I hope this is the right section for this post.

I have been reading and researching lately about Enochian Magic.  I am very interested to hear from anyone who has knowledge or experience with this path.  I see it as being tied to Christianity and I would like to learn more about how this system was developed and how and who is using Enochian Magic in the present.  Thanks so much!

I don't work with Enochian entities, but there is a debate brewing over whether they are actually angels or Demons.  I do, however, use a variation of the Enochian Tablets in spell and ritual work.  Anton LaVey uses his own version of the Enochian Keys in The Satanic Bible, but I don't use that at all.  Lon Milo Duquette has some great books available on working with Enochian entities.  I just want to give a word of warning in that working with these entities, at least as far as I have heard, can be very rewarding but also very dangerous if you do not know what you are doing.  Please be very careful - and I would suggest reading Duquette's works above others in this particular area as I know he is well-versed in the subject matter!

Id doesn't matter if they're angels or demons--it depends on what terminology you want to use I guess.  They are certainly not in the same class of entities as say the Goetic Demons--there is just no comparison, unless you want to go to the level of "well you evoke both of them".

I would say Enochian Magick is for someone who is experienced with Ritual Magick and evocation--in other words I wouldn't start here.  Du Quette's book is great but I also like to look at the older texts that inspire such things (even if they are more difficult).  Du Quette imho tends to dumb down certain--but that's somewhat irrelevant.

I particularly wanted to address the questioner's remark about Enochian being "tied to Christianity".  This is somewhat true in that Medieval Ritual Magick which helped inspire this system and well as many of its most prominent practitioners (e.g. John Dee) came from a Christain tradition.  However it is more firmly rooted in Hebrew mysticism, and its most recent (and probably effective) incarnations have occurred in modern Western Hermetic circles.

Why would it be important that it is tied to Christianity.  Imho, approaching the Angels as anything less than a Magician (i.e. a supplicant) as a Christian might do would be a misunderstanding of the nature of this system.
