 
ftory of the Holy ^oohj how burned and how reftored again (part of them at 
leaft) which Dr D^e made a great Miracle of, as appeareth by lomeofthofc 
places J there alfo both faw certainly^ And Jlben Lasky^ tU Tolonian Talatine 
pw as 'well as l\ellcy, Befides, it doth clearly appciir throughout all the 
book that Kelley (though fometimes with much adoe perfwaded for a while 
to think better of them) had generally no other opinion of thefe Appa- 
litions but that they were meet illuiions of theDivel and evil Spirits, fuch 
as himfelf could command by his art when he lifted , and was acquainted 
with , infomuch that we find him for this very caufc forfaking , or defirous 
to forfake Dr. T)ee^ who was much troubled about it; and is forced in a 
place to (P.w/i A^ Som/ unto him (to ufe his own words) that it was not io, 
andt^at they were good Spirits fent from God in great ravourunto them. 
But fofall this Kelley would notbefatisfied, but would have his Declarati- 
on or Proteftation of his fufpition to the contrary entred into the book . 
which you fhall find, and it wiU be worth your reading. I could further

allcdge, that if- a man conlideis the things delivered here upon fcveral occa- 
iions, being of a different nature, (bme Moral, (omePhyfical, fome Me- 
taphylical, and Theological of higheft points (though romecimcs wild e- 
nough, and not warr^ ntable j yet for the mod part very remote from vulgar 
capacities} he will not eafily believe that i\eiley^ who fcarce underftood La-

tookhimfcif to theftudy of Logick long after he had entred himfelf into 
this couric , could utter fuch things : no, nor any man living perchance, 
that had not made it his ftudy all his life-time. But that which muft needs 
end this quarrel (if any man will be pertinacious) and put all things out of 
doubt, is, that not I'\clley only ferved in this place of Seer or Skrye/\ but o- 
thers alfb , as his fon Arthur^ and in his latter dayes, when t\(lley was cither 
gone or lltk, one "BartholomeTi^j as will be found in all the Jfliom a.nd Ap- 
paritions of che year 1607. which (as I fulped-) was thelaft year of theDo- 
dbors life, or beyond which I think he did not live long. 

Secondly^ It may be objed:cd , or ftuck at Icaft, How Dr. Dee^ fb good Co 
innocent, yea, fo pious a man, and fo fin cere a Chriftian as by thefc pa- 
pers fhis delufion and the efFcd:s of it ftill excepted) he doth feem to have

(even to his dying day, for ought we know) as he is hnrt hy his ownrela* 
tion (ct out unto us ? Truly, if a man fiiail coniider the whole carriage 
of this bufineflc, from the beginning to the end, according tj this true and 
faithful (for I think I may lb Ipeak with confidence) account of it here 
prcfented unto us , this poor man, how from time to time fhamefully , 
giofly delayed, deluded, quarrelled without caufc, ffill toled on with fome 
fhetfvs and appearances, and yet ftill fruftrated and put off: his many- 
pangs and agonies about it, his fad condition after lomany years toil, tra- 
vel , drudgery and earneftexpedation, attheverylaft (as appeireth by the 
AtliQus and apparitions of the year 1607.) I cannot tell whether?I Oiould make 
him an objed; ot more horror or compaffion ,- but of both certainly in a 
great meaflue to any man that hath any fenfe of Humanity, and in the ex- 
amples of others of humane frailty : and again, any regard of parrsand 

worth, fuch as were in this man in a hii^h decree. True it is, that he had

yo)i«i wi thai and comforts, imaginary ,delufory , it is true; yet fuch as he en- 
joyed and kept up his heart, and made him outwardly chearf ul often times , 
I make noqueifion ; luchasthe Saints (as they call themfelves ) and Schtf- 
matich of thefe and former times have ever been very prone to boaft of, per- 
fwading themlelves that they are the ejfeHs of Gods blelTed Spirit. B ut even 
inthele his joys and comforts, the fruits and fancies of his deluded foul (as 
m many othersof adiftcmperedbrain) is not he an objed: of great compaf- 
paflion to any, both fober and charitable ? If this then were his cafe indeed, 
what fliall u'e fay ? if nothing elle, I know not but it ought to latisfie a 
rational, iober, humble man: If we fay, That it is not in man to give an

to the judgment of humane reafbn, becaufe it is againft all Reafon as well as 
Religion, to believe that a creature fo much inferior to God,by nature as man 
is fhould lee every thing as he ieeth,and think as he thinks j and confequent- 
ly'judgeand determine inandof all things as God judgeth and determineth. 
The Apoftle therefore not without caulc , would have ail private judg- 
ments (for of publick for the maintenance of peace and orjer among men, 
it is another calc)deferr'd to that time, when the hearts of all menjhall be laid open^ 
ail hidden things and Jecret counfels feveakd. But we have enough to fay in this 
caie without it. For if 'Pn^^and Qirioftty were enough to undoe our firft 
Parent, and in him all mankind, when otherwile innocent, and in pof- 
leOionof Paradife. Should we wonder if it had the lame event in Dr. 
Dee 'though otherwife, as he doth appear tons, innocent, and well qua- 
lified? That this w^as his caie and error, I will appeal to hisownconfef- 
iion (though he makes it his boaft) in more then one of his Letters orad- 
drefles, where he profeCfeth , That for diyers years he had been an earnejl Juter un- 
to God in prayer for Wifdom-^ that is, as he interprets himielf. That he might un- 
derfland the fecrets of Is.ature that had not been reVeakd unto men hitherto ; to the 
end ashe profedeth, and his own deceitful heart it maybe fuggefted un- 
to him That he vvght glorlfe God-^ but certainly, that himfelf might become 
a, vlorious man in the worfd, and be admired, yea, adored every where almoft, 
as hernight befureitjivould be, had hecompalTed his delire. And what 
do wethmk fliould put him upon fuch a defire, with hopes to obtain it, 
but an opinion he had of himfelf as an extraordinary man, both for: parts ^ 
and for favour with God ? But however , had he been to the utmoft of what 
he could think of himfelf, befides his Spiritual pride of thinking io of 
himielf (as great a fin as any in the eyes of God ) his praying for fiich a 
thing with fo much importunity, was a great tempting ot God, anddeferv- 
ine <Treatefi: judgments. Had he indeed been a Inter unto God for fuch 
Wijdom2.s,thc Prophet Jim/j/c defcribeth ( ii.v.i^^z^.) Let not the Wfeman

as our Saviour commandeth , 'joh.vj.-^. ^nd this is life eter?ial^ that they may 
knol}? thie^tcc. And his blelfed Apoftle ( i Cor.i t.i.) For 1 determined not to 
know any things &c. he had had good warrant for his prayers, and it is very 
likely that God would have granted him his requeft, fo far as might have ' 
concerned his own falvation and eternal happinefs. Befides, it is lawful, 
(nay fit) for a man to pray for Gods blefiing upon his labours, for com- 
petency of wit and capacity that he maydo well in his vocation and glori- 
fie God. But for a man to afpircto fuch eminency above other men, and 
~by means that are not ordinary (as that conceited fhylo/ophers Stone ^ and the 
like) and to intereft God by earneft folicitations in his ambitions extrava- 
gant defires; that God, who hath faid of himielf, l%it here fijieth the proud ^ 
but giVeth grace untt the humble , muft needs be fo great and fo high a provoca- 
tion (if well confidered) ^s that I begin to doubt whether it be charity to 
pity him that fuffered fo juftly and defervedly. 1 do not know but it is 
as lawfuU few: any man obfcurely born to pray tor a Kingdom ,- for a 
Common Souldier that he may have ftrength to encounter thoulands, or 
f<ir an ordinarie Maid , that flie may become the faireft of women. In

gether the fame, yet not lefs ftrange and dreadful. Such examples Ecclefiafiir 
cal Story will afford,and other books of that nature, but I have them not at 
this time, and I conceive I have faid enough to this particular. 

But of his ^rayiio too, fomewhat would be obferved. His Spirits tell him 
romcwi?erc,thathehadthe Gift of Graying. Truly I believe he had, a^it is 
ordinarily called : that is, that he could expVefs himlelfvery fluently and ear- 
neftly in Prayer,andthat he did it often to his own great contentment. Lee 
no man wonder at this,- I havs, riiuwcd elsewhere that Ibme that have been 
very wicked, yea, fome that dyed for blafphcmy, and with blalphemy in 
their mouth to the laftgafp, have had it in a great meafure, and done m^uch

beft things of the world (and what better and more heavenly then prayer well

ihcmfclves at their prayers, which ignorant deluded people think to be an 
argument of the Spirit : It io ^cxiaiii,and is a myftcry of nature that hath(*may 
I ipeak it without bragging ) been brought to light ( of late years at 
leaft) by my felf and fully dilcovercd , *That not only the inward heat of 
" mental conception (where there is any vigor) but alio the mufick of ^ut- 
*' ward words, is able to occafion ic. Indeed it is a point that doth deferve 
to be wellconfidcredof in thefe times efpecially. For when young boyes 
and illiterate men (and the number is likely toincreale now that CattcUzing 
is fo much negleded) are turned loofe toexercife thcmfelvesin this gift (as 
they call it) and when by long practice they have attained to fome rcadinefs 
and volubility jWhich doth occafion fome inward lightfomenefs and excita- 
tions, or perchance lomcwhatthat may have lomc relemb lance to fpiritual 
Ibrrow and compunction, they prefently think themfelvesinfpiredj and lb 
they become Saiuuht^oxt they know what it is to be Qlnjliam. And if 
they can Pray by inspiration, why not Preach alfo ? So comes in Ambaptifm 
by degrees, which willbetheruine of all Religion and civil Government 
where ever it prevails . And I believe that this fond foolifh conceit of Tnfpi- 
ration^ as it hath been the occafiou of much other mifchief, fo of that horrid 
facriledge , fl\all I call it, or profanation ( I hope I may do either with- 
out ofiPence, for it is not done by any pubhck Authority that I know 
of) thecafting andbanifhing of The Lords Prayer out of manypri- 
rate hou fes and Chuiches; then which, I think, Chrift never received a 
greater alf: ont from any that called themlelves Chriftians. I am not fb uno'ia- 
ritable as to believe that it is done in dire(5b oppofition to Ghrift by any re- 
al Chriftians, but in a furious zeale by many, I believe, againft let prayers. 
But this is not a place to difputc it : Certainly , as the Lords Prayer is a 
Prayer of moft incredible comfort. to them that ufe it devoutly and upon 
good grounds (a good foundation of Religion and found Faith, I mean) fb 
I believe that fct Prayers in general are ot more concernment to the fct- 
ling of Peace in the Commonwealth then many men are aware of. 
But let this pafs for my opinion; there be worie I am lure thAt pals •

Again, A man may wonder (I cannot tell whether an objedion may 
be made of it) that Dr. Dec, though he were at the firft deluded f to which 
his own pride and prefumption did expofe him ) as many have been ; 
yet afterwards in procefs of time when he found himfelf fb deluded and 
fhufHed with j when Edward i^elley did ufe fiich pregnant arguments to 
him (as he did hiore then once) to perfwade him that they were evil Spirits 
that appeared unto them ^ nay,when he had found by certam experience, that 
his Spirits had told him many lies, foretold many things concerning Princes 
and Kingdoms , very particularly limited with circumftances of time , 
which when the time was expired did not at all come to pafs j yet for all 
this he durft pmn his Soul for them that they were good Spirits , and con- 
tinued in his confidence ( fb farre as our Relation goes) to the hi\. I

Infidels that had u(ed the Lords Trayer^ as fbme have done in our dayes, as 
appcArsby whatheiaith of it in more then one place) there lived one Micha- 
el btifeiim, who applying to himfelf fome place of the ^pocalypfe ^ took up- 
DQ. him to Prophecy. He had foretold that in theyear of the Lord 1555. 
before, the zgo't September the end of the world, and Chrifls coming to

iMtJxt himfelf was fomewhat ftartled at the firft. But that day pall, he came 
;^ fecond time to Luther with new Calculations, and had digefted the whole 
bulincfs into zz. Articles, thecffe^of which was to demonftrate chat the 
end of the world would be in OBokr following. But now LMf/;(fr thoughc 
he had had tryal enouglp, and gave fo little credit to him ^ that he 
(though he loved the manj filenccd hiiTwfor a time-, whichour Apocalyp- 
tical Prophet took very ill at his hands, andwondred much at his incredu- 
lity* Weil, that moneth and lome after that over, our Prophet ( who had

•to find him ol another mind. But fo yfar was he from acknowledging his 
error, that he down right railed at LMf/;er for giving him good counlcl. And 
Xome write that to his dying day (having lived to cheageof 80. years) he 
never recanted. And was not this the cale of learned rojtc/my, who fallen 
into fome grievous wild fancies in his latter daycs, though found enough 
flill in other things , could never be reclaimed though means were ufed 
from time to time the beft and gentleft (in refpedto his worth and perfbn ) 
that could be thought of? But what talk we of particular men ? Con- 
fider che Anaha^tijh in s^cnev^}. Above an hundred years ago chey croybled 
Germany \ cry much: it coft many thoulands their lives. They roved up and 
down. No looner deftroyed in one place but they fprung (whilefl: that lea- 
Ibn laftcd) in another. Their pretences every where were the fame • (?^«-. 
Velations and the Spirit : the wickednefs ot Princes and Magiftrates , and 
Chrijljijiis to he jet up in his Throne. Well, at la ft they were deftroyed in moft 
pl^es. Stories of them have been written in all Languages, read every 
where, and their lamentable end. Can all this hinder but that upon every 
opportunity ol a confuted and confounded Government, they ftarc up a- 
gain m the fame Ihape and form as before ; the fame pretences, the (ame Scri- 
ptureSjfor all the world,milerably detorted and abuled, to raiie tumults and 
ledicions in all places. Such is the wretchedncfs of man that is once out oE 
the right way of Rcalon and Sobriety. But withall we rauft (ay in this 
particular cafe of Dr. Vees^ though his obftinacy was great and marvellous, 
yet it muft be acknowledged, that great was i\iz diUgefKe and fubtility of his 
Spirits to keep their hold : and (ome things fometimes happened ( as his 
danger and prefervation about Cra'vefend^ when he firft , here related, went 
out of the Realm) very {lrangcly,and fuch was the unhappinels of his mif- 
applycd zeal, that he made a Providence of whatloever hapned unto him 
asnedehred. 

