ICONOGRAPHY OF ANGELS

Iconography is the set of conventional images or symbols associated with a subject, especially a religious or legendary subject. In most contemporary Western religions angels are symbolized as human figures with wings, white robes, halos, and sometimes harps. These components represent various angelic characteristics: wings signify that angels are celestial beings, white robes and halos symbolize purity and holiness, and harps indicate that angels are engaged in making music in God’s praise.

The earliest records of the figure of an angel as commonly perceived today-as a winged messenger or mediator between heaven and earth-are found in the Middle Eastern religious traditions. In the city of Ur, near Babylon, which flourished around 2500 B.C., archaeologists have found a stele (an upright sculptured stone slab) depicting a winged figure descending from one of the seven heavens of Sumerian belief to pour water of life into the cup of a king.

The Babylonians also believed that each individual has a guardian being who intercedes with the gods on that person’s behalf. Cherubim, one of the three orders of angels closest to God, are depicted in Assyrian iconography as winged creatures with either human or lion faces and the bodies of sphinxes, eagles, or bulls.

Early Christian angel iconography became considerably more complex. The earliest angels were portrayed as young, masculine, and virile. This convention began to change in the Gothic period as artists started to depict angels as the embodiment of ideal beauty, which led, in turn, to the purely feminine angel of the Renaissance.

The convention of angels wearing white robes goes back to the earliest period. As Christianity spread across the Roman Empire, angels were sometimes represented garbed in white togas like those of the Roman senators to give them an air of dignity. In the Byzantine period angels sometimes appeared in the uniform of imperial court guards. In the Middle Ages, angels were often depicted with a scepter, a diadem, or a codex-all symbolic of divine power and authority.

It was not until the fourth century of the Christian era that angels acquired wings. Following classical conventions, winged figures were the messengers of the gods to humanity, as in the traditional representations of Mercury and Nike, the goddess of victory. The earliest example of a winged human figure in Christianity is found in S. Pudenziana in Rome as the symbol of St. Matthew.

It was also not until the fourth century that halos became part of the standard iconography of Christianity. Halos symbolize holiness, innocence, and sometimes spiritual power. The halo seems to have originally been a representation of the solar disk, and hence of the divinity’s association with the celestial realms.

Depending on the artist’s purpose, angels were represented in ways that contributed to the larger theme of the painting, mural, or sculpture. An angel reflecting an attitude of adoration, for instance, might carry a musical instrument (symbolizing praise) or swing a censer (representing prayer). Angels might also carry a lily (symbolizing purity), a palm leaf (victory), a scepter (God’s kingship), a flaming sword (judgment), or a trumpet (the voice of God).

The nine angel choirs also have distinctive iconographic conventions that make it possible to distinguish, for instance, cherubim from seraphim. (See also Architecture, Angels in; Art, Angels in)
