All the major monotheistic religions (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Islamic, Jewish) for centuries have also believed in the existence of a large hierarchy of angels rebels against God the Creator, commanded by Satan, founded on the Bible.

These angels, without being able to change their minds, fell once and forever out of Paradise, because of their pride and infidelity, which made them enemies of man and creation. The religious culture of the Mesopotamian area has developed some beliefs about angels, indicated here with the term sukkal, which will reverberate in subsequent monotheisms.

The role of the Babylonian angel is that of messenger-envoy of the god: the sukkal of Marduk is, for example, Nabu, that of Anu is Papsukkal while that of Inanna is Mummu.

The “angels” play a fundamental role in the Zoroastrian religion instead.
Zoroastrianism is the religion founded by the Iranian prophet Zarathuštra presumably between the tenth and eighth centuries BC. and that it will have a significant influence on Judaism and Christianity itself. This religious faith presupposes the existence of a single God indicated by the name of Ahura Mazdā (He who creates with thought) wise, omniscient and supreme good who at the origin of time created two superior spirits (mainyu) plus a series of secondary spirits.

Quote by Alessandro Brizzi.

As you may have noticed, I focused only on these 2 religions where, however, there is a close connection between the Angels and how they are depicted … I think and assume that they were depicted with wings because of their non-belonging to this world, or to the physical representation that literally flew … But what could be more plausible is the fact that they were portrayed like this because they simply were like that! What if they were like that? Can we finally undertake a study of their origins? Very significant is the ancient history where he speaks that the Angels were actually the Nephilim, which happened to be mentioned in all historical books, perhaps with different names but similar characteristics. A fact is very relevant … That is what in the beginning not only humans but other races … aliens? What do you think about it?
