A Guardian Angel is an angel assigned to protect and guide a particular
person or group. Belief in guardian angels can be traced throughout all antiquity. The concept of angels and their
hierarchy was extensively developed in Christianity in the 5th century by Pseudo-Dionysius the
The theology of angels has undergone many refinements since the 400s. Belief in both the
East and the West is that guardian angels serve to protect whichever person God assigns them to, and present prayer
to God on that person's behalf.
The belief that God sends a angel to watch every individual was common in Ancient Greek
philosophy, and was alluded to by Plato.
In Matthew 18:10, Jesus says of children: "See that you do not look down on one of these
little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven." This is often
understood to mean that children are protected by guardian angels, and appears to be corroborated by Hebrews 1:14
when speaking of angels, "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs
In Acts 12:12-15 there is another allusion to the belief that a specific angel is assigned
to protect each individual. After Peter had been escorted out of prison by an angel, he went to the home of 'Mary
the mother of John, also called Mark'. The servant girl, Rhoda, recognized his voice and ran back to tell the group
that Peter was there. However the group replied, "It must be his angel." With this scriptural sanction, Peter's
angel was the most commonly depicted guardian angel in art, and was normally shown in images of the subject, most
famously Raphael's fresco of the Deliverance of Saint Peter in the Vatican.
The first Christian theologian to outline a specific scheme for guardian angels was
Honorius of Autun in the 12th century. He said that every soul was assigned a guardian angel the moment it was put
into a body. Scholastic theologians augmented and ordered the taxonomy of angelic guardians. Thomas Aquinas agreed
with Honorius and believed that it was the lowest order of angels who served as guardians, and his view was most
successful in popular thought, but Duns Scotus said that any angel might accept the mission.
Centuries later, in his 1997 Regina Caeli address, Pope John Paul II referred to the
concept of guardian angel twice, and concluded the address with the statement: "Let us invoke the Queen of angels
and saints, that she may grant us, supported by our guardian angels, to be authentic witnesses to the Lord's
