Overview

Redesigned and reformatted for a new generation of readers, this classic series provides illustrated introductions by distinguished writers and scholars to the worlds of mythology, symbols, and sacred traditions.
Celestial emissaries have inspired artists from every tradition to create artwork and decoration for temples, tapestries, miniatures, and manuscripts. Here is a dazzling array of angels in art, folklore, literature, and scripture, around the world and through the ages. Learned and lucid, the text illuminates the sacred origins of angels—from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim to Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, and Zoroastrian.
