Doctor John Dee was one of the most influential philosophers of the Elizabethan Age. A close confidant of Queen Elizabeth, he helped to introduce mathematics to England, promoted the idea of maths as the basis of science, anticipated the invention of the telescope, charted the New World and created one of the most magnificent libraries in Europe. At the height of his fame, Dee was poised to become one of the greats of the Renaissance. Yet he died in poverty and obscurity, because he also believed in the power of magic.
There is a painting of the meeting between Dr Dee and Queen Elizabeth hanging in Central London. So, where was this taken?
Thanks and a tip of the hat to Porl Cooper.
