Angels From the Vatican
The Invisible Made VisibleBook - 1998
Angels have had an all-pervasive presence in the collective artistic and religious expressions of the Western world. From the beginning of humanity's recorded encounters with the divine, they have made their appearance as messengers, intermediaries, guides, and protectors. In this book, treasures from the extensive collections of the Vatican in Rome show how, through the ages, artists have represented the invisible, spiritual beings known as angels.
