14.2.2019, 15 hrs: Women’s talk: About men in white robes and winged Nike goddesses – the development of the angel motif in the Bible and in art

Winged spiritual beings have already been known in the Orient. The Bible describes complete heavenly angelic hierarchies and terrifying “men in luminous robes”, which over time become friendly, maidenly and sometimes purely decorative creatures in art history. The women’s talk discusses how this development took place.
