From angel +‎ lore.

Noun edit

angel-lore (uncountable)

  1. The knowledge, doctrine, study, or history of angels.
    • 1967, Joshua Trachtenberg, Jewish Magic and Superstition:
      We may readily believe this when we learn that every single thing on earth, animate or inanimate, from man through all of creation, birds and beasts, trees and brooks, even to the last blade of grass, owns its angelic representative above. This is the heart of the angel-lore.
    • 2011, Gary E. Schwartz, The Sacred Promise:
      [...] the origin and meaning of the name Sam and only one person knew, meaning it was not common knowledge—I asked a cohort of people who actually knew something about angel lore if they had ever heard of an angel named Sophia.
