A Cherub, plural Cherubim, is a four-winged angel in Christianity. It also has four faces, a lion face, an eagle face, a human face, and an ox face, and their bodies are covered with eyes. They appear in such a way in both the Book of Ezekiel and the Apocalypse of St. John. The only ones who rank above them are in order Seraphim, Archangels, Metatron, and God Himself. In the English-speaking world, these angels are commonly confused with Putti (infant-like angels who represent God's omniscience) although markedly different.
Putti are often mistakenly called "Cherubim" in English; they are the small infants with wings in Raphaelite artwork.
