Images of Angels and Devils

Central European University Press has just brought out a collection looking at iconographic representations of angels and demons in Western and Eastern Christianity: Gerhard Jaritz, ed., Angels, Devils (CEU Medievalia, 2011), 205pp. + 70 illustrations.

This book, the publisher tells us, contains "Nine essays [that] discuss how supernatural phenomena found visual manifestations in Latin and Eastern Christianity as well as Judiaism in the late medieval and early renaissance period."

Fuller details are available in the publisher's catalogue (PDF), here.
