"In high art and popular culture, in religion and in spirituality, angels have been a powerful presence throughout civilization. Through young men in the Hebrew scriptures, the androgynous winged creatures of the pre-Raphaelites, and the masculine 'Angel of the North', David Albert Jones explores the different ways in which angels have been portrayed."--P.  of jacket.
