She points out that angels need not be winged- they can wear antique dress, contemporary church vestments, secular fashions, armor, or nothing at all- their gender and age are uncertain- they may not even have bodies but appear only as winged heads- and they are not always good (Satan, of course, is a fallen angel).

Langmuir explores these intriguing characteristics of angels by looking at some of the best-known and most engaging religious paintings in the Western tradition.
