From Michael to Lucifer, the Seraphim to the Nephilim, this text alphabetically catalogs the spiritual entities we call angels. Davidson does a tremendous job of summarizing the varied interpretations of angelic lore from Biblical, non-canonical, and fictional sources. Each entry is objective and to the point. There are more names listed here than in any other books that I have read of its kind. I recommend this book to all students of angelology.

From A'albiel to Zuriel, A Dictionary of Angels (including the fallen angels) is a thoroughly comprehensive and well researched text with derivations stemming from sources as diverse as Milton's Paradise Lost to Mather's Greater Key of Solomon. Detailed appendices cover such topics as 'The Angelic Script', 'The Orders of the Celestial Hierarchy', 'The names of Metatron' and 'The Watchers' to name but a few and the thorough bibliography is almost as valuable as the book itself. To the uninitiated, A Dictionary of Angels may at first seem overwhelming, such is it's scale, but Davidson has certainly attained his desire to 'hack... through the the maze of changes in nomenclature and orthography that angels passed through in the course of their being transferred from one language into another...' and on the whole shared appellations are highlighted accurately enough, the exceptions I have found not worthy of mention here. Especially useful are the references to source literature held by each entry. Not all of this is heavy theological stuff, however, and there is enough tongue and cheek humour dotted throughout that one may read this wonderful book cover to cover. Purchase without delay!

The book I got was used but in great condition. The front of the book was ripped a little but was taped with clear tape and looked tidy. The pages inside were clean and without any marks. Very happy to reuse this great book again! Thanks.

This book is beautifully illustrated, but the images are nothing compared to the content. I have found this book to be a great help in research and with satisfying my curiosity. This is the one book you absolutely MUST have if you are interested in angels -- the REAL ones.

It was certainly an unexpected pleasure to find that most, if not all, of what I was researching was covered in this comprehensive Dictionary of Angels. Very easy to cross reference or track to other entries which are listed, of course, alphabetically[with authorities and sources]An excellent appendix is provided that covers much referenced source material and that really did point me in the right direction. A lot of work has gone into bringing this material together and the author deserves maximum credit for his scholarship and deceptively full and comprehensive bibliography. First stop if you are interested in Angels...good or bad

I use this book for research in my writing and have found it invaluable. There are pictures added in black and white, it's just a shame that some of them aren't in colour.
wasn't what I expected, just a listing of angels in a very rigid dictionary format, I expected more information on the angels listed, instead of just a basic description, not...Read more
