I am interested in angels in religions over time. Not the love-y love-y guardian angels or the flying cupids, but the really cool ones. The one who (In Christianity and Islam for example) fight against their fallen brethren. The imposing figures, archons of pure good and evil.
I have read a few books on them, but these mixed the powerful ones in with hippie’s acid induced visions so to speak. Can anyone give me a little info on some of the more powerful angels throughout history in different religions? For example, I’d classify a valkyrie as an angel. I am gonna be really specific and say that they have to have form, not just a “cloudy spirit.” Did the Mesopotamians have angels?
Names and occupations would be of great help. Especially the fallen ones. Thanks for helping me out!
