Angels have been in detail associated with theories of illustration, and theology can be a artistic strength. usual philosophers and
theologians too discovered it fascinating or essential to discover angel doctrine. Angels didn't disappear in Reformation theology: even though centuries of Catholic traditions have been stripped away, Protestants used them in artistic methods, adapting culture to new doctrines and to moving perceptions of the world.
