Angels and angelic beings

Humans have constantly held a charm for angels and angelic beings. For eras artists have attempted to capture the image of angels on canvas. However, it may astonish you to know that the Bible portrays angels nothing at all like they are usually portrayed. 

An angel is a paranormal being or spirit, typically in humanoid form, found in different religions and mythologies.

The theological study of angels is known as "angelology". In Zoroastrianism and Abrahamic religions they are often shown as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding impact.

The term "angel" has also been expanded to various ideas of spirits found in many other religious traditions. Other roles of angels comprise defending and directing human beings, and executing God's tasks.

In art, angels are often portrayed with bird-like wings on their back, a halo, robes and various forms of glowing light.
