How many angels can dance on the head of a Pin?

Angels-on-the-head-of-a-pinThis medieval riddle has been debated for hundreds of years.

Here are two interesting answers:

  • Between 1 and 30 vigintillion (The comic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal)
  • We are reminded that ‘an angel is not corporeal and that for an angel it makes no difference whether the sphere of his activity be the point of a needle or a continent’. (St Thomas)

In this realm of the mystical I have painted 72 angels in colour-form The 72 angels of the Kabballah.

Various people and organisations have been working in this field in recent years, including Aura-Soma for whom I designed the New Aeon Tarot deck, launched in 2005.

This new project is a personal one which has followed on from the Tarot in which Kabballah-based symbolism is used and the angels are an integral part.
