Title: Angels – Messengers Of The Gods
Author: WILSON PETER LAMBORN
This new and completely redesigned edition is a dazzling display of angels in art, folklore, literature and scripture, around the world and through the ages. Peter Lamborn Wilson explains how philosophers, mystics and artists have envisioned the messengers of the gods since ancient times: their appearance, work, nature and surroundings, and presents some of the most important angelic narratives. This is a celebration of the sacred origins and artistic evocation of angels across every tradition: Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Taoist, Classical, pagan, Native American and Zoroastrian alike. Five abundantly illustrated Themes sections complement the text.
