Seraph

Redirected from Seraphim

According to Christian angelology[?], the seraphim are the highest order of angels, serving as the caretakers of God's throne and continuously singing his praises (seraphim is the plural of seraph). Prior to his fall from grace, Lucifer was counted among the seraphim, outshining all others. Seraphim are often depicted as 6 wings radiating from a center either concealing a body or without a body.
