Seraphim by Vitaly S. Alexius

A seraph (pl. seraphim) is a type of celestial being in Judaism and Christianity. Literally “burning ones”, the word is normally a synonym for serpents when used in the Hebrew Bible,( Thora )┬ábut they are mentioned in the Book of Isaiah as fiery six-winged beings attending on God.

They appear again as celestial beings in an influential Hellenistic work, the Book of Enoch, and a little later in the Book of Revelation. They occupy the fifth of ten ranks of the hierarchy of angels in medieval and modern Judaism, and the highest rank in the Christian angelic hierarchy.
