I'm fascinated with the idea of angels so was so excited to have this chat with Stephen Miller, author of 'The book of Angels: Seen and Unseen.' What does the word 'angel' actually mean? What actually are angels? Are they all the same? Where did belief in angels come from? What is the best film to watch about them plus much much more! Stephen mentions quite a few pieces of art so here is a list of them so you don't have to write them down!
