Jim Reeds - John Dee And The Magic Tables In The Book Of Soyga
The Book of Soyga (also titled Aldaraia) is an anonymous late-mediaeval or early modern Latin magical work. One copy of The Book of Soyga is known to have been possessed by the Elizabethan scholar John Dee. After Dee's death, the book was thought to be lost until 1994 when two manuscripts were located in the British Library (Sloane MS. 8) and the Bodleian Library (Bodley MS. 908), under the title Aldaraia sive Soyga vocor, by Dee scholar Deborah Harkness. The Sloane 8 version is also described as Tractatus Astrologico Magicus, though both versions differ only slightly.
