From the Primum Mobile, Dante ascends to a region beyond physical existence, the Empyrean, which is the abode of God. Beatrice, representing theology, is here transformed to be more beautiful than ever before, and Dante becomes enveloped in light, rendering him fit to see God (Canto XXX): "Like sudden lightning scattering the spirits of sight so that the eye is then too weak to act on other things it would perceive,such was the living light encircling me, leaving me so enveloped by its veil of radiance that I could see no thing.The Love that calms this heaven always welcomes into Itself with such a salutation, to make the candle ready for its flame St.
Jewish angelic hierarchy
Angels in Judaism (angel: Hebrew: מַלְאָךְ mal’āḵ, plural mal’āḵīm) appear throughout the Hebrew Bible, Talmud, Rabbinic literature, and traditional Jewish liturgy.

The Paradiso assumes the medieval view of the Universe, with the Earth surrounded by concentric spheres containing planets and stars. The Paradiso begins at the top of Mount Purgatory, at noon on the Wednesday after Easter. After ascending through the sphere of fire believed to exist in the earth's upper atmosphere (Canto I), Beatrice guides Dante through the nine celestial spheres of Heaven, to the Empyrean, which is the abode of God. The nine spheres are concentric, as in the standard medieval geocentric model of cosmology, which was derived from Ptolemy. During the course of his journey, Dante meets and converses with several blessed souls. "But all those souls grace the Empyrean; and each of them has gentle life though some sense the Eternal Spirit more, some less However, for Dante's benefit (and the benefit of his readers), he is "as a sign" shown various souls in planetary and stellar spheres that have some appropriate connotation.

Christian traditions originating from Greek- and Syriac-speaking populations Major Eastern Christian bodies include the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Oriental Orthodox Churches, along with those groups descended from the historic Church of the East, as well as the Eastern Catholic Churches (which have either re-established or always retained communion with Rome and maintain Eastern liturgies), and the Eastern Protestant churches (which are Protestant in theology but Eastern in cultural practice). The various Eastern churches do not normally refer to themselves as "Eastern", with the exception of the Assyrian Church of the East and the Ancient Church of the East. Historically, after the loss of the Levant in the 7th century to the Islamic Sunni Caliphate, the term Eastern Church was used for the Greek Church centred in Byzantium, in contrast with the (Western) Latin Church, centered on Rome, which uses the Latin liturgical rites.

Shifting the lens to the world of differentiation or individuation, the metaphor of 'the Birdtribes' is also evoked in reference to angels, starseeds, benevolent interdimensional entities, divine and timely messengers. Bird Tribes throughout history - Both interpretations of the Bird Tribes - that is, of divine inspiration and benevolent individuated entity - are featured in the iconography of virtually every Indigenous, religious and/or folk tradition. Animistic and shamanic traditions the world over - from Ancient Greece and Rome to Africa and Native America - observe the appearance and movements of birds as portents - whether good or ill. As a Greek philosopher remarked,"The gods did not reveal all to human beings - but humans, as they apply themselves, learn more".
