Gustav Davidson’s classic text, A dictionary of Angels: Including the Fallen Angels, is the result of sixteen years of research in Talmudic, gnostic, cabalistic, apocalyptic, patristic, and legendary texts. The classic reference work on angels is beautifully illustrated and its reissue coincides with the resurgence of belief in angels in America. This well researched and exquisitely illustrated dictionary is a wonderful collectable for all those who believe in angels, miracles, lore, and faith.
Drawing mainly - and extensively - on the Christian and Jewish faiths, Davidson presents a compendium of all things angelic that is at once quirky and scholarly. Only the most knowledgeable readers will have any familiarity with more than a few of the hundreds of angels assembled here for our instruction and edification. A unique enterprise. (Kirkus UK)
