THE NINE CHOIRS OF HEAVEN. An info-graphic for my editorial class and god am I thankful it’s done. Way too much went into this than what I had time for, but hey… I actually kind of like it?
Now excuse me, I must return to my fashion major lifestyle and go sew a coat u_u
EDIT: Re-uploaded with easier viewing!
man angel lore is so fascinating. esp with seraphim cherubim and thrones because there’s like a bajillion different interpretations and orderings. like a lot of the time thrones are on top and are presented as either god’s literal throne or the wheels of his chariot. man just mythic lore in general is so cool i love mythic lore this is great i love it
And this is but one of the hierarchies. This one, I believe, was created by Pseudo Dionysius (Dionysius the Areopagite).
Jewish sources like Maimonides and the Kabbalah (well, sorta, in one interpretation) organize them differently.
Can’t talk much about Islam or other religions and how they organize similar beings.
