What are Fairies?
Fairies are diminutive, magical beings in human form. Fairies are thought to be ethereal and often have wings. Fairies are thought to be endowed with the powers of magic and enchantment. In ancient times Christians thought that fairies were the ancestors of the ancient pagan gods, who, having been replaced by newer deities, were hostile. Others identified fairies with the souls of the dead, particularly the unbaptized, or with fallen angels.
