Angels we have heard on high

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:

( Reprised/abridged).

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?

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
