Nitpicking note: What you call the "Ministers" are -- according to
Dee's records -- actually something like "regions" of the magickal
universe, each one corresponding in part to one or more areas of the
physical globe. The belief that they were ministers of the Aethyrs was
an error by whatever person assembled the G.D. version of the Enochian
lore, who apparently failed to read a line of Latin in the diary that
clarified the distinction. Take a look at the Enochian Magick
Reference ( for more information
on this subject.

You can take a look at the magical record of my (at present
half-complete) invocations of the 91 "Parts of the Earth" at Rather than doing as you
contemplate, I started with #1 and worked my way down, which seemed to
work all right; don't see any compelling reason to do them in reverse
sequence. The text includes summaries of the two different methods I
used in the invocations, but you'll need to hunt for them among the
records for the first ten Parts or so.

The Denning and Phillips method of using the Parts produces slightly
different results. Since they incorporated the Second Call into their
invocation process, their results tend to be focused more towards the
material end of things than the spiritual; their work seems to be a
catalog of the various numbered-but-unnamed ministers who dwell in
each of the Parts, rather than a description of the Parts' natures per
