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.

Angels, demons, and the devil have fascinated humankind from the dawn of time. Contemporary interest in angels is especially keen, as best seen in the mass-marketing of angel books and angel art. The world is awash with wings! But is this romantic view of angels a biblically accurate depiction of these heavenly creatures? What can we know about the angels? How, if at all, do they touch our lives? Despite a bizarre mixture of comedic references to a red-suited bogeyman and, by contrast, frightening images of a cunning Satan relentlessly tempting each of us to do evil, far less serious attention has been paid to demons and the devil. Most likely it's because the pertinent scriptures are not always easy to discern. Just when we think we have demons safely within a well-defined box, suddenly they come swooping at us from another direction. Just when we think everything about the devil is well within our grasp, suddenly that fiendish figure becomes far more elusive. This challenging biblical landscape explains the unusual format of presenting what the Bible has to say about these intriguing celestial beings as if you, the reader, were having a one-on-one conversation with Michael the archangel. If anyone should know everything there is to know about the subject, surely it would be Michael!

The intent of writing this book was not to scare anyone but to make everyone of us, including myself, aware of the fact that there is life after death. Our soul keeps on living in another dimension. We are all accountable for our actions, thoughts, and intentions during our lifetime. Therefore, we must all be kind to one another, out of love for one another and not out of fear of retribution, so we can make this world a better place. After all, it is not only for the benefit of the people close to us and others we encounter during our lifetime but for our own as well. If you are true to yourself, pursue the truth, and are not afraid to face it, then this book is for you. We must all strive to become better people for everyones sake, including ourselves. There is judgment and a Judge after we die, and we must attest in front of the Judge to all of our actions, intentions, and thoughts during our lifetime here on earth.
