The Thrones (lat. thronus, pl. throni) are a class of celestial beings mentioned by Paul of Tarsus in Colossians 1:16 (New Testament) and related to the throne of God the Father. They are living symbols of God’s justice and authority. According to the New Testament, these high celestial beings are among those Orders at the Christ’s service.The Thrones are mentioned again in Revelation 11:16.

The corresponding order of angels in Judaism is called the “abalim” or “arelim”/”erelim”. The Ophanim (Wheels or Galgallin) is a different class of higher liberated celestial beings, under many Christian angelic hierarchies, that are also known as the “Thrones”, from Daniel 7:9 (Old Testament). They are the carriers of the throne of God, hence the name. They are said to be great wheels covered in eyes.
