Tant dans sa Monas Hieroglyphica (1564) que dans sa Mathematical Praeface (1570), John Dee défend une vue des mathématiques qui se veut compatible avec l'idée d'un 'Pythagoricall, and Platonicall perfect scholer'. Cet article montre que ce furent les doctrines arithmologiques contenues dans les épîtres de Trithème—lues par Dee dans une copie du De vsu et mysteriis notarum (1550), qu'il acheta à Anvers en 1562/3—qui exercèrent sur les doctrines pythagoriciennes de la Monas de Dee un impact en profondeur. Alors que des commentateurs antérieurs ont mis l'accent sur l'orientation alchimique de l'oeuvre de Dee, une lecture serrée des lettres de Trithème (et les annotations portées par Dee sur celles-ci) montre qu'il croyait que le connaissance des mystères arithmologiques de Trithème s'étendait bien au-delà de l'alchimie, et devait constituer une 'discipline nouvelle' appelée à devenir une science occulte universelle.
