Angelic Hosts

“Just as gods “stood by” the meetings of a city, so angels, thought Origen, attended church with each of the Christians, whom they guarded. They took pleasure in the reading of Scripture, although Christians were too sinful to see them with their own eyes. Before Constantine, therefore, the idea of a double Church, human and angelic, was known, although it was not emphasized in Christian ritual.” – Robin Lane Fox, Pagans and Christians.
