An angel was a spiritual being believed to be messengers and warriors of God in by certain religions, including Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.[1]

The book The Hierarchie of the Blessed Angells, written by Thomas Heywood and published in 1635, detailed the hierarchy of angels accepted in Christian belief at the time, including their names, orders, and offices.[2][3] It also related the story of how Lucifer and other wicked angels were cast out of heaven.[3]

Petunia Dursley frequently stated that her son, Dudley, looked like a "baby angel" when he was a child.[4]
