Tiffany's Swedenborgian Angels

Editor's Note: The windows featured in this gallery are the handiwork of the famous artist Louis Comfort Tiffany and were first presented as a gift from one church to another in 1902. Both churches were Swedenborgian, a thriving theological movement in the 19th and 20th centuries that emphasized the significance of angels—their presence among us, their involvement with daily life, and their model of the kinds of beings humans will one day become.

The following gallery is presented as part of the Patheos Book Club, which is proud to feature a new book devoted to the windows, Tiffany's Swedenborgian Angels: Stained Glass Windows Representing the Seven Churches from the Book of Revelation. Each slide contains a description of the angel and a suggested prayer.

Enjoy the gallery, then head to the Book Club for more on Tiffany's Swedenborgian Angels.
