In 1564, the same year that Hieronymus Wolf began his autobiography, the English astrologer and polymath John Dee was seeing his Monas hieroglyphica through its printing in Antwerp. The Monas contains a long and detailed apology, written in the form of a dedication to Maximilian of Habsburg, soon to become Emperor Maximilian II. In this introduction, Dee claims that the astrological sign for Mercury could form the basis of a new scientific language in which alchemy too would figure prominently.
