A-Z: General definitions: Seraph


Seraphs were winged serpents whose images decorated many of the thrones of the Egyptian Pharaohs, thought to act as guardians over the king. The Israelites adopted the symbolism for God's throne. The prophet Isaiah saw the seraphim (plural of 'seraph') as agents of God who prepared him to give God's message to Judah. See Angels.
