Background

A description of the experience

Robert Stephen Hawker

Angels have no wings, not a single feather. Whensoever in the Old Testament or the New Testament they actually appear, they are expressly said to be 'young men in white garments'...... wings, moreover are to me destructive of all poetry of motion from place to place. They imply effort. The angels glide on the chariots and horses of their own desires. One in Syria is fain to be in Egypt and immediately is there; just as we think in one scene of a distant spot and at once our minds behold it without consciousness of the space between