So much for Dr. Dee himfelf. But of his Spirits a greater queflion per- 
chance may be moved: If evil wicked, lyins Spirits (as we have reafon

by them here acknowledged, bat in fome places very Scholaftically fet out 
and declared' ? It fcemeth fomewhat contrary to reafon and as contrary to 
the words of our Saviour, Byery Kingdom divided agatn/l it /elf, Scc^ But 
firfl: to the matter of fad : The Divels we know even in the Gofpel did 
acknowledg, nay, in tome manner proclaim Chrift to be the Son of God : 
which is the main Article he did gonteft with Chrift by Scripture Autho- 
rity- and by S.*P^M/i teilimony, can transform hi mfelf, when he lift into 
an Anc^el of light. And in fome relations well atteftcd, of Pofleftions 
and publickExorcifms that have been ufed; wegnd the Divel often fpcak- 
ing by the mouth of women, vuha like a Monk out of the Pulpit , per- 
fwading to temperance, rebuking vices, expounding of myfteries , and the 
like then as one that were an enemy to truth and godlinels. Infomuch 
that fome have been ready to make a great myftery and triumph of it, 
thereby to convia Hereticksand Atheifts, in time, more effcdually , then 
they have been by any other means that have been uled hitheito : and af- 
cribincT the whole bufinefs not to the Divel himielf, but the great power 
and Providence of God^ as forcing himagainft his will to beaninftrumenc 
of his Truth. For my part, I fee cauie enough to believe that fuch things, 
the re contained at large, might come from the Divel ; that is, might tru- 
ly and really be fpoken by perfons poflefied and infpired by the Divel. 
But that they are impleyed by God to that end, I fhall not eafily grant. 
I rather fufped that whatioever comes from them in that kind, though it 
be good in it ielf, yet they may have a mifchievousend in it- and that I 
believe will Toon appear if they can once gaincfomuch credit among men 
as CO be believed to be lent by God to bear teftimony to the truth. A man 
.may fee fomewhat already by thole very Relations , and that account that is 
given us there. And therefore I do not wonder if even among the more 
Ibber Piipifts this projeit (as the relater and publiOier complaineth; hath 
found oppofition. The Divel is very cunning ; a notable Polititian. 5. 
^aul knew him fo, and therefore he ufes many words to fet out his frauds. 
Hecan lay. the foundation of aplot, if need be, ahundred years before the 
effeds fliali appear. But then he hath his end. It is not good truftingof 
him, or dealing with him upon any pretence. Can any man fpeak bet- 
ter then he doth by the mouth of Anabaptifts and Schifmaticks ? And this 
hewiil dofor many years together if need be, that they that at firft flood 
pff may be won by time. But let them be once abiolute maft^rs , and 
then he will appear in his own fhape. There is one thing which I Won- 
der much more at in thofe Relations I have mentioned , and that is, that 
the Divel himfclf fliould turn fuch a fierce accufer: of chepi that haVe 
ferved him fo long. Witches and Magicians. I know he aoth^here fo too 
in fome kind , in more then one place. He doth iii'uch inveigh agiinft 
Divels «nd all that have to do with them , Magicians, Sec. But that is 
in general only, or in IQlley's particular cale , upon whom he had a- 
notha: hold , which he made more reckoning of •, to-'wit , as he ap- 
peared 



The T^BFAC^' 



peared to them as an Angel of light. Any thing to maintain his interefl. 
there, and their good opinion of him ; for he had great hopes from that 
plot. But that he fliould purfue fb ridgedly particular men and women 
whom he had ufed fo long, to death, and do the part of an informer a- 
gainfl: them , may feem more like unto a Kingdom divided againft it lelf, 
but it is not our cafe here ; neither am I very well fatisfied , that whac- 
fbever the Divcl faith or layesto the charge of them by whol^ mouth he 
fpeaketk , ought to be received for good teilimony. Here it may hcWierim 
had fome reafon ,- for I doubt ibme have been too credulous. But this by 
the way fliall iuffice. 

That the Divel fliould lie often, orbe miftakenhimfelf, in his Troche- 
cieSj as by many particuiars of this Relation will appear , I wall not look 
upon that, as if any objediion could be mad^of it. But it may be won- 
dred , perchance , Dr. Dee being often in lb great "^anc of monks , that he 
did not know which way to turn^ what fhitt to make ; at which time 
be did alwayes with much humility addrefs hinafelf to his Spirits, making 
his wants known unto them • and the Divel on the other fide , both by 
his ownboalbng, and by the teftimonieof thole whocould not lie, having 
the goods of this world (though ftiU under God) much at his difpofing , 
and alwayes, as he feemed, very delirous to give Dr. 'Dee all polTible fatis- 
fa^lion ■ that in this cale , once or twice perchance excepted, when the 
Dr. was well furniilied (for which the Spirits had his thanks) at all other 
times he was flill , to his very great grief and perplexity , left to himfelf 
to fhift as he could, and fome pretence, why not otherwile fupplyed, cun- 
ningly deviled by them that were lb able, and to whom he was io dear. 
But I miift remember my felf ; I laid fo ablej but in fome places his Spi- 
rits tell him plainly. It was not in their power , becaufe no part of their 
Commilsion, or becaule it did not belong unto them (fuch as dealt with 
him,) to meddle with the Trcafurcs of the earth ; and (ometimes that 
they were things beneath their cognizance or intermedling. Of the diffe- 
rent nature of Spirits, we fliall lay ibmcwhat by and by^ that 'may have 
>^mc relation to this alio, perchance. But granting that the Divel gene- 
rally hath power enough both to find mony and to gratific with it where 
,he feeth caufe. Yet in this cale of Witches and Magicians, dired: or in- 
dire^^t , it w ttfiMm and obfaved by many as an argument of Gods great TroVidence 
oyer men^ that generally he hath not : It is in very deed a great Argument of a 
fuperiour over-ruling power and Providence. For it men ot all ptofef- 
fions will hazard (their Souls) fo far as we lee daily to get money and 
cftates by indired: unconfcionable wayes , though they are not alwayes 
Hire , andthat it be long oftentimes before itcomes,, and oftentimes prove 
thpir ruine^ even in this world, through many cafualties ; as alterations 
^.of times, and the like : what would it be if it were in the power of the 
.;P. to help every one that came unto him, yielding but to Inch and fuch 
r;;Condit!ons, according as they Cv^v^Ul agree i 

Hitherto I have confidered what I thought might be objeded by others- 
I have one obje^ion tnore, vvl.lca to me was more conlidcrable (as an obje- 
ction, I mean, not Co readily anfweredj then all the reft : Devils , we think

generally, boch by their nature as Spirits, and by the advantage of loijg 
experience Tavjery great advantage indeed in point of knowledgj cannot but 
have perfed knowledg of all natural things, and all fecrets of Nature, which 
do not require an infinite underftanding; which by that meafureofknoWc-r> 
ledge that even men have attained unto in a little time, is not likely to bf 
foneceflary in moft things. But left any man fhould quarrel at the word 
^erfeB becaufe all perfedion belongs unto God properly, it fhall fuificq^ 
t« fay, That the knowledge Divels have of things Natural and Humane- 
is incomparably greater then man iscapableof. If fo, how comes it tc>^ 
pafs that in many places of this Relation we find him ading his part rathe,^ 
as a Sophifter ( that I fay npt a Juggler) then aperfed Philofopher,- as -a 
Quack, or anEmpirick lometiimes, then a True, genuine Naturahft. And 
for language (nottofpeak oi his Divinity, which he might difguiie of pui-. 
pofc to his own ends) rather as one that had learned Latin by reading of bai;-:' 
barous books, of the middle age, for the moft part, then of one chat had beer^^ 
oi Augufiui his^ time, and Iq^ng before that. But that which is ftrangeft of all 
is, that as in one place the Spirits were difcovered by Ed. IQlley to fteal out of. 
Jqrippa or rnr/^ew«M4 (fo he thought at leaftj fo in divers other places, by thf; ' 
phrafe, and by the doctrine and opinions a man may trace noted Chymicat 
and Cabahftical Authors of later times j yea, (if Ibe not muchmiftaken) 
and fardceljus him(elf,that prodigious creature, for whom and againft whom 
fo much hath been written fince he livedj thefe things may lecmftrange, but 
I think they may be anfwered. Forfirft, we lay, ThcDivdis notambicious 
to fhew himfelf and his abilirie? before men, but his way is (fo obferved by 
many) tofithimfelf (for matter and words) to the genius and capacity of 
thofe that he dcalech with. Dr.D^?, of himfelf, long before "any Apparition, 
was a Cabali ftical man , up to the ears, . as I may lay 5 .as may appear to any 
man by his i\fo/Wi Hmogly^hka^ a book much valued by himfelf, and by him 
Dedicated at thefirft to Maxmilwit]it Emperor, and iince prefented (as here 
related by himlelf)to (]{odolphe as a choice piece. It may be thought fo by thofe 
who efteem luch books as Dr. FW, Dr. Jlabafier, and of late Gafarell^ and the 
liRe. For my part I have read him 5 itisfoon don, itisbutahttlebook : but 
I muft profefs that I can extrad no fcnfe nor reafon (found and folid) out of 
it: neither yet doth it feemto me very dark or myftical. Sure we are that 
thofe Spirits did a6l their parts fo well with Dr.Dcf, that for the moft part(in 
moft At^ions) they came off with good credit; and we find the Dr. every 
where almoft extolling his Spiritual teachers and inftruders, and prayfing 
God for them. Little reafon therefore have we to except againft any thing(in 
this kind) that gave him content, which was their aim and bufinel^s. 

Secondly ^l^zy^ If any thing relifh here oiTrithenmsoifaracdfusfix:iny^nc\\^ 
well may we concludc*from thence, that the Divel is like himfelf. This is the 
jrucft inference. It is he that infpired Tritbemius and Taracelfus^Scc. that (peak- 
cth here; and wonder yc if he fpeaks like them ? I do not exped that all 
men will be of my opinion; yet I fpeak no 'Paradoxes : I have both reafon 
and authority good and plaufible, I chink, for what I lay ; but to argue the 
cafe at large would be tedious. Of Irithmm fomewhac more atterwards will 
be faid. But we rauft go far beyond that time. A thoufand years and above,

what we have in Scdiger^ I know not 5 nor what part ic is Co often mentioned 
in this Relation. By what I have feen it doth appear to me a very fuperfliti- 
ous,foolifli, fabulous writing; or to conclude all in one word, Cabaliflical, 
fuch as the Divel might own very well, and in all probability was ftie author 
olF. As for that conceit of the tongue which was fpokeri by Muryi in Para' 
difc,wc have already laid that it is no late invention j and I make noquefli- 
on but it proceeded from the fame Author. Yea, thofc vety Chara6ters com- 
mended untoDr.D^-e by \i\s Spirits for holyandmyflical, and the original 
Charaders (as I take it) of the holy tongue, iLjy ^le no other ,for the moft pare 
but fuch as were fet put and publiflied long agoe by one Thefeiis Jmbrofits cue 
of Magical books,ashimrelf profcfTeth : you (hall have a view of them in 
■fome of the Tables at the c»dof the Preface. Some letters are the fame, others have 
much rcfemblace in the fubflance ; and in tranfcribing it is likely they might 
differ fome alteration. But it may be too the Spirits did not intend they fhould 
be taken for the fame, becaufe exploded by learned men, and therefore altered 
tht forms and figures of moft of them of purpofe that they might fcem new, 
and take the better. So that in all this the Divel is but ftill conftant unto him- 
felf,and this conftancy ftands him in good ftead,toadd the more weight and 
to gain credit to his Impoftures. Not to be wondred therefore if the fame 
things be found elfewhere , where the D. hath an hand. 

