What is an angel? Anyone who has ever wondered about the nature of these seraphic beings will find all the answers in this comprehensive dictionary. With 2,000 easy-to-access and cross-referenced entries, all the archangels, cherubim and seraphim are here—from Michael and Satan to the Kaballa's Sandalphon, from ancient Persia's Alkanosts to Islam's Israfil.
