The Language of the Angels
Not much is handed down about the pre-christian, antique and prehistorical forms of magic that could enlighten us how the actual practice in those times would have looked like. The earliest resources on magic were found in the Near East, within the sumeric and babylonic cuneiform writings and the hieroglyphic texts of the middle-egyptian period.
The term "magician" was derived from the persian term naming a tribe that was being persecuted and wiped out by the Persians. The knowledge of the Magi was preserved by the persian scholars. Antique forms of practical magic are preserved in some tractates and amuletts. In traditional ceremonial magic it is a myth that the king Solomon of the hebrews was one of the greatest magicians of his time. Many texts and magical tractates are being ascribed to his authorship. Today it is quite certain that Solomon is not the actual author of these grimoires. The mythological ascribtion however gives valuable hints that the solomonic angel-magic has indeed quite ancient roots.
The enochian calls were written in a strange idiom. Some linguists attempted to proof that this language is an artificial construct by John Dee or Edward Kelley. They failed and so the mystery of the enochian language still remains unresolved. It is much more possible that it is a real language of unknown origin and age.
If you're into biblical research, study and mapping out historic events. Then you must have come across the patriarch Enoch in Genesis. Enoch is the direct descendant from Adam, through Seth's genealogy and great grandfather to Noah, the savior of humanity after the floods. A notetable collection of Enoch's writings were later put together in what we now know as the book of Enoch. Under which they consist of 5 books. The Book of Enoch is not part of the Biblical cannon.
