In medieval and renaissance Europe angels were a topic in which theology, natural philosophy and politics converged. This conference will bring together historians of these fields and critics working on visual, musical and literary representation, to consider medieval and renaissance concepts of the nature, office and significance of angels, and the ways in which literal and figurative dialogues with angels were conducted.
