This sumptuously illustrated volume analyzes artists' representations of angels and demons and heaven and hell from the Judeo-Christian tradition and describes how these artistic portrayals evolved over time. As with other books in the Guide to Imagery series, the goal of this volume is to help contemporary art enthusiasts decode the symbolic meanings in the great masterworks of Western Art. The first chapter traces the development of images of the Creation and the Afterworld from descriptions of them in the Scriptures through their evolution in later literary and philosophical works. The following two chapters examine artists' depictions of the two paths that humans may take, the path of evil or the path of salvation, and the punishments or rewards found on each. A chapter on the Judgment Day and the end of the world explores portrayals of the mysterious worlds between life and death and in the afterlife. Finally, the author looks at images of angelic and demonic beings themselves and how they came to be portrayed with the physical attributes--wings, halos, horns, and cloven hooves--with which we are now so familiar. Thoroughly researched by and expert in the field of iconography, Angels and Demons in Art will delight readers with an interest in art or religious symbolism.

Angels occupy a significant space in contemporary popular spirituality. Yet, today more than ever, the belief in the existence of intermediary spirits between the human and divine realms needs to be evangelized and Christianized. Angels and Demons offers a detailed synthesis of the givens of the Christian tradition concerning the angels and demons, as systematized in its essential principles by St. Thomas Aquinas. Certainly, the doctrine of angels and demons is not at the heart of Christian faith, but its place is far from negligible. On the one hand, as part of faith seeking understanding, angelology has been and can continue to be a source of enrichment for philosophy. Thus, reflection on the ontological constitution of the angel, on the modes of angelic knowledge, and on the nature of the sin of Satan can engage and shed light on the most fundamental areas of metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics. On the other hand, angelology, insofar as it is inseparable from the ensemble of the Christian mystery (from the doctrine of creation to the Christian understanding of the spiritual life), can be envisioned from an original and fruitful perspective.

This is the history and the future events of Angels and Demons. Events are taken from the oldest Jewish and Christian texts ever written. Details are examined, questioned, and combined into a panoramic book. Three times creation fell. Three times Gods declared a separation; once in heaven, once on earth, and once between the two. Three times, God's creation violated his will, so the earth and all therein suffered, or so we are told.There was a great war in heaven and Lucifer, prince of the angels, declared his intention to seize the throne of the Most High God. Fueled by arrogance and pride, he whipped up support, promising one-third of the angels a place in his new kingdom if they followed him. It was a choice to serve God or rule a piece of what would be left after heaven was destroyed. They thought it better to rule in chaos than serve in paradise. The war was on.But, his plan did not work. Even though Lucifer was the pinnacle of God's angelic creation and the greatest of all angels, he could not defeat the warrior Michael and the army that remained, for God empowered the host advancing his will. With the rage of the vanquished-prideful, Lucifer, now known as Satan, continued his attack, not against the heavenly host that had defeated him, but against the helpless creation of the God he so hated. This was to be the cause of the fall of man.Part of the heavenly host, still obedient to God, were fulfilling their appointed duties. These were called "The Watchers." They were assigned to record the deeds of man and watch over the creation, accounting for its activities. It was after the fall of the angels and after the fall of man, when mankind began to populate the earth, that the Watchers noticed the emerging beauty of the human women. These spiritual beings saw the women of the earth and wanted them. They sought to taste the love and lust that drove men. So they did, and 200 Watchers fell from the spiritual world to the baser physical realm. The consequences would literally haunt mankind forever.

Despite our tendency to think of the demonic as evil and the angelic as good, our own legends don't always bear this out. Angels can be the incarnation of light and salvation, but they can also fall - Satan himself is a fallen angel. Demons can be truly demonic, but these unearthly creatures can also, on occasion, lend humankind a hand. Temptation can lead to revelation, supernatural messengers who bring true justice may not be welcomed, and beings seeking redemption can be blind to mortal needs. Stories from world-renowned authors of science fiction and fantasy - including Neil Gaiman, George R. R. Martin and Joyce Carol Oates - and rising stars portray angels in all their glory, demons at their most dreadful, and a surprising variety of modern interpretations of ancient myth.

The supernatural world is prominent in many of today's movies, television shows, novels, and the popular imagination. But some of what is presented as grounded in a Christian worldview is in fact far from that. In Angels and Demons, Michael Patella, OSB, offers an accessible and fascinating look at supernatural realities as they really are presented in the Bible and Christian tradition. Among the topics Patella explores with a valuable combination of pastoral wisdom and academic rigor are: the role of angels in the ministry of Jesus the apocalyptic battle in Revelation the occult, possession, and the work of Satan what angels are and what they're not the Last Judgment: how? when? Readers will appreciate Patella's level-headed appraisal of the views of the supernatural world in the various sections of the Bible. They will be engaged by his lucid account of "Who's Who in Hell." They will be both comforted and inspired by his foundational conviction that Christ has claimed creation for the forces of good, evil is on the run, and there is no chance of the tide ever turning the other way, evil actions and human suffering notwithstanding.

I have traveled through this life on a journey to find my truth, my life, and my love. What I found is there is beauty to be found within destruction, for It is only through the chaos of our own tragedies that creation is brought to new life. This is a compilation of poetry throughout this journey of self-discovery, self-destruction, and the longing for all the true and pure love I cast away as I battled the Armageddon of my soul. The one where I found I was both the angel and the demon of my nightmare while my Archangel was always there, even when I could not see him, feel him, or hear him.
