An angel is a supernatural being in various religions. The theological study of angels is known as angelology. Catholicism often depict them as benevolent celestial intermediaries between God (or Heaven) and humanity. Other roles include protectors and guides for humans, and servants of God. Some angels have specific names (such as Gabriel or Michael) or titles (such as seraph or archangel). Those expelled from Heaven are called fallen angels, distinct from the heavenly host. This image was originally drawn by Martin Schongauer in the 15th century.
