ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of the heavenly ávaToƛń. First, the visitation gives a strong impression of a divine figure. Secondly, from the evidence of the LXX and elsewhere in the Gospel of Luke, the advent of the figure from on high points clearly to a heavenly origin for the ávaToƛń. Third, though less conclusively, the reference to Isaiah 9 LXX strengthens the impression of an angelic rules figure.
