Reviews

"The essays in this volume are cogent and painstakingly researched. They explore aspects of the early modern period that have not been widely examined...This volume will without a doubt appeal to scholars of early modern religious and cultural history a well as those of art history and literary studies." --Richard F. Johnson, Harper College: The Catholic Historical Review
"Rarely does a collection of essays hold together so tightly as this one, which is likely to inspire a spate of studies of angels in the early modern world."
Laura Smoller, Renaissance Quarterly
"...co-editors Peter Marshall and Alexandra Walsham provide a helpful overview of the place of angels in Christian history." -Timothy Masch, H-German
