History of Angel Stories
Angel stories are an ancient tradition.
Angels and angel stories pre-date the
oldest Hebrew texts of the bible. The
Sumerians, who pre-date even the Egyptian
society, are the oldest recorded ancient
civilization who used winged humans in
their carvings and statues. The Sumerians
tell the oldest known angel stories of
“messengers of the gods” who would
intervene between the “gods” and men.
Angel stories since permeate throughout
ancient and most primitive cultures, as
winged beings seem to be found within
most all of their artwork and lore.
In the earliest books of the bible, we read
many angel stories concerning their
intervention between God and man. These
angel stories always seem to depict angels
as human in appearance. In bible stories
about angels, they have appeared as
messengers, protectors, destroyers, guides
and healers. Mythology also had its share
of winged messengers, and these angel
stories most likely influenced many famous
artists over the centuries to paint and
sculpt angels with wings. Perhaps the
wings are an artist's way of conveying the
story of an angel’s “higher place,” that
Interestingly enough, a Christian leader, St.
Augustine, described angels simply as
spirits. He believed that an angel’s "office"
is messenger, and not their nature. Thus to
St. Augustine, anyone bearing a message
can be an angel. This seems to make
sense, as the Greek and Hebrew words
translated as angel mean, "a messenger."
Although angel stories can be found within
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, it should
also be noted that some ancient cultures
(in addition to Sumeria) had stories of
angels. Babylon, Persia, Egypt, Greece as
well as Eastern religions (such as
Buddhism and Hinduism) also tell the tales
of benevolant spirit beings interacting with
mankind, though they may have been
known by different names.
Our collection of angel stories are
interesting to read, as they often describe
visitors that are human in appearance,
typically bringing a message or assistance
of some kind to people. Though we have
categorized them in an attempt to make it
easier to identify similar experiences, angel
stories always seem to bring a
life-changing experience to the one who
experiences such dramatic an event.
Perhaps the most interesting of angel
stories are those that tell of mysterious
visitors who often come in a time of need,
provide help and then leave as quick as
they surfaced, all without any indication
that they are spirit visitors! Their form, and
speech seem as solid and earthly as one
would expect seeing from another human,
but how can we explain the way these
angels seem to show up out of nowhere
and during times of dire strait? Truly a
supernatural visitation by those who must
be watching, and somehow overseeing
what occurs in our lives.
We suggest reading the Padgett angel
messages that tell of heavens and hells, as
a supplement to reading the angel stories
found within our archives.