With Cabaliftical writings we may joyn Chymical^ here alfo mentioned m 
many places. I have nothing to fay to Gj;«//?rif as ic is meerly natural , and 
keeps It felf within the compafs of fobriecy.It may wel go forapartofPhylick,

my lelf have feen ftrange things done by it: and it cannot be denycd but the 
wonders of God and Nature are as eminently vifiblc in the experiments of 
that Arc as any other natural thing. Tlumver^itisnot improbable that diyers fecrets

not give him the power: So much to Mrdw^w/^ , out of my refpetfJ: to his

of the book to m.y Learned friend Dr.Windett before mentioned — . I am much 
confirmed in that opinion (of the Divel being the Author) by what I find of 
it in the bock which hath given me this occafion to Ipeak of it. Were there 
nutui.ig, vlic but the gr jIs and .impudent forgeries that have been ufed to com- 
mend it unto men, fome entituling the invention to yfdam himfelf, others to

fame end^and again the moft ridiculous and profane applying & expounding 
of Scriptures,a thing ufually done by moft that are abettors of it,thofe things 
■ were enough to make a man to abhor it. Sure enough it is,that not oply Dr. 
Z^t'e, but others alio who had part of that precious Tot^der brought unto them by 
Spirits^ and expeded great matters of it, were all cheated and gulfd (and I be- 
lieve it coft fome of them a good deal of money ; Ttince T{oj'emberg particular- 
ly) by thole Spiritual Chymifts. Let them confider of it that have been deal- 
ing in luch things as they fljall lee caiife. 



The Trefnce, 



So ilill wc fee, that in all thefe things, a'= we faid before, the Divel is not be- 
holding to others, (as might be(ufpc6tcd) but others ha\c been beholding to 
him: As for his Divinity, i nhighcft pomes, if he fpakc the truth, it was for 
his own ends, as we faid before : He can do it, who makes any quellion ? 
In contro\ crted points, wc may obferve, chat he doth fer've thefcene aod prefcnc 
occafion i and I make no queil;on,but had Dr. Dee^onc to Conjiantinople iZnd 
been entertained there with refpcd:, his Spirits there would ha\ c fliewed them- 
felves as good Mahometans^ as clfewhere good Roman Catholicks^ or Troteftants. 

We have fomewhere a very pretty Tale, (I would fay a curious Obfervation 
if I thought it true) concemingthenature of the Serpen tor Addar, handfomly 
cxpreflcdj how flie tra'neth her yong ones to fct them out abroad into the world 
that they may (hift for themfelv es. Twenty days, as I remember, are foent in 
that work: Now whether it be {^o really^, I cannot fay certainly, but I fufped: 
it. It is not in Ariflotle^ and I looked in Aldroi/andffs^ and I could not findc 
it: But whctheritbcfo or no, let no body wonder; forthis was the maner of 
Preaching formerly (and may be yet perchance in fome places) amiOng Monki 
and Fryars in great requeft. They would make a ftory of Man, or Bcafts, as 
they thought fit themiclves, and their Fancies belt ferved ; pretty and witty, as 
much as they could j whether it had any ground of truth, or no, no man re- 
quired ; Thc.moralization was good. If the Divel have done fo here it was 
not through ignorance (for he is too good a Naturalift; and I believe there is 
fomewhat even in Nature, though we know it not, why both in facred and pro- 
phanc H:ftory, Spiritsand Serpents are (b often joy ncd) of which is true and 
real; buias hath been faid, it Icrvcd his turn, and that is enough. And al- 
though, having confidcred it as an Objcdlion, how the Divel comethto fpeak 
fomuch truth, as will be found in this Book; no man, I think, will expcd I 
ftiould give an account of any falfc Doctrine or Divinity, that ic rqay 
contain: Yet one point I think fit to take notice of, and proteft againft it ; as 
falfe, erronious, and of dangerous confcqucnce , and that is, where ic is 
faid, That 4 wd« (in fome cafes) may kill another man (Vrinceor other") without 
apparent canfe, or lawful Authority, and therefore pnnifhable by the Laws of 
Man 5 who ne^erthelefs^ may expeB a great reward at the hands of God for his 
aB : H J w this may agree with the Principles of New Lights, and Anabaptifti- 
cal Divinity, I know not; it is very contrary to the Principles of that Ortho- 
dox Divinity, lately profcfTcd and cftabhfhed by Law in £«g/^ff^/. 

I have^now faid in this main Objediion, (as I apprehended it) what I think 
was molt proper and pertincnt,and I hope may fatiffie. But I have fbmewhat clfe 
to Dy, which in this cafe of Di'vels and Spirits in general, I think it \ery confi- 
derable, and may fatisfie perchance, in (omc cafts, where nothing elfe can. 
We talk of Spirits, and read of Spirits often, but I think it is \ery litde 
that we know (thebeft ofusall) of them, of their nature or dififercnces : And 
how then can it be expeded that we Aiould refolve all doubts ? And though I 
think it is not much that any man ever knew and rightly apprehended, or can, 
as he is a man, in this bufinefs ; yet my opinion is, (though I know it is much 
gainfaidand oppofed) that ancient Tlatonick Phylofophcrs of the latter 
times, underftood much more then moft ChriRians; I do not write this, 
as though I thought, or would have any thought by others to be the worfc 
ehrillians for being ignorant in thefe things ; but rather, in my opinion, any

caule it doth concern Relig'on in general, that we bdicc Spirits ; and when 
Objedtions arc made that cannot be anfwered, m.any arefcandaiized,and Athc- 
ifts ready to take the ad\ antage of it ; I fay, that it ftjould be no wonder to any, 
fober and rational, if we cannot refolve all doubts, fince it is fo httle that we 
know orcatiknow^ beyond the bare o'-r' in this matter: MoiliChriftians are 
bred in and to this opinion, that all Spirits, (fo commonly called) are cither An- 
<Tels of Heaven; or Di^ els of Hell: I know no Scripture for if, or dctennina- 
fion of any general Councel, that I remember, at this time at Icaft, and fo long 
I do notthink my felf bound againft apparent realon ; For the conceit of all eml 
Spirits or Di'vels being in'HeU, I think learned Mr, Meade hath tak^nthattQ 
task^ infome of hin Worfy, and fnfficiently confuted it : The very^ word Spirit, 
is 4 term of great Ambiguity ; We undcrlfand by it, commonly, fubftances,' 
that arc akoc^ether immaterial. Many of the ancient Fathers, it is well known, 
did not allow of any fuch at all, befidcs God : But we think that to have no vi- 
fible Body, and to be purely immaterial, is all one ;. God knows how many 
deforces there maybe between thcfc but we cannot know it; neither doth ic 
concern our falvation, for which we have reafon to praife God: But if ic 
were fo, that all Sj?/r/>j" are either Divels or Angels,, what Qiall we make of 
thcfc that are found in mines, of which learned As^ricola hath written ; of

their abfurd or fuperftitious Opinions in this Argument of Spirits: As they 
have fcarchcd farther into it then others (befides damnable experience, havino- 
confouiided Magickwith Phylofophy, yea ahr.oft turned all Phylofophy in-^ 
toMagick) fo it was confequent, they would fall into moreHrrors and Ab-

daily experience, .then what is comrtionly known or believed. Stnefms w^s 
a Bi&op, but as he doth appear to us in his Writings^, a better Platonick then 
a Chriftian : In a place (in his Treatifc De infotnniis) he fheweth how evil Spi- 
rits come to inhabit men, and to pofTefle their Brains: H s terms are very 
courfe, and apparantly ridiculous j but there ir.ay be fome truth in the Opini-

Joach. Camerarius (that worthy man before fpoken of ) in his Proemium tt) 

Tlmarch, DeOraenliSj d^c, hath a Ibange Story upon the credit of a friend of 

his whom he much rcfpected (as himfelf profcfleth) for his Piety and Wifdoin, 

AGKntleroan q{' Norlmbergh^d a Cryflal (how he came by ic/is there to be

what he defircd : No other but a Boy, fo qualifiedj could fee any thisig in it. 

This Qryftal became very faii^ous in thofe parts i yeafoJLc leafiicd men came 

to it tobefatisfiedin doubtful points, andhad their quel lions rcfolvcd : Yetat 

Uft, (as Well itdcfcrved) it was broken in pieces by Camerarius hh Friend. 

Many fiich flor'es are to be found of Magical Stones and Cryllals: And though 

VerneliuSi De abditis rerum caufis; and after him (as I rcn ember) one, in 

worth and cfteem of all men, not inferior to Fernelius, Dr. Har'vey-, I.;tcly de- 

ceafed, uirns the relation of a ilrange ftone brought to one of the late Kings of 

France, into an Allegory, or Phyficai explication of the power and proprieties 

of the Element of Fire j yet I am not fatisfied, but that the relation might be 

literally true : For fo it is, (as I remember here alfo, for I have none of thole 

Books by me at this time) related by Thuanus, and fo by feme othcrsj very 

learned, underilood. 

Nowforthemaner how he came byir, the particulars of the ftory cannot 
be had by this here prcfer/ed, butonely this in general, That it was brought 
unto hi;n by fomc, whom he thought to be Angels : So we findc him telling 
the Emperor J That the Angels of God had brought to him a Stone of that <value^ 
that no earthly Ki/rgdoin is of that worthinef^^ as to be compared to the fertue or 
dignity thereof. Page 171, in his conference with Dr. Curts, appointed by the 
Emperor to treat with him 3 andalfo let him fee the Jione brought me by Angeli- 
calMiniJiery : And we findc this Note recorded, [Prague, Tuefday 25 Sep- 
tembris. Invent to Dinner to the Spanifti Ambaflador, and carried with me the 
Stone brought me by an Angel, and the fourth Boob^ wherein the manerofthe 
bringing of it is exprejfed.] Aad for the ufe of the Stone, befidc-. what hath 
hten faid, this is obfervable : Some Spirits being in fight of JE. if. our of the 
Stone, Dr. Dee would have the Stone brought forth, butE. A", faid. He had 
rather fee them thus, out of the Stone; to which the Dodtor replies, That in 
the Stone they had warrant that no n?ich^d Spirits fhould enter ; but without the 
Stone iUuders might deal with them, unlej? God pre'vented it, ^c^ From which 
paffagc alfo we may learn, as from divers Withers in the Book that although the 
ftonc (as we faid before) was theplacc, in which, and out of which, ordinari- 
lyj moll; Apparitions were framed, yet it was not fo always ; For we (hall meet

with divers things in that kindc that wercfcen and heard^ withojt any reference 
to the Stone : From the fame place alfo wc may learn, that the faid Stone was 
the fame he alfo called the Sherv-Jione ; as in many places bcfides. However^ 
it is certain enough that he had more Stones then one, wh ch he accounted fa- 
cred j ohfcryM^rincipal Stone ^and this other Stone ; 'yifirji SanBifiedStone^ nfti- 
a I Sherv -ft 07^ ^nd Holy-ftone, itiay be thought oppcfed and different j but I 
underlland it otherv*jfc: This is the account wc can give of this principal 
Holy-Stone. And to liipply the defcdt of the mancr how it was brought to 
him, the Reader, if heplcafeymayfinde fomiefatisfa^tion, if he read the /;/<j«er 
hovp it rras tah^n away, andreftoredy very particularly fet down, as before (up- 
on another occafion) was obfervcd. 

Befidcsthis5'f(?«(;or5'/(7«ex, there are divers other facrcd things mentioned, 
that belongcd-coth'spcrfonatcd Sanduary, but nothing more frcqujpntly mien- 
tioncd then Curtains', a. Curtain or Vaily as it is fometimcs calico . A man 
would think at fir if, perchance, ihatit wasfomewhat outward, but it will be 
found other wife ; it was fecn in the Stone, and appeared of different forms and 
colours, as they that read will quickly finde. 

