Throne Angel Gallere

This is where we'll put pictures and descriptions of the Throne Angels you have seen. The stories about how you met them will go over in the Bulletin Board. I think that's a good way to do it, right?

STill my favorite angel book is "A Book of Angels" by Sophie Burnham from 1990. On the back cover: "When Sophie Burnham wrote A BOOK OF ANGELS she inspired a phenomenon. An instant best-seller when it was originally published, etc." It's great.

 Here's what Sophie Burnham says about Thrones:

 "Dionysius the Pseudo-Areopagite was a Syrian. He wrote four obtuse books of mysticism, full of literary artiface, one being De Heirarchia Celesti, about the nature and properties of angels. . . . According to the Pseudo-Dionysius, the three highest aangels are the Old Testament seraphim, cherubim, and thrones."

 "THRONES bring God's justice to us. They are sometimes called wheels and in the Jewish Kabalah, CHARIOTS or the MERKABAH. The occult book, the Zohar, ranks wheels above seraphim, but other sources place them as cherubim, the whole thing being confused. The ruling prince is Oriphiel or Zabkiel or Zaphel."

 Thanks, Sophie!

I'll start it off with my own special Throne Angel, Eiron. Throne angels are kingly fellows and Eiron is no exception. He's about 9 feet tall sitting down (he fits under our nine foot ceilings) so he's probably about 15 feet tall standing up. Does anybody know if Throne Angels ever do stand up? He's surrounded with light and glory always and looks kind of like the Ghost of Christmas Present in this one book of A Christmas Carol I have. He looks so harsh sometimes, but when he recognizes me he always smiles and that makes my heart warm instantly.

This is Bits and here's my Throne Angel,
I thought he was an animus spirit until Marsha started studying Throne Angels and I realized that he's one of them. He wears dark robes, purple almost black, and has beautiful radiant black wings that shimmer with oily rainbows. He's sitting on something, but it's so low you can't really see what it is, probably a stool or a branch he uses as his throne. He's always surrounded by music and incense.
