Abstract

In this review article the author discusses at some length four important recent studies on various aspects of ancient postbiblical Jewish angelology (by M. Mach, S. Olyan, M.J. Davidson, and R. Elior). He demonstrates that by renewed study of sources already known for a long time but also by investigation of sources made available only recently, real progress has been made in our understanding of the processes behind the enormous growth of these angelic speculations, of the motives behind the naming of angels, and of the dangers for monotheism that lurked in this development (angelolatry).