Next unto thcfcthc Holy Table is chiefly conCderable, ordcriiag of it is re- 
ferred to Dt'Dee, which hedarlt not take upon himfclf^ until he had war- 
rant from his Spiritual Teachers : This Table, which may well be called Ma- 
gical, is prefervcd and to befeen in Sir Thomas Cottons Library, (from whence 
we had thercR) and byhisleave ishcrcrcprefentcd inabrafs Cutj mention is 
made of it, as I take it, where Dr. D^e propofeth to hisTeachersj Whether 
}he Table (for the middle crofs of uniting the 4 principal parts') be madeperfeSi 
cr m : You may fee more of it, it is alfo called League Table, Table ofCo'venant, 
vtenfa foederis in fome piaces : " The Pedefial of it is mentioned in two or three 
places, and in:leed a very curious Frame belonging unto it-, yet to be fcen in the 
faid L'brary. But I know not what to make of that^ neither Nalu: nor the Ta- 
ble appeareth ', and the roundTable or Globe appeared not. I bciieve it imifl be 
underllood of fomcwhat that had appeared bcfo.re in the flone. The Reader , 
that will be fo curious, by careful reading may foon finde it out j I was not 
willing to bellow too much time upon it. 

But here remainetha main buhncfs whereof wc are to give an account to 
the Reader; There were many Tables or Schemes at the end of the Bock, 
containing Letters, a.b. e.&'C. difpofed into little fquares, with an Infcrip- 
tion over each Table in that unknown Charader (b.efore fpokenof) exprciled 
inufial Letters how it (hould be read^ There is one for a Specimen here at 
the end of the Preface ; the re!! wcreomitted^ becaufe it was judged needlefs, 
except it were to increafe the price of the Printed book. For firit, Dr. Dee 
himfclf though he took a great deal of pains to underftand tlie Myftcry of 
them, and had great hopes given him from time to time to reap the benefit 
(himfelf complains of it in more then one place) of his toilfome work and 
long patiei^ce, yet it never came to any thing : and if he made nothing of them 
(to benefit himfelf thereby) what hopes had we? Befides, we may judge of 
ihefe Tables, and all this myftery of Letters, by what we have fcen in others 
of the fame kinde. Johannes Trithemius was a man that was fuppofed by mo 11

The hnfirefs is. Dr. Dee was larely grown ii to great league and confederacy

Divcfsor Spirits : Wc have argued it^ Iconfefs^ pretty largely, at the beginning 
of this Pifcourfe or Freface, and I hope fbmcmay rccc ve competent iat sfa-

Scripture Authority, which would be impertinent againR Athe ih) I do not 
know what can be ir.ore con\ incing then this fad Story, (o exadily lo part cu- 
larly, fo faithfully delivered. Truly, they mull fee further r hen 1 do, that can 
finde what to an(wer (rationally) and to oppofc: This is agrcatpoint, and a 
great ground of Religion j bat this is not all ; For if thcrc^be Spirits mdccd, 
fo w eked and malicious, foftudious and fo induflrious, to delude men, and 
to do mifchicfj which is their end, all which is fo fully raprcfented in this Rela- 
tion; then certainly muft it follow, that there is a great oxer-rufng Power^ 
that takes care of the t archj and of the Inhab taiits of it ; of them efpecially 
that adore that Power, and worfliip it w th true afFedion and fmccrity : For 
without this over ruling Power, what a miferable World fliould we have } 
What man r^iober orinnoccnt, that could enjoy hinifelf atany tiracwithany 
comfort orfecurity ? Butagain, whatman can read this fad llory and can be Co 
pcrlwatiedof his own WiSom or innocency, but wili in fomc degree rcfledl

lizd before, fromlef. beginnings grcatefl: confufions had enfued, which is 
very true as in the cafe oC Bacchus particularly many A'^es before ; and in the 
cale of Mahomet afterwards ("two notable lewd Euthnftajis^ by whoiiiips Inftru- 
ments, e'vil Spirits, by God^ pcrmiflion, brought great alterations inGcvern- 
ments, and wroughtmuchmfchief andv llany amon^ Men and Women) we

aschirfly their confident and reiterated AddrcfTcs unto, and Attempts upon fo 
many great men in Power and Authority, and the like j I am much of op'nicn 
that thsfe Spirits had as great hopes of Dr. Pee, as ever they had of Bacchus or 
Mahomet. But God was not pie Jed at that tin e to permit that their malice and 
fubtiltyfliould prevail And I chii k, if we confident well, we havercafon to 
pra fc God for it. England might have been over-run with Anabiptifin (when 
I fay Anabaptifm, I mxan Anabaptifm confirmed and in full power, notasitap- 
peai s in its firft pretentions) long before this : God be thaakcd that it was not 
then and God keep it from it ftill, I hope is the Prayer of all truly fober and 
Religious And in very deed I know no reafon, but the XY'^ildom and prudence 
of the r iMlijefties CounccI thatthen w^re, inoppofing Dr. JD^e/ frequent ad-

diatclyj there is no queftion, but he doth by his Minifters and Inftru- 

ments much more, more ordinarily and frequently I mean : Let any man 

luuge then, whether it be the part of a fober wife man, not onely to hear 

fuch menascangivenoaccount of their calling, but alfo to follow them, 

to embrace their Do6lrinc, to be of their number or Congregation j and 

all this, upon this account, becaufe they can pray and preach very well, 

(as they think and judge at leaft) and talk very godliiy and zealoufly > 

How much more inexculable they that will clea c unto (uch, though they 

fee and know them fcandalous in their Lives, Proud, Infolent, Ignorant, 

Seditious, Intolerable, becaufe they can pray, and preach, and talk, as 

beft agreeth with their own humor, and gives them beft content ? Can 

any man think they follow God in this, who would have all things clone 

in order^ and is not di Cod of Confufien, (i Cor. 14. 35,40.) when all they 

do tends to nothing elfe but diforder and confufion ? 1 confefs it is pofli- 

b'e, that men lawfully called may prove bad enough, vse have divers cx- 

amplesin the Scripture But if a man, fimply and ignorantly be mif-Ied 

by fuch, certainly his judgement will be much lighter then they can ex- 

peS:, who will not ufe the means that God hath ordained, in fo great 

and weighty a bufinefs as the falvation of i'ouls is. I know not what thefc 

men can fay for themfelvcs, except it be, that they are refolvcd to make 

ufe of the Liberty of the times to pleafe their humor j they may do it, but 

if that bring them to Heaven, they have good luck. 

But the bufinefs of praying, is that I would principally in fift upon : 
You fee here how Dr. Dee, where he gives an account of hinifelF to the 
Emperorj and others, bears himfelf much upon tW^, that fo many year* 
he had been anearneft Suitor unto God by Frayer to obtain JFifdafi^fach 
wifdom^she wasambitiojs of. I believe him, that he had prayed very 
earncftly, and witK much importunity many times: This was the thini^j 
that made him fo confident of his Spirits, that they mufl: needs be good 
Spirits and Angels. 1 know a man, I have no comfort to tell it, but that 
I would not conceal any thing that m.ay be a warning unto others, and yet 
I will have a refpev2: unto him too.- But I knew ohe,a very innocent man(in 
his outward converfation, and as I believe very really) Humble, Religious, 
very Learned and Orthodox, and one that had fuffered for his Confci- 
ence, as others have done in thefe times: This worthy man, being en- 
gaged in a controverted Argument, upon which hisphancy had wrought 
very much, or rather which had much vvrought upon his phancy ; he 
had written much, filled much Paper, and was defirous to communicate 
unto me as his friend what he had done: But when I perceived that the 
drift* of his writing was out of the Law and the Prophets, to (hew the ne- 
cefljty of fome things which I thought of a more indifferent nature i I 
was not willing to meddle with it; and begun to argue againft his main 
drift, and to (hew my difliking. After many words to and fro, he be- 
gan to prefs me with this, that he had often prayed with much earneltnefs, 
and he vyas very confident that God had heard his Prayers: Yea, he pro- 
ceeded fo far, that if God were true, he could not be deceived, and ufcd 
many other words to the fame purpofe, at which I was much amazed, but

coulddonogood upon him, fiich was his confidence and violence upon 
thisoccafion, though otherwife a very moderate ingenuous man: And 
thus I found him more then once, or twice. Truly, I think God was ve- 
ry merciful unto him, that took him away in good time. But certainly this 
bufincfs of Frayer aiidpraifing^ is a bufincfs as of great comfort (the greateft 
that mortal man is ca-pabJe of upon earth) fo of much more danger and 
d lufion , then many do believe. And if caution and circumfpedion be to 
be ufccl in any thing that belongs to Religion, I think it ought in Prayer, 
as much as any thing. And fince I have adventured to tell one llory upoa 
mine own credit, I will t 11 one more upon better authority, which I have 
long defired (for the obfcrvablenefs of it) to conmunicate unto the 
world, and to tharend, had once inferred it in a Treatifeof nine, which 
I thought would have been Printed, but it was not : I will firll; give tha 
Englifli of it, that all men may reap the benefit, and then fet it down in 
the words of my Author (mmQ0\^'n¥2it\iQvIfdacCafauhcn^ of b.m^ as I

At a Co?ififtory in Geneva, upon a Friday, i8 July, J $ 89. the cafe of one 
Mr. Nicholas hei??g there propofed to the Affemhly to be confidered of who was 
vpont to infiny^atc himfelf into pri'vateUoHJes^ jt?;der pretence of praying, and 
madefnull congregations : Jhc bufincfs rvas dijliked by the Vaftors i ^irji, be- 
caiife nothing in the Church of God ought to be done without order. Secondly, be^ 
caufe to turn fnch duties of Religion to matter of Traffick to get money onely, 
(without any other endor calling') was not lawful. Thirdly andlaflly, hisbatta- 
fogyy (or vain repetition of words) was fiot tobefuffered: Then upon this oc 
cafionitwas related by Mr. Beza, that the Saturday beforey Tvhilefithat (ha^p

anfweredy No : What, do you thinks 1 do behold thefe things rvith mine eyes onely > 
and do not pray to God in my heart ? Gz-vingtbis reajonfor his anfwer he had 
mad: to the Woman : [It is nor fo expreii^d in the Latine, that the fofow-

apply himfelf untOj (or to undertake) ivithont due preparation: And that they 
were deceived, who thought it foeafe a thi?tgto pray rightly : And that care alfo 
Jhouldbe taken left [underacolour of zeal and devotion] a way be made to

In the lad place. All men may take warning by this example, how they 
put.thcmfclves outof the protcdion ot Almighty God, either by prefum- 
ptuous unlawful wiflies and defires, or by feeking not unto Divels onely, di- 
rc£ily (wi ich Dr. Dee certainly never did, but abhorred the thought of it 
in his heart) but unto them that have next relation unto Divels, as Witches, 
Wi'Xj'z^ards, Conjurers, JJirologers^ (that take upon them to foretell humane 
events) Fortune- tellers ^ and the like, yea and all Books of that fub;c6l', 
which I doubt, were a great occafion of Dr^ Dees delufion : That men are 
commonly di atcd by fu(h, is furc enough; and thofe that arc not 
very fools, would take heed how they deal with them, and avoid them, 
to avoid the Imputaiion of Fools ; but thofe that are wife , much 
more, if they can more then cheat ; for the more they can do, the more 
they know they have of the Divelm them : Wretched people ! that will 
not, dare not trull God, who as he is the onely fountain of goodnefs, fo 
onely knows what is good for every mani They may rejoycefor a time, 
and applaud themfelves in their conceited fuccfifes, butmifery, if they re- 
pent not, will be their end ; and it is a great fign that God is very angry 
with them, when he doth fuffer them to thrive by means which Himfelf 
hath cur fed*

FOSljt RIPT. 

Since this Preface Was written, and almoft printed, I was fliewcd a Book, entituled, TheatrnmChe- 
inkum Britanntcrtm, &c. by EhoA Afl)mole Efq; and in fomc Annotations there, at the end, an account 
concerning Dr. Di?e and fii*. Kellcy^ (there (tiled Sxt Edmard Kelley) out of a Dt.iryoi Dt.Deesy all 
written with his own hand : As I do not queftion the Gentlemans fidelity in this bufinefs, fo I make as 
little queftion but Dr. D«'s own hand will be found to agree in all matters of Fad both here and there, 
if any fhail take the pains tocompare. And it may be the Reader may receive fome further fatisfaftion 
in fomc particulars by his labor, which is the reafon that I mention the Book here, being but lately come 
to my knowledge ; His Judgement either concerning Dr. D€e^ or Kelley, I meddle not with ; andic 
may be, had he leen what is here to be feen, he would have been of another opinion in fome things* 
Here is enough, I am lure, to fatisfic any man that is not very much preoccupied, or otherwife engaged 
by particular ends. As for thofcif-/?o;rj concerning /C(?//if7, ('fomc whereof concern Dr. D^e alfo) he 
tells us of, as I believe him, that he hath heard (o, (o I muft (and may truly) profcfs, that I have met with 
far contrary, and in my judgement, and by this account here given us by Dr. Dicy much more proba- 
ble .- And particularly, that Kelky was put in PrKon by the Emperor, for a notable Chymica! cheat that 
he had put upon him ; the particulars vvhereof, though they were fully related unto me, yet I will not 
adventure upon, left I miftakc in fomc terms of art, or petty circumftance of fad. And let the Readec 
judge by that account. Dr. Dee (who belt knew) doth give us here throughout the whole Book of this 
Kelley, whether iVevers Story in his Fmerd MonKm. f<*g. 45, 415. of darrnable Necromancy , and other 
. Dialfelic.il (^enjuration^ pradiied by Kelley in Lancafhlre^ be not (bcfidcs what is there faid and attcftcd) 
much more probable, then any thing that hath been or can be (aid by others, to his juftification or com- 
mendation : Which indeed doth make Dodor Vet's cafe altogether inexcufable, that believing and know- 
ing the man to befucha one, he would have to do with him, and expeded good by his Minifteries ; but 
that the Dodor his Faith, and his intellcdualls (through Gods juft judgement, as we have faid) werefo 
much in the power and government of his Spirits, that they might perfwade him to any thing, under 
colour of doing fervice unto God, yea had it been to cut his own Fathers throat, as wc fee in tbe Rela- 
m»,that they perfwaded him to lie with another mans Wife,and profticute his own to a vile,and, by liim- 
felf bclived, Diabolical man. 

