Seraphim


Seraphim, Hebrew "fiery serpents," are an order of angels assigned to different angelologies by varies theological systems. In the Kabbalah they correspond to the Geburah, the Fifth Sepirah of the Tree of Life, and seen as angels of judgment. In Christianity, by contrast, the Seraphim are the highest nine orders of angels, and are preeminently angels of love. A.G.H.
