Angels we have heard on high


The National Gallery in the UK is producing a series of short videos on angels based on paintings in their collection.  They are a delightful exploration of the meaning and presence of angels in art and in the psyche.  The first two videos are linked below:

The angel videos produced by The National Gallery are lovely.

Angels pass through that permeable boundary between mythology and metaphysics. "Eternal God, you have ordained and constituted in a wonderful order the ministries of angels and mortals..."

In our time when popular mythology, especially that of the younger crowd, is filled with everything from pointy eared Vulcans to light saber wielding Jedi to pouty angst filled vampires, how could showings on the theme of angels not be of interest?