Befides, I have been told by many, that Dr. Dee, very poor and every way miferabie, dyed at Mon- 
lack.^ here about Z-aWi7», which doth not feem to agree with the report in thofe .i*;?^^^*!"^^/ : Eute- 
nough of them : Neither indeed have I faid any thing at all of purpofe to oppofc the Author, but to 
give this further fatisfadion to the Reader, or rather to the truth, which I thought I was bound to do. 

The pafTage in Wevers Funeral C^tonmncnts, pag. 45, 46. concerning Kelley^ for their fatisfadion 
that have not the Book, is this; Ketley, (otherwife called T^/^ar) that famous £«^/i7S Alchy mill of out 
times, whoflyingoutof h's own Gountrey (after he had loft both his ears at Lancafter) was entertain- 
ed by .S»i5!o/p/; the fccond, and iaft of that Chriftian name. Emperor oi Cjermany ; for whom Eliz^abeth 
offamous memory, fent( very fecretly) Captain Teter Gwyn, with fomc others, to perfwade him to return 
back to his own Native home, which he was willing to do ; and thmking to efcape away in the night, by 
ilealth, as he was clammei ing over a Wall in his own Houfe in Pragne (which bears his name to this day, 
and fometimcs was an old Sanctuary) he fell down from the Battlements, broke his leggs, and bruifed 
his body, of which hurts within a while after, he departed this World. 

Sedqmrfptmhac} youwillfay : Then thus, This DiaboHcalqueftioningofthe dead, for the knowledge 
of future accidents, was put in pradice by the faid Kelley, who upon a certain Night, in the Park of 
Waltoninle dale, in the County of Lamafter, with one Paul iVaring, (his fellow- companion in fuch 
Deeds of darknefs) invocated forae one of the Infernal Regiment, to know certain paflages in the life, 
as alfo what might be known by the Divels forefight, of the manner and time of the death of a Noble 
yongGentleman, as then in Wardfhip. The Black Ceremonies of that Night being ended, Kelley 
demanded of one of the Gentlemans fcrvants, what ("<?>■/(? was the la(t buryedin I-^jj' Church-yard, a 
Church thereunto adjoyning, who told him of a poor man that was burycd there but the fame day .- He 
and the faid JVaring, intreated this forefaid fervant to go with them to the Grave of the man fo lately 
interred, which he did ; and withal, did help them to dig up the Carcafe of the poor Catiff^ whom by 
their Incantations, they made him (or rather fome evil Spirit through his Oigans) to fpeak, who deli- 
vered ftrange Predidions concerning the faid Gentleman. I was told thus much by the faid Serv'-^-man, 
a Secondary Actor in that difmal abhorred bufinefs ; and divers Gentlemen and others are now living in 
Lancashire, to whom he hath related this Story. And the Gendeman himlelf (whofe memory I 
am bound to honor) told me a little before his death, of this Conjuration by Kelley^ as he had it by re- 
lation from his faid Servant and Tenant, onely fome circumttances excepted, which he thought not fitting 
to come to his Mafters knowledge.

hit fpirits had promifed him, p. 34. addition of 
many years ) not long before hit death. I can~ 
not yet learn the direS time of hit death : but 
much about this time, (^ by all reports :) and in 
England, certainly. Though hit fin yf as very 
great ( as in the Preface is (hewed .-J y^t becaufe

INfteadof other Approbation : the Reader ( befides the judgement Of the late Arch-Bijhop of Ar- 
magh : for his Piety and Learning fo famous everywhere ; fpoken of in the Treface, firft page 
of it : and the judgement of divers others, that read the Book M anufcript,and wi(hed it printed :) 
may confidcr, how lollicitous the Devil hath been, when he faw his plots ( God oppofing ) not like- 
ly to take effcft; that tliefe Myfieries ( thefe Papers and Records ) might not come to light. Firft, 
by p. 418. and p, 431. (Doftbr jpfe's Letter to the Popes Nuncio) and forae other places of the 
Book, it doth appear, that they were all btrnt, by command; though feme afterwards ( upon ap- 
pearance of better hopesj ftrangely reftored again. Again, Part II p. 21, is that horrible impre- 
cation; w hereof more in the T^/i/e. Laftly, thefe remaining Papers and Records, here exhibited, 
were under ground, God knows how long: and fince that, though carefully preferved, were even 
at the very laft, when the worthy Owner took care, and was at the coft to have them tranfcribed : 
aiid fo at the laft, ( not unluckily, I hope for the publick good : ) they fell into my hands.

She The abufing of his Glorification made him a Devil : So the abufing of the good- ADevll, 

nefle of God toward this man, may make him a Devil. 

The workj of the Spirit quicken ; the doings of the Flejh lead unto dejlrpMion. Art thou offend-

lively and bath a quickening Spirit in it for ever. Indeed thou art ignorant , and therefore thou art 
fufficiently plagued : thy lofi thou boafi thy felf and fay. This / can do?

if thou wilt not be counted a Devil.

When the Sun fljinetk I will appear am.ngft yon ; when it Is f aid Came:, lo I am ready. The dayes of

For herein is the Creation 0/ Adam with his tranfgreffion. Th^ Vignity and wifdom he had. 
The Errour and horror wherein he was drowned, yea herein is the power fpread of the highejl 
wording in all Creatures, 

For as there is a partioiil-*r Sonl or fire infiamiMg u»to every body ( I mean reafonable ) So there 
is an Vniverfal fire and a general hrightneffe giving general light unto thnn, which is but One^ and 
Jhineth through the whole, yea is meafured equally unto every thingfrom thebeginntHg. 
The life of all things is here kjzown : 
The reward of death to thofe that are rewarded for life. 

iSlone are rewarded but according to their deferts : of the which there are two kinds. 
I Ihefe are rewarded with death for their wickednejfe. 
2. So are they rewarded with life for their coniant living. 
Among]} the Angels there way be err our y and fin may make them fall fnm the hrightneffe of their

But to the Soul of man ( being once glorified ) firiis utterly, yea woft largely oppofite : Neither

Whatfoiver hath heen from the beginning X fixce it was faid in Divine Determittatiom, Be it

Therefore Ihould this day he Hallowed and Sanctified before the Lord by you. 
, for if the Prophets , did worfliip this day of his afcenfion , much more ought you (which 

have tailed of the firji, end (kail now tafle of the fecrets of his Judgements ) glorifie his coming : 
Satan, But with you Satan is bufie j His briftles ftand up, his featljers are caft abroad. 

Therefore watch and pray ; For thofe that go to Banquets put on their upper garments. Ammgji 
you therefore is no found belief ; Neither do youconftder the fcope of this bleffrdneffe : Butfuch 
is tljegreatneffe and excellency of his forekjiowledge,that he fuffereth the enemy to carry a burden, 
yea fometimes to preach upon a Stage : For it is faid, Hejhall triumph unto the end, and flare 
himfelf here as he would have done above ; Neither fl^all he he thruji out of doors till the end be 
determined. Therefore watch and pray, and look, about with diligence ; for thofe things Jhall he 
opened unto you which have no t been difclofed unto the Holy Ones.

He Willed E. K. to fpeak^ to me, and to tell me of hk being there : But he refufed, and exprefly de-

(being every Monday) till the aftions vveie ended : and therefore he fuppofed this Creature 
tobe an illuder, and partly he urged fome evident token, or proof of their well-meaning to-

A, Upon the pending and examining, this prayer G'tbriel revealed unto us, I found certain 
imperfections, and fome'doubts, wherein we thought it good to ask counfel, and require G<r- 
briePs advife : That the prayer might be perfeft,as he might well like of to Gods honour and 
our comforts. At the length : Nothing appearing to the eye, but the noife of a found about 
E. K. his head, and withall a mighry weight , or mvilible burden on his right ftioulder , as 
he fate in the green Chair,by the holy Table,or place : And unto certain places of the prayer, 
which I noted and repeated, thofe words, and anfwers were by G^zirie/ given. 

Gab. ., ..Jhe Preface niuji be in, for if our hearts be not prepared unto prayer jOur prayers are 
in vain. 

Quid differs Domine, Cor meum in melius Comfortarc, 

Per te & in nomine tuo reflirganj ; id eft, Halleluja. 

The firii way is myre effeCtual. Say Angele race , but the other is more effeSualy Cura me 
fanuni. Regard me, and look^unto me, beingwhole. 

A. As concerning the infcription, which I have written before the prayer : I would gladly 
know, whether it be to your well liking of it. 

Gab Fiant omnia ad laudem Dei. My doings are of no fuch regard : What I have done 

he it dene, fo that your additions be to the honour of God^it is fufficient. The efFeft of his prayer 
is greater, then is the form. The former is greater then the forming. That is to fay, he that 
bath formed it, is mightier then any virtue, wherein it is formed. Wherefotver, therefore the mind 
formethit with you with perfe^ humility and confent, there is alfo the former. As formed of him 
therefore, I leave you to the end of his workjnanjhij) , which continually formeth all things according 
to his own fajhion. 

Sins Your fins have banijhed me, from faying thofe things I would. 

A. O cleanfe our hearts, and wafh away our lins, amplius lava me ab iniquitate mea & a pec- ■" 

cato meo mimda me. 

Gab Sins are never wafhed away, or forgotten with the higheji , but with fuch as are forry, 

and alfo make facisfaftion. Satisfaaion. 

Lird, full forry I am for my fins, ani what fatisfa^ion is ... required I would gladly kjiow> 

Gab The offence was not thine. Every one mi.li fatisfie, or elfe he fhall be damned. 

A. Good Lord expoimd to us the myflery of fatisfaftion. 

Gab When the Soul ofendeth , and is cbnfenting to wickfdnejfe , he is then to makj a fpiri~ 

tual fatisfa&ion, which is the end and perfeU fruit of Contrition. For thofe that are truely Con' 
trite, do true ly fatisfie. Another fatisfaUion there is, which is externil. This fatisfa&ion is to 
he made for fins committed againji thy Neighbour : For if thou offend thy Neighbour , and do him 
Vrong, or takjf any thing fiom him, by fraud, or violence., it is a great fin . For this, thou canji never 
be Contrite if thou make not fatisf action, not onely confefjing it, but in fatisfyinz his defire that is 
offended, and that with forrow. This is true Voilrine, and (hall never be cvertlsrown^by the fpirits NOTE. 
of ftilfe invention : which indeed is the firji eye unto the Devil. If you may offend your brother , and ^°°'l Angels 
I, . he therefore accurfed : How much more fhall you be accurfed, when yon offend the meffager of him"''^°^'^"^^^

Note. A. When I came home yefterday from the Court , and from London, and from the 
Lord Laskje, I found that E. K. was purpofed to ride forth of Town, and intended to be a- 
way (as he exprefly told me) five dayes : Certain Companions and his acquaintance having 
fo appointed with him,rome tarrying for him in Mortluck^e^ and feme at Brainford ( as was 
perceived this day afterward, and as he confeflxd unto me. ) Whereupon I thought good to 
fignifie fomuch unto the Lord Laskje who meant to come and refrefh himfelf at my houfe, 
as he was wont before ; either this day, or within two or three dayes after ; Who alfo de- 
lighted in E. K. his company, 6'^c. Hereupon about the time of E.K. his rifing I wrote thefe 
lines, intending to fend them prefently to the Lord Laskje^ that word might be returned of 
his intent before £. K. ihould ride, I meaning and hoping to perfwade £. K. to tarry fo long, 
and upon fuch refpeft.

