A Host of Angels

Lantern slides are a very good source for the depiction of angels. This is not surprising given that Church halls were frequently used for lantern shows.

So here is a selection, mainly rather beautiful, but in one case gruesome and beautiful at the same time.

Two of our slides, “Angels are near” and “the Spirits’ Flight” were used by Margaret Barker in her book “An extraordinary gathering of angels”.
