This volume presents stunning images of angels and cherubim, with representations of these celestial heralds from early Christian mosaics to the paintings of Marc Chagall. Art historian Marco Bussagli has organized the book by significant Biblical events, beginning with the Creation in Genesis and ending with John the Evangelist’s vision of Heaven on Earth in Revelations; each work of art is accompanied by the Biblical passage it illustrates, along with a commentary exploring its form and meaning. Here are angels as assistants, messengers, punishers, soldiers, rebels, and saviors, assembled for the delectation and delight of both art lovers and believers.