This Letter being now written, and not yet folded up, my friend E. K. was ready and 
came out of his Chamber into my Study ; and I told him,that I was even now fending word 
to the Prince L/Zi/;,/? of his rideing- out, and return after five dayes 5 and fofliewed him the 
Letter: who when hecametothe phrafe, ^//</ y/t ipfa Veritas , he was famewhat offended, 
faying. What fecret meaning hath this, uponfome of your two former conference ? Truly (faid 
I ) even fuch as thecircumftance of the Letter doth import, that is ; Whereas you faid that 
you intended to return within five dayes, or at the fame dayes end, it is uncertain whether 
you will, or (hall, return later or fooner : and therefore ^idfit ipfa Veritas of your return, 
or intent to return, onely God doth know. He would by no meanes admit that my iincere 
expofition, but feemed fufpitious of fome other undue conftruftions of thofe former words ; 
thereupon I took the Letter and tore it in three pieces, and fent none : But in my mind re- 
ferred all to God his difpofition, affuring my felf of God his moji conftant proceeding in his own 
affairs. Shortly after faid £. K. to me. Certainly here is a fpiritual Creature in my right 
Sowle. (houlder, who fsnfibly faith to me, Come away : So ( faid I ) did one fay to Sowle^ when 

Evil fpirits. they would have had him away to have drowned him, whom I flayed in this Study by force, 
and fo hindered the Devil of his purpofe then ; as appeareth by that unhappy man yet alive. 
Nay faid E. K. they have told me that if I tarry here,I (hall be hanged ; and if I go with this 
Prince he will cut off my hcad,and that you mean not to keep promife with me ; And therefore 
if 1 might have a thoufand pound to tarry, yea a Kingdom, I cannot : Therefore I releafe 
Fifty pnind you of your promife of 50 pounds yearly Stipend to me,and you need not doubt but God will de- 
ycarly ftlpend. fend you and profper you, and can of the very ftones raife up children to Abraham : And a- 
£. K. his wife. S^'" ^ i-'^^MOt abide my wife, I love her not, nay I abhor her ; and there in the houfe I am mifli- 
ked,becaufe I favour her no better. To thefe, fuch his words fpoken in great pangs and 
difquietiieffe of mind, I rcpofed and faid, That thtfe his doings and fayings were not of God, 
and that by my wliole proceeding he might perceive what confidence 1 repofed in his dealing 
with the fpiritual, our friends, feeing even to the uttermoft penny (and more than my abiUty 
ferved unto convenienily ) I laid out ftill about the .. .. ming of fuch things, as were by me to 
bedonc, e&"c. Well, on the fudden, down he went ; upon his Mare, and away toward 

Brainford.

Saturday, i'e^^f/y^. 21. 1583. DieSani^iMatth<ei. 

lE departed from Mortlack^, about three of the Clock after noon : The Lord 
■ Albert Lask^y , (Vajwode o( Siradia ,in tolonia) meeting me on the water , as 
we had appointed: And fo brought night to London j and in the dead of the 
night, by Wherries, we went to Greenwich to my friend Goodman Fern the Pot- 
ter his houfe : Where we refrefhed our felves, and thither came a great Tylt- 
boat from Graves end to take us in, (by appointment of me and Mr. Stanley) to 
go to our fliips , which we had caufcd to ly fcven , or eight mile beyoud Gr.-.ves 
end. To which fliips we came on Sunday morning by Sun rife : In the greater of them (being 
a dubble Fly-boat of DfHWar^) my Lord Laskjey I, and £. K. with my Wife and Children,&c, 
' went : And in another fhip (by me alfo hired for this palFage) went fome of my Lord his men, 
two horfe,&:c, that Ihip was a Beyer, a pretty Ihip. With little windc we ftraight- way hoyfed 
fayl, and began our voyage in the (hip. 

This 22. day we were in great danger of perifhing (on the fands , called the 5pits) about "^here aiofe 
midnight.- We had (by force of wmde contrary) anchored by them, and the Anchor came ^.*"'J,'',^"f 
home, no man perceiving it, till the fhip was ready to ftrike on the fands. Then, upon great ^'^^j^ " ' 
diligence and poliicy ufcd by our Marrineri in hoyfing fay!, and cutting our Cable, (to leave 
our fliote anker) and committing our felves to the hands of Cod, and moji eurnejily prajing for 
a profperouf vinde : It pleafed the Almighty , and moft merciflill God , Suddenly to change the 
winds, which fervcd us to bear from the fands, and to recover ^inborrough, ba( k again. 

The 23. day (being Munday) we came to the mouth and entrance of ^?KWro»gi& Creifi^, or rj,^ fV'J'-iic 
Haven. And as we made to land in fmall Fiftier-boats, the Lord Ltfkje.y my Wife and Chil- help oi God at 
dren in one boat, and 7, with E. K. Marie , Elizabeth^ and John Crokjzr , in another, it fell fo '^^ very m.- 
out, that at the fliips fide, our Fiiher-boat his fayl-yard and fayl was entangled on the Mayn- ')'" j,°^ danger 
yard of the Fly-boat (being ftroke down) fo that, in our fettmg from the fhips fide , the top " ^' 
of our Boat being faft above, and the windes and ftrcam carrying the Boat off below , it in- 
clined fo much on the one fide, that the one half of the Fifher boat (well near) was m the wa- 
ter, and the water came foin (by theintangling before fpecitied , notearily to be undone, or 
loofed) that my Lord, my Wife, and all thatfaw us thought that of necerticy our Boat muft 

fink, and fo, we to have perifht. But God in his providence and mercy had greater of 

us, fo that we becanie clear; the Boat half full of water, fo that we fat wet to the knees , and 
the water with the billow of the Sea came flill beating in more and more : And in this mean 
trouble ; one of our two Boat-men, had loft his long Oarc out of the Boat into the water ; and 
fo not onely we lacked the help of thatOare , but alfo by reafon they would have followed 
the winde and ebb, for that Oar, (contrary to our courfe in handjand not able to become by) 
with much adoe we conftrained them with the fayl, our one Oare,and the Rudder to make 
fuch Oiifc as they could to get to §^inborrougb Town : And in the mean fpace £. K. with a 
great Gantlet did empty moll part ot the water out of the Boat,elfe it mull needs have funk by 
all mans reafon. At length(to be brief)we came to the Town fide,up the crooked Creekjwherey 
when as the Mafter of our fhip would have taken me out in his arms f Handing in the water 
with his Boots) he fell with me in the water,where I was foul arrayed in the water and Oafc. 
jGod be praifed for ever, that all that great danger was ended with fo fmall grief , or hurt.

abjiain, according as the holy Ghoji by his Church hath taught. Maks them clean : Ihen fhall 
you feel oxr pre fence among li you. And we will all of us defend you from the rage of wick^dneffe. 
We delight in the Go i of truth , and inthe worjhippers of Jujiice. Jbus fayeth the holy Gholi : 
Loy I have made me a Tabernacle, where the Cod of G.ds reigneth in Jujlice. And I will fanSife 
thofe places which rejoyce in charity. Mingle therefore your Alms with charity. And let jour 
prayers and fajiing be mingled with Alms deeds. For he that prayeth and falleth without mercy, it 
a lyar. Moreover, let your friendfhip he fuch, as if of charity , and not of thit world : Neither for 
the worlds fak^e, but for the fervice of God : All fiendfhip elfe it vain, and of no acctmt. Charity 
it the gift '.f theH'ly Gho'i, which Holy Ghoji it a kindling fire , knitting things together , through 
Chrijt Jefus ; in the true wif-iom of the F ather : Which fire it of no fmall account, neither to be rec-

above humane power toanfwer, ( and fo might feem worldly myfteries ; ) but alfo the true 
good news of them, might, many ways, be comfort unto us and ours. 

Behold iaifrael, the rough (tones are acceptable Altars, And the flinkjng Caves have been 

known unto the Lord. And why s" Becaufe the place was holy, neither this filthinejfe here, nor of 
any thing elfe created, hindreth: But the filthineffe of the place and Country wherein thy are de-

He holdech a li:tlc ftick within his fingers crooking. On his left hand he hath

his help, and the mimftery of his good Angels : After ( I fay ) more than halfan hour fpacc 
attendance; £.£. feemed and thought that he felt a thing about his head, as if it clawed 
with Hawks claws. It continued no long time. And toward the Eafterly corner of my 
creat Study Jibove, feemed to £. if. clouds to appear, far off, as at a quarter of a miledi- 
ftance. Then appeared a Sea, endlefle oneway, and a Haven mouth with a River which 
fell or ran into that mouth. And befides that River doing down into the Haven, did an- 
other River appear by running into the Sea, without any Haven making or having. The 
water of this Sea, is not like Sea-water, but rather like Qliickfilver. Now cometh a moun- 
tain, and fwimmech upon that main Sea. Now that mountain feemeth to reft andftand be- 
fore that River mouth, that is by the Haven. 

A voice Measure me, 

E. K. Now feemeth a great thing like a man to ftand, with one leg in 
the forcfaid driver, and with the other in the f aid 5ea, by „ having a corner 
of the ••• id between his laid legs. His right leg is in theRivcr,and hislefc 
in the Sea- His right leg feemeth gold, and his left leg lead. The moun- 
tain ftandeth before him. His legs are like two pofts, of the fubftance 
of the Rainbow- He is very high: he hath a face, but with many eyes 
andnofes,butnotdiftin(ftlyto bcdifccrned. His body feemeth to be red 
Braffe. He ftandeth with his arms abroad, and no hands appear. His 
right arme is of the colour of filver i Bis left arme feemeth to be black, 
twinkling. His head is much of the colour of that Sea wherein his left 
leg ftandeth- Now beginneth a right hand to appear i a fair right 
hand.

^Fter our divers prayers and confeftation of our Inimiliry, obediencej 
and credit in thefe Anions : and being come now to Cracovia^ the 
place fanftified, whereunto we were willed to make haft, d^c. Ac 
lenth appeared Nalvage. 

E K- He hath a Gown of white filk, with a Cape 
with three pendants with taffcL on the ends of them 
all green ; it is fur, white and fecmcth to (hine, with a 
wavering glittering. On his head is nothing, he hath 
no herd- His phyfiognomy is hke the pidurc of King FA-^ard the fixth ^ 
his hair hangeth down a quarter of the length of the Cap, Ibmewiiat 
curling, yellow- He hath a rod or wand in his hand, almoii as big as my 
little finger •• it is of Gold, and divided into three equal parts with i 
brighter Gold than the reft- He Itandcth upon his round tabic of Chris 
ftal, or rather Mother of Pearl : There appear an infinite number of letters 
on the fame, as thick as one can ftand by another . the table is fomev\«hac 
inclined on one iidc : heftandeth in the very middle; his garment covet- 
ethhis feet • hisbreaftfcemethfmoothas the down remaining of a Swan 
when all the feathers be ofF^ fo is his neck, i^c. He is lean and long* 
vifaged. 

L. The infinite mercies of God be on ns : and the light of his countenance fliinc on us ; 
and his favourable countenance be on irs. 

Nal Amen-, untohim that is, and was, ajtd liveth for ever. 

6. K- He looketh earneftly on his table , and turncth him to 
view it- 

Nal All things are in order. Thus faith the Mejfenger of him which U the God of JFif- 

dom. Is jour worthitteffe fuch, as you can merit fo great mercy? or are your vejfels cleanfed, an^ 
made aft to receive and hold the fweet •liquor j pure under ft andmg it ft If ? 

h. 

Hath the Sun entred into your bowels, or have you taftedof the Might-dew ? Where are your 
wedding Garments ; or after what fort do jstt provide for your marriage ? Vnfeafonedyou are 
and withered flejh, partakjrs ofthofe things which mah^e you holy : -through which partakjnx and 
the fecret providence of him that is the Highefi,you became dignified to the end, and arefi/ffi:?entl/ 
yvaftjtd for the time of entrance. ftiff-neck^ed people you deftrve nothing, andyetyou have the 
hire offuch as labour. But, what, can corruption be partaJ^er of thofe things that are incorrupt 
tible ? or man, which favoureth in himfelf, can you favour alfo of the Almighty. 

Oyou weakJings,6you of no faith, you Cankers of the earth ■■, Where is thejh'ameyou have ; 
Jf^hereare the tears you let fall ; Where it the humility yoi* are taught to? Nay jgu (ire fuch as 
fay in your hearts ; if the Spring be fair, the Uar-jeft is Itkj to be good: If thefe thing come toj>aJf:, 
n is the finger of the Lord. But fuch is jour imperfedion, fuch are the frtiits uf the flep, atid 
the vanity of mortality. 

Notwhhftanding, confider that you are fervants : Do therefore the will of your Mailer. Tou 
are become free: Be faithful aytdtb:inkj'ul to him that is the giver of liberty : Nay you are be- 
come children : part alters of thi ctunfel of kimthat fitteth and feth, and faith I am. Therefore 
he fober, faithful, and Waver nqt^f^rtke inheritance of your Fath(r is great : your freedom is 
"Without recompence, and your M after the King of Juftice.

