reader comments: angels
24 Apr 1999
Your description of angels is based on the writing "On the Celestial Hierarchy" by a 5th century author using the pseudonym of "Dionysius the Areopagite" (and others who expanded on his themes). These writings are only accepted by the Catholic Church (and only marginally), some cults, and various mystic organizations (as you mention).
reply: I'm glad to hear there is not widespread belief in this celestial hierarchy.
