The history in angels posters

Although Judaism, Islam and Christianity all acknowledge the existence of angels, they are not the only faiths to believe in these spiritual beings. Zoroastrianism, for example, believes that each person has their own guardian angel called. Despite the obvious religious connotations, you do not have to be spiritual to have an appreciation for these angels posters. The style and beauty of these motifs transcends the religious aspect, if you choose to do so, of course. Nonetheless, the recurring theme within the theology of angels, and accepted by many of the above named religions, is that they are messengers of some kind. The word angel itself is a hybrid fusion of the Old English and French etymology, both of which were borne from the Latin angelus which is derived from the ancient Greek angelos which means messenger. Make your angels posters the messenger of relaxation and sophistication in your rooms. Angels are also considered to be representations of God and to act on behalf of Him, making this kind of wall decor really meaningful and deep.

Different types

Most people lump angels into one category, but there are actually three spheres when it comes to angels in Christianity. In the first sphere, you will find angels that are said to be direct servants of God, like the Seraphim, the highest rank of angel and one of the most prominent in angels posters. There are also Cherubs who originally were created to guard the Garden of Eden. They are commonly depicted as baby angels, which is not how cherubs are described biblically but the image became popularized in Baroque art as a symbol for God. You can see this kind in angels posters such as "Two Angels, Raffaello Santi". Then there are also Thrones, which are named as such because they are the angels that carry God’s throne. In the second sphere reside the angels who rule over Earth, such as the Dominions, Virtues and Powers or Authorities. The third sphere contains angels whose primary job is helping humans, they are guides, messengers and protectors. You will see plenty of each in angels posters by Photowall.
