Particularly helpful when comparing other views of angels- even those with other goals or down right trickery such as the work of John Dee. An interesting overview- very different than the modern view of angels as cute- in the medieval period we are reminded that they were fierce as portrayed in the bible- even when they were simply delivering messages people would cower in fear fall to the ground and couldn't look at them- from fear. This book serves as an antidote to the idea of angels as cute smiling baby types with wings.

Excellent book about the spirits of heaven. Some parts are a little "heavy", but overall really superb. From Augustine, Gregory the Great, Bernard of Clairvaux to Hugh of St Victor, they all provide great insight to the Angelic Realm. This is NOT a lite book about little cherubs and cutsie angels - this is a serious work on the Angels and Spirits. There is NO New Age influence in this serious document, it is for "those who long for and hunger after the face of God" and how they are being shaped by the light of the angels. This is a very good book.
