I'm surprised you don't mention Knausgaard's beautifully evocative and exhaustive novel and history of the evolution of angels "A Time for All Things" or the incredibly rich treatment of angels as doubles in Volume 1 of Sloterdijk's "Spheres", "Bubbles." These are two contemporary, highly literate and researched books that deal extensively with angels -- while neither writer is a scientist, your discussion seems to suggest that you are speaking of angels in a kind of void, whereas it seems to me the concept is being taken up in quite serious terms by the philosophical and literary elite.
