Handmade Byzantine Icon of Angel of the Lord.
Angels are incorporeal creations of God with knowledge superior to that of humans. In the Christian tradition, Angels have different roles according to their hierarchy.
The knowledge of the heavens is left to the Angels Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones. The performing of miracles and other holy actions are works of Dominions, Powers and Virtues. Finally, the hierarchy of Principalities, Archangels and Angels are at the service of God to carry out his orders and deliver his messages. In this hierarchy belong the Archangels Michael and Gabriel.
The choirs of myriad Angels have appeared in many characters of the Scriptures while they are known to advocate for the protection of man.
