For translation, I’m using the ENOCHIAN DICTIONARY, Compiled by Benjamin Rowe, 1982-1998

As well as the Concordance of Enochian

The symbols themselves, I’m translating using this site

According to John Dee’s diary, Enochian is read/written from Right to Left.

The X-Ray made all of the symbols mirrored and flipped, but you can still read it right-to-left from this perspective, keeping in mind that each symbol is a horizontal reflection of its true form. (especially important when dealing with E, X and I, which all look very similar)

According to wikipedia and Benjamin Rowe, both C and K are used in different context, through the symbol for both is the same. Luckily, very few words actually use the K version, and I was able to use ‘C’ in all Enochian words.

Likewise, the symbol for U is also V and W

The symbol for I is also J and Y

If letters on the lines below are in parenthasis, it is because the letters themselves are not visible on the x-ray, and were inferred based on what word(s) contain the visible section. For instance, in line 2, CONISB is visible, and the only match was ‘CONISBRA’

A simple ‘-’ means the letter is illegible and unable to be inferred.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

2- I begin anew, Angel of Fire / Much Glory

3- Much Glory, Liveth / of Blood, The work of Man

4- The Stars, Our Lord & Master / Treasure , Singing praises ….

5- (insult?), Divided / Dwell, Diminish

6- (name of an evil spirit), He who works wonders / Balance, Fire, as unto …

7- Your god, ???? / Sharp, Of your creation, or, also, The Rotten

8- ??????/ ?????

~~

Some words I cannot find a direct meaning for, such as “Pamphicas” in the 4th line which I cannot find any definition. It is listed as something that should be said with a ‘Contemptuous tone’ which gives the impression that it is an insult.

A ‘????’ means that I cannot find any translation for that section

There’s the poem with verses divided by Side (Left or Right ribs)

The face, I begin anew, Angel of Fire,  Much glory, Liveth, The Stars, Our Lord and Master (insult) Divided (name). He who works wonders, Your god, ???….

I have prepared, much Glory, of blood, The work of Man. Treasure, singing praises…Dwell, Diminish. Balance, Fire, as Unto… Sharp, of your creation, or also, the Rotten. 

Angels are said to sing praises to God, and Supernatural says their language is Enochian. You can actually find sites that have the Enochian scripts to ACTUAL god-praising song/poetry  (They’re actually really beautiful) 

I also came across this lovely work called 'The Vision and the Voice' by Aleister Crowley. 

 

So that was fun. 

In the 7th rib on the right, it reads ’ QT QTING’ and when I first saw it, I imagined Castiel starting to write the sigils, intending to just write ‘QTING’ but accidentally making another ‘Q’ instead of ‘I’. Instead of scribbling it out, he tries to make it part of the poem.  

I admit I laughed at the image of Castiel getting all huffy and defensive, if Gabriel questioned him about the terrible syntax.

Enochian is actually how I first got into the Supernatural fandom, I was researching it (i.e. googling it) and I came across some great posts on tumblr about it and the rest is history.

I used The Whole Enochian Dictionary as my primary reference for this. (It’s actually a decent read too if you’re into linguistics/fictional languages/religious mythology.) There’s uppercase and lowercase letters but no numbers or punctuation marks. I’ve seen another enochian font out there but I wanted to make one that looked more handwritten than carved or inked.

I don’t know how useful this will be but it was fun as hell to make. If you do use this, please do tag me so I can see what you’ve made!

Enochian is a name often applied to an occult or angelic language recorded in the private journals of John Dee and his colleague Edward Kelley in late 16th century England. Kelley was a spirit medium who worked with Dee in his magical investigations. The men claimed that the language was revealed to them by angels.

The language is integral to the practice of Enochian magic. The language found in Dee and Kelley’s journals encompasses a limited textual corpus, only some of it with English translations. Several linguists, notably Donald Laycock, have studied Enochian, and argue against any extraordinary features in the language.

Dee’s journals did not describe the language as “Enochian”, instead preferring descriptors like “Angelical”, the “Celestial Speech”, the “Language of Angels”, the “First Language of God-Christ”, the “Holy Language”, or “Adamical” because, according to Dee’s Angels, it was used by Adam in Paradise to name all things. The term “Enochian” comes from Dee’s assertion that the Biblical Patriarch Enoch had been the last human (before Dee and Kelley) to know the language.