Where are the peopky cr in what generation did they dwell, that hath been thus acquainted and 

dr ami into familiarity with the true Servants and Angels of God ? Vnto whom have thofe mylle- 

ries been opened. Is itnot [aid, of thofe that are fan&ified , '£he Lord appeared, ratto them mi. 

vilion •• But he cometh to you when you are awakj •' Vnto them he came ttnlooksd for., untoyot he 

T he tnd ma- Cometh requefted. Arife up therefore, and be not forgetful what the Lord hath done for you ; for 

keth All. ^he things ofthi^ tforld are not, until they be done, neither is there any thing affured, but by the end, 

p^-j}j It yeas [aid unto Abraham, And I will dejiroy them. He believed it ', but he as\ed not, when. 

Great is the reward of Faith •■, for it giveth ftrength : But thofe that are faithful are not of this 

world. Notwithlianding, you have f^iii, ( as it was [aid by the Difciples toGhrili,when they 

were jet unpure, and blind ) When fhall thcfe things come to pafle t Lord, what is meant by 

^'^'^^ th^, or that P Simple Faith excelleth all Science. For, Heaven and Earth Jh all per ijh in 

F»ich. xheir corruption : But the voices of the Lord, much more his promifes, are become Angels for ever : 

for as the Sun hegetteth in the earth, and is father of many things that live in corruption and have 

end ; So is the God of Heaven, the bringer forth and begetter of things celejiial with life and for 

ever. For why. Dixit & faftum eft, Every Idea in eternity is become for ever, and what is 

Ide». thought, is become a living creature. 1 teach you amy liery. 

As the tree in fappy life, watering her felf throughly , bring^th forth the ornaments of her own 
beauty : So the fpiritual part of man being good and dignified, bttrnijheth himfelf, with hi* found 
and faithful thought : I mean the glory and (hew of his own beauty; for the foul of man grow etht 
either with beauty to falvatim, or with di/honour and filthineffey to damnation.

Tuefday, A^rilis 17. Cracovis, 

]\ft?er divers Ejaculations appropriate to theaftion, and the Curtain of white water yet 
remaining, E. K. thought divers times that he faw through the white Veil, and ftone 
and all, nothing appearing therein. £, K. immediately fell into a new doubting of the ve- 
liry of thefe anions, and faid he liad a Vilion by a good Creature the lalt night , vvho faid 
thefe Creatures with which we dealt, would no more appear unto htm. Hereupon he faid 
that both the lafl dayes skorner,and thefe our inflruftors were all Devils : and that he would 
110 more (it to receive A. B.C. And fo by Letters, any Doftrine of theirs, untefTe they would 
otherWife exprefly, and lively deliver a plain rule thereof : With many other arguments to 
difprove the verity of our Aftions, whereupon he faid, that John your boy can well enou<Th 
deliver you their Letters, and fo you need not me,&c. I referred all to God , his will, and 
mercies : For. as 1 had at his hands onely, and by his order, and for his fervice required wih 
dom and true k^iowledge, fo do I not doubc but God will, according to hi> accuftonied good- 
ucfTe, provide for me, that Is belt for my vocation here in earth,e^c. 

E. K. He rofc, and went away : and left me alone in my Study , ap- 
pointed for thefe actions. 

Dens in adjutorium meum intende^Vomine ad adjuvandum me feftina. Gloria Patri (^ 
Filio & Spiritui San&o^ fieut erat in p-incifio & nunc & Jenifer & in fecuU

Thurfday, Circa 9. . 

As I was in my upper Study , and had gathered the holy words of the fecond and thir4 

call, and had conferred them with tlieir Englijh delivered alfo unto us : £. K. came up the 

flairs, andfo went into his Study, and came out again,and as he was gointj down the flaires I 

opened my Study door, and faluted him : He thereupon came up again , and came into 

my Study : And there I ftiewed him vvhat I had donej and how I had fome under- 

ftanding of thofe holy words, their fignifications by reafon of due applying the EnglijJj 

to the word Chriftus, intending thereby to have induced E.K. to like the better of the 

mannerof our friends, duc,and Methodical, proceeding with us, and told him that unlefTe of 

thisftrangc language I Oiould have thefe words delivered unto us Letter by Letter, we might: 

crre both in Orthography, and alfo for want of the true proiuniciation of the wo)ds,and di- 

ftinftions of the points, we might more miile the effeft expefted : But as on Juefdaj lafl; , fo 

now again he faid, our Teachers were deluders, and no good,or fufficienc Teachers,vvho had 

hot intwoyears fpace made us able to underftand, or do fomewhat : and that he could in two 

years have learned all the feven Liberal fciences, if he had firft karned Logick , &c. where-i- 

fore he would have no more to do with them any manner of way,wifhed himfelf in EngUndy 

and faid that if thefe books were his, that he would out of hand bum them , and that he had 

written to my Lord (by Pirniis') that he took ouf Teddhers to be deceivers, and wicked, and 

no good Creatures of God, with many fuch fpceches, and realons ('as he thought) of force 

to difwade himfelf from any, more dealing with them : But willed me to ufe John my Boy as 

my Skryer, for that thefe fpiritual Creatures were not bound unto h\m,&c. 1 anfwered unto 

all thefe parcels and reafuus, as rime ferved declaring mj perfeU truji in G5«/,thac feeing I have 

many years delired 3 and prayed for wifdorueCfu ch as the!e Actions import) at his hands, 

and by fuch means as to his Divine Majefty feemeth beft, that he would not either mijlikf my 

prayer, or abufe my Conftant hope in his goodneUe and mercy : Therefore / concluded that 

1 referred all to the mercifull will of God, and doubted nothing at the length to be fatif- 

fied of my requeil , and prayer made unto him. So he went from me this fecond time. ... 

God lighten his heart with knowledge of the truth, if it be his Divine will and pleafure. 

Note. Permis went on lafl: Wednefday morning, and had received our Letters after 
noon^onTuefday lail : But on Monday before the wicked Prince of darkueffe did what he 
conid to hinder our proceeding. 

. On Thurfday, labius (brother to my Lord Laskje his wife) brought news to Cracovia, that

What if it were a hundred Augiifts ? you may he a weary before Auguft next, as the Childrea 
of Jfrael were of their Manna* 

E. K. Why joyn you numbers with thefe letters, and added none 
with thofc of the former Table. 

Brother, what is the caufe that all the World is made by numbers? "the Numbers we fpeak, 
of, are of reafonand form, a fid not of merchants. 

A, I befeech you as concerning the powder whereof he thinketh that he hath made due 
afTay of ir, as if it fiiould have been the Philofophers Stone, and fo affirmed to be, by tht 
niiiiifter of this aftion ? I befeech you fo to anfwer, the thing, as his reafon may bfr 
fatisfied. 

A. They gave no anfwer hereunto, but proceeded in the former matter of Numbers. 

Gab Every Letter fignifieth the member of the ftihjlance whereof it fpeaketh. Every' 

word f.gnifieth the quiddity of the fubjlance. The Letters are feparated, and in confufion : a>iil1 
f/!)frf/orf J are by numbers gathered together ; which alfo gathered fignifie a number; for of- 
every greater containeth his hffer,fo are the fecret and unkii'jwn forms of things kjiit up in their 
parents : W^here being known in number, they are ealily diftinguifhed,/o that herein we teach 
places to be numhred : letters to be elected from the numhred, and proper words front the letters^ 
fignifyingfubjtantially the thing that is fpokfn of in the center of his Creator, whereby even as the- 
riinde of man moved at an ordered fpeech, and is eafily perfwaded in things that are tru« , /»* 
are the creatures of Cod ftirred up in themfelves, when they hear the words wherewithal they 
were nurfed and brought forth; For nothing moveth, that is not perfwaded : neither can any 
thing be perfwaded that is mtkjtown. ?lEif Creatures of God underhand ycu not, jon are not 
ef their Cities : you are become enemies, becanfe you are feparated from him that Governeth the 
City by ignorance. 

E. K. Whether is this Language known in any part of the World 
or no ? if it be,where and to whom ? 

Gab Man in his Creation, being made an Innocent, was alfo author ifed andmade p ir- 

taker of the Power and Spirit of God : whereby he not one/y did kjiow all things under bts Crea-,^ 

tion and f poke of them properly, namingthem as they were : hut alfo was partaker of our prefeucc, 

andfociety,yea afpeakprofthe myjleries of God; yea, with God hinifelf : fo that in innoctncj the 

power of his part ak.ers with God, and m hit good Angles, was exalted^ and fo became holy in the 

fight of God until that Coionzon (for fo it the true name of that mighty Devil") envying hit 

f elicit), and perceiving that the fubjiance of hit Ifffer part was frail and imperfea in refpea of his 

pure Effe, began to affail him, and fo prevailed : that offending fo became accurfed inthe fight of 

God ; and fo loji the Garden of felicity, the judgement of h js iinderftanding ; but not utterly 

the favour of God , and was driven forth (^ as your Scriptures record) unto the Earth which was 

covered with brambles : where being as dumb, and not a'hlet')fpeak_,he b.-gan to learn of necejjitj 

the Language which thou,E. K. callejt [ 1 Hebrew : ] and yet not that [z Hebrew'] amongftyout; 

i-n the which he uttered and delivered to hit poJierity,the neareft knowledge he had of God his 

Creatures: and from his own felf divided his fpeech into three parts;; twelve, tiiree, and 

fevcn ; the number whereof remaineth f but the true forms and pronuntiations w-i^t ; antf 

'therefore is not of that force that it was in his own dignity, much Uffe to be compared with this that 

.we dch\'er,whicb Adam verily fpake in innocency,and was never uttered noi difclofed to man 

ImcctiW now, wherein the power of God mvii v;ork.y and wiidtm in her truekjnd be delivered:

The Vail appeared as at rirft ainioft. After half an hoixr Gabriel znANalv age z^T^carcd^ 
after mj manifold prayers and difcourfes. 

^. Two keyes we have received by the mercy of the Higheft and your minifters, the reft 
we attend, according to the merciful will of the Higheft. 

Gab Move not fromyour places, for t-he place is holy. 

A. Shew a token O Lord when thy will is, whereby to perfwade thy merciful dealings 
with us, and the prefeiice of thy faithful Minifters. 

A. The frame of the Stone gave a crickling,no hand touching it, or othcrvvife any mor- xj^ 
tal or worldly thing moving it. , I heard it very certainly, and to £. K. it fecmed the found. °' 

of a bunch of keyes, as if they had quickly been fhakenandftrongly. 

E. K. Gabriel fitteth, and Nali/age ftandeth. 

Gab. My Brethren hearl{en to myvoice,for I am the truefervar.t of the God of Abraham, 

\^Z2iC, and ]3iC6\3.i the dignity whereof is fufflrient both for the verity of the Vo&rine, and the 
confirmation, and perfwafion of your mindes : for as God is the Father of the Faithful, fo hejlteweth 
himfelfunto the faithful : whereby yon may prwe the great comfort and confjlattni : that you may 
jujily gather of the mercies of God, as touching your Eleiiion. 

For at what time hath God appeared unto the unrighteous ? or where do you read that ever he 
■vifited the rej^robate ? for the reprobate hath no vifitation, but in the rod of Jufiice : 

But you may rife up amongyonr felves, faying lo, we are f reward, ws want faith. ^nobjeaion, 

. True it is,the aas of faith, but not the i-oits of faith. But I fay unto you, that the power 0/ /Infvrcr. 
God in his Election, is the Bafis of mans purity and acceptation. 

But here there is a (faveat. 

That man imagining his Predellination and perfect Ele&ion , juftifieth not himfelf ; for 
vherefoever this is found,or this Doctrine preached amongji you, either fimply in man, or publickjy in 
Congregation, it is the fure fign and token of their perpetual ignorance and confufion : For the 
Will and Tower of God beloiigeth not to our meafure ( for it was the cattfe of rebellion atnongjt us ) 
much lejfe amongmcn, which are fighting yet for the Glory of their reward. Behold it is a fin in 
him that judgeth of his brothers Confcience ', Much more is it a threefold error, to form the inia- 
j ginations of fin, by whpfe imaginations they are. 

Be not proud therefore of the gifts of God, but become humble; Neither JHjtifie ymrfelfinre- 
fpeU that this is the word of God delivered unto yoti for your own f elves : But the more you receive, 
, kethe more thankful j and the more you be in the jirength of God, the more nfe yon the pureneffe of 
humility. 

