The Beginnings of Angels
For millennia, man has grappled with the notion that there are beings that connect us to a higher order, to Gods. In this study, Sulavik draws from exhaustive research to elucidate the origins of angels–not only from the Christian perspective, but also from other religions such as Judaism and Zoroastrianism. This work presents new thinking around the perennial questions surrounding the origins of angels, man’s relationship to them–and how our understanding has changed over eras from the Ancient to the contemporary.
