The angel Madimi castigating John Dee and Edward Kelley

[The angel Madimi castigating John Dee and Edward Kelley with Biblical threats for their reluctance to follow her instructions and for their Faustian ambition. From Dee’s diary:]

“Behold you are become free: Do that which most pleaseth you: For behold, your own reason riseth up against my wisdome.

Not content you are to be heires, but you would be Lords, yea Gods, yea the Judgers of the heavens: Wherefore do even as you list, but if you forsake the way taught you from above, behold evil shall enter into your senses, and abomination shall dwell before your eyes, as a recompense, unto such as you have done wrong unto: And your wives and children, shall be carried away before your face.”
