Product Description


"...co-editors Peter Marshall and Alexandra Walsham provide a helpful overview of the place of angels in Christian history." -Timothy Masch, H-German

"Rarely does a collection of essays hold together so tightly as this one, which is likely to inspire a spate of studies of angels in the early modern world."
Laura Smoller, Renaissance Quarterly

"The essays in this volume are cogent and painstakingly researched. They explore aspects of the early modern period that have not been widely examined...This volume will without a doubt appeal to scholars of early modern religious and cultural history a well as those of art history and literary studies." --Richard F. Johnson, Harper College: The Catholic Historical Review

Book Description

This volume is the first to consider how belief in the existence of angels negotiated the religious, intellectual and cultural upheavals of the early modern period. The contributors explore the fate of these heavenly protectors against the backdrop of the Renaissance and Reformation.
