Writings About the Angels

Besides what is found in the Bible, here are some Catholic writings on the Angels. This list is not complete nor neccessarily authoritative.

Saint Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica:
Saint Denys [Dionysius the (Psuedo-) Areopagite]: The Celestial Hierarchy. And another version of the same.

Saint Bonaventure, "De angelorum natura", not found online.

Catechism of the Catholic Church, The Angels

Catholic Encyclopedia article on Angels

Saint Jerome, Commentary on Daniel

Tertullian, Against Marcion, Book II (see Chapter 8 and other following chapters), Against Praxeas.

Saint Augustine, City of God, Book X, Book XI, Book XII.

Saint Justin Martyr, Second Apology (see Chapter 5)


  1. Jean Danielou wrote a study of the angels in the Fathers of the Church. I believe Loomes' Theological has copies for sale.
