THE THRONES: Just, upright, rigorous, they inspire the representations of order on Earth. They are traditionally and symbolically associated with severity and the most extreme hardness. Yes, the Thrones are severe and they govern God's right action. It is they, without a doubt, who structure the material world, who make it a place in which the divine Majesty can come to rest. This is what made St. Gregory the Great say: "In the visible world, everything is governed by invisible creatures."