Of wkomit is faid. Behold nty Spirit hath entred, yea iftto my fervants, and tbey are become 
humble and meek. i>i the fight of men : But if we be the fervants of the God of Abraham, then are q^^ , g|, 
wethefpiritsoftrutbandunderiianding, for our faith is dignified in the fig'jt of the heavens, ° "^^ '* 
and we are become mighty in the power of the Almighty. Therefore ought we to be 
believed. 

' itow if you will confeffe your felves to be the children of Ahr4^^m,tben muft you alfo accept of our 
Vocirine : For the meat whereby Abraham Vved, is the fame food ws miniiier unto you : of whom 
't is [aid. He believed God, and it w^s eounted unto him for r'ig'iteoufneffs. Even fo do you,:

1. There appeareth a Partridge,but it hath one leg like a Kite : This 
Partridge feemeth to fit on a green place under the gate, one leg is 
much longer than the othcr,being like a Kites leg. This Partridge feem- 
eth to halt. 

He biddeth one of his.Company take it up. There goeth a bridge 
to the top of that Hill, all upon arches, and under it goeth a Pviver. 

He taketh the Partridge and pulleth all his feathers, • and they fall 
into the River : Hecutteth ofFthe longer leg juft to the lengih of the 
other. They about him cry, O juft judgement. 

Now he turneth him off over the Bridge, and he flyeth away, for the 
feathers of his wings were not pulled. 

2. He goeth on, and (t)meth to another gate ^ and there the third 
man unlocketh it, as the fecond next him unlocked the iirft Gate i he

appeareth a thing like a Kite, all w^hite, very great, it hath a fowl great

The Garden feemeth very delicate and pleafant. They go all into the 
Garden : and he faith, Thou art of the Wildernefle, thy feathers and

the lame Bridge ilill. ) The reft of the building from the Gate in- 
ward, feemeth very round and bright : yet there appear no windows 
in it. It is a frame, made as though the 7 PJanets moved in it. The 
Moon feemeth to-be New Moon. 

There ftandeth Armour,and this man putteth on, all white Harnefi^. 
He feemeth to kick down the Moon, and her frame or Orb ; and feem- 
eth to make powder of all i For there is no mercy here^ faith he. 

4. Now another of them goeth forward to another Gate, and open- 
eth the Gate, and goeth in ; there appear an infinite multitude of mqn. 
There fitteth amancloathed like a Prieft, havinga great Crown on 
his head: here are many preaching in this place. He goeth to that 
Crowned P)ieft,and he takcth away divers patches of the Vefture which 
he had, and the patches feemed to be like Owls, and Apes, and fuch 
like. 

He faith A King is a King^anda Prieft is a Prieji. 

He taketh from the reft their Keyes and Purfes, and giveth them a 
Staff'and a Bottle in their hiinds. He goeth from them. He putteth 
all that he took from them in a houfe befide the Gate, and writethon 
the door, Cogtiofcat qujfque fuum. ?„J5°',^ 

Nowthey proceed to another Gate, and another of them opened that 
Gate. The Bridge continueth ftill, afcending upward. Now there 
appeareth ( that Gate being opened ) a marveJlous great Wildernefle. 
There cometh a great number of naked wilde men to him. He Jfha- 
keth that Gate with his hands, and it falleth in pieces, one falleth on 
one fide into the River, and the other falls on the other fide into the 
River, '-'''' 

Let both thefe places be made one. Let the fpoil of the firft,be th^omfcrt of

6. E. K. Now he goeth, and the laft of his Company openeth an- 
other Gate ; he is longer in opening of that Gate,than any of the reft. • 

There appeareth a buihy place, and there runneth a great River on 
the very top of the Hill,and a great Gate ftandeth beyond the Hill,and 
a Very rich Tower all of precious Scones, as it feemeth. 

Here he filleth his Tankard in the River, and holdeth his hands up, 
and maketh fhew as he would return. 

He faid This was my coming., andfboidd be my return. 

E. K. Now they appear fuddcniy before the firft Gate, and there 
the Principal man diggeth the earth, and putteth ftones and brambles, 
and leaves afide. There he taketh out a dead carkafe, and bringeth it 
to a fire, and ftroketh it : a very lean carkafe it is j it feemeth to be a 
dead Lion i for it hath a long tail with a bufli at the end. 

He faith . .... Come let us take him up^ and comfort him j for it is in

Now the Lion feemeth to fit up and lick himfelf, and to drink of the

cer prayers, appeared Gabriel and Nalvage, with the Table, and 
Gdirif/ with his Dart in his hand. Moreover there appeared the

per on it, with a Desk and Cufhions ( which I had caufed to be made 
with red croflcs on them : ) alfo £. if. hiralelf and I apjjeared.^in 
the fame Stone. In effeft, all things as we had before us , after half 
a quarter of an hour, that ftiew of our furniture, ^ad our fclvas, 
difappeared. 

E.K. Gabriel ftandeth up,and fpeaketh as followeth. 

J mighty Citj was built on the top of a mouHtain, in the which dwelt many thovfands. 

Round about the Hil\ ran a frejh E iver, which was the onely comfort of the Town : for, of it they 
drank.y 'heir wives, their children, their vtan-jervants, their ntaid-fervants, their canteh, horfes, 
vmles, and a!Lthe beafis of their fields. The beginning of which River was a Spring, which wot un- 
known to the city, by reafon of the . . yth front whence it defce»ded. It came to pajje, that a Ser- 
pent groaned for her time, and lo, jhe brought forth : and . . . were fuch as her felf: and Jhe lifted 
up her bead and leaned upon'her twice writhen taile : and beheld the Sun jiedfajlly, (" for her envy 
•fPM toward that City ) and /befaid within her felf : My children are yet young, the timegrew,and 
they became big : and Jhe went unto the Spring, and fmiled and faid with a laughing voice. The 
Earth is faUen into thee, thou art cbokfd : but hearken unto my voice, Thoufhalt receive comfort z 
JiMt /he would not. And jhe lifted up her voice and roared ; for Jhe was. full of craft and deceit. 
And Jhe faid unto the Jhingles, through the which the Spring runs Qor rather fyeth ) "thou art full of 
emptineffe, and void places. Let my children ('therefore') bide themfelves within thee for a. feafon : 
and they were contented; And Jhe departed willingly, and faith within her felf: NjW I kjtow I 
(hall be Lady of the City, 

And after a few years, the young Serpents became great ', fo that the one half of their bodies 
dwelt within the Shingles,the reji troubled the paffige of the Spring : So that the Spring groaned 5 
for, the injury that wm done againii h^r, wm ere at. 

A great mifery, for the Hill is become defolate without the water, and the City and the beajis 
perijh for want of drinks ; f'/r the people groan, and are fud of forrow. 

. This City and Serpents are 60.. now, and judgement muji be had, betwixt the Shingles and the 
Spring . for between lieth the life and death of the City. 

Thus faith the Lord unto thee [ pointing to E. K.'] Gird up thy felf , and fit down, Confidef 
loth parts, and give judgement : for thy mouth Jhall this day be the judgement of the Lord. 

E. K. Do you mean me ^ 

• • 

E. K. As the Lord hath put the Authority of Judgement into my 
hands, fo I befeech him to give me wifdom and underftanding to judge 
right. And becaufe the judgement hereof is committed to me, I fuf- 
ped fome other myftery to ]i>; hidden in this my judgement required : 
But if it Ihall pleafe God that my friend here, Mafter Dee ihall give me 
his advifc, I fha!l think my felf well fatisficd. 

C on fid er With your felf Q faith tbf Lord) and give judgement againdthe Shingles, for 

the fault is plain. Consider two points,the necejit} of the Spring, that it muji come that wayes : 
and fecondly, the health of the City. 

E. K. My judgement is that the Shingles and Serpent fliould here* 
moved av^'av by an Earthquake from the place which they encumber 
and let, that there mav be a fit new place, and courfe for that Spring? 
to the relief of that City as before it was.

Tes : Hath he not budded him a Fort upon the whole Earth ? Hath he not the vidorj '

to you, we aredelirous to undcrftand of the reji y the Application to fuch names as we 
under(iaitd. 

Whereby you may perceive ( faid I to E. K. ) how your rcafon is marvclloufly confounded 
by your wilful phantalie : For fo much as, wherein you would find fault, in ourfpiritual " 

Inftruftors doings, Therein they hare done that which I requefted them .• asappearcth ; and 
that to the intent, of known Countries we might undcrftand which Angels had the govern- 
ment : for fuch puipofes, as occafion might offer or require ourpraftices to betryed in. 

This ( (juotb / ) is to groflc your error, and to wilful your wrangling : But I do in nar- 
rower points perufe and confider their words and doings ; In which though fometimes my 
ivriting^ ( after your declaration ) hath been amended by them, yet the occafion of niifwrit- 
ting for the molt parr, hath been either in yourmifreporting what you faw and heard, or 
in my wrong hearing, or writing : and fometime by the fpiritual prcfent corrcfting of my 
writing, and fometime longer after, &c. 

But for all this, E. K. remained of his wilful intent; and fo departed to his Study a^ain : 
And I committed God his Caufe, into his own hands,care and ordcringjas niay be beft for his 
honour and glory. So be it.

-v.'.f ' Junii, 22,23. Note. 

r^Ort'Friday, and efpecially Saturday, E. K. had great Temptations not to credit this 
Aftion, and was faid unto by a voice, how our Inlhuftors would ufe cavillation of our dif- 
ordered life, to forfake us, and not to perform, according to our fxpeftacion of the former 
proniifes to be performed by them. 

A Voice faid, likewife, to him, that A. L. fhould not go to the Emperours Court, for lack 
6f money : for hf lliould get none here. Likewife, ic willed him to go up iiuo his Study 
and he would fliew him all thettfeft of our Inftruftions received. E. K- complained to me 
how he was thus grcivoufly molefted by fuch means^and almoft brought in defpair. But I com- 
forted him as well as 1 could ( my felf being inwardly, moft forrowful } and made my moane 
to God by prayer when I was alone : for him, and our Caufe. Moreover he could not be 
^crfwaded by me that ^ood Angels would undertake to help u; zo any relief by money or trea- 
fiirc : affirming that it appertained to the vviclced ones : feeing they were th& Lords of this 
World ; and thekin.'^domof God was not of this World,©"!;. .... Said,thac tlie wicked were 
ili'ttie world, and of the world ; but the Eleftwere in the world, but not of the jyorli.

To be of the world, was to be in love with the trade of the vanities of this wortS, ancfto

Then A. L f .ught in Davids Pfaker for the eleventh Pfalni, and fixceenth vcrfc thereof.- 
and while he Avas fo about that Pfalm, The voyce faid that he meant not that Pfalm of Da- 
Tid, but the eleventh Pfalm of Reffenfn : which Pfalm the Lord A. L- was then in reading to 
E. K. and was about the verfe. Hie labor ac dolor, 8ic. being the fixth verffi. 
By and by after, the voyce faid in EngUJh.

Hereupon the Lord A. L. did read forth that Pfalm of Rcjf.M/?j, and when he came tothe

A, The great mercies of God be upon us; and we befeech him to incrcafe our faith ia 
him, according to his well liking. 

£. K. Amen 

E. K. But while I confider thefc buds better,they fcem rather to be

A.riAngtis. £ K. They are 72 in number ; feeming with their \\Q2i*\s(altcrKatini) 
one to bend or hang toward me, and another toward you. They feem 
atfo to move circularly toward the Eaft ; but very flowly. In the 
middcft of this Circle, appeareth a little fire, of the colour of yern, 
hot, ready to melt : from which fire to every pne of the laid lillics, k» 
fiery beam extended i whi.h beam toward the end, is, of more whiti/h 
fiery colour, than it is near the center. 

^ A 'voice. -... E. K. A voice comcth fliouting out from the Lillics, 
faying, Holy, Holy, Holy : and all the lillies are become on fire:, and 
feem to tumble into that fire. And now they appear again dif^inctlyj 
as before: And the fire remained in the center ftill : and the emana- 
tion of beams, came from it, Hill to the forefaid liljy buds. 

E. K. I hear a found, as though it were of many waters, poured OE 
ftreaming down in the clifts of great Ro:ks and Mountains : The

E. K. Now there cometh out of the Lake, a thing like a Lion in 
the hinder parts, and his fore part hath many heads , of divers fafliions : 
and all'^on one trunk of a neck. He hath like feathers on his neek. 
He hath 7 heads : Three on one fide, and three on another, and one 
in theitiiddle : which branch from the neck is longer than the other, 
and lieth backward to his taile-ward. The white*man giveth him a 
bloody Sword : and he taketh it in his forefoot. 

Lu fiThe white man tyeth this Monfter his 4. legs with a chain, that he 
cannot go, but as one (hackled, or fettred. Now he giveth the Mon-

E. K. The white man taketh the hammer , and flriketh him in the 
forehead of that head which is in the middle, and lieth down backward 
toward his taile.
