Abstract: The subject of this discourse is the kind of the role angels have in the life of a soul at the moment of death as well as in the life hereafter and its methods of expression in art. It shall be pointed out how the implicit kindness and the support of the Guardian Angel to an individual soul, the significance of rewards for living a true life is pictured through the confrontation of the good and the evil in images with St. Michael Archangel. The subject is analysed by references to some examples of sacral art of Lithuania of the 16th –18th centuries. The discourse is a preface, an introduction to a far-reaching subject. The aim is to represent the journey of a soul and the contact with angels in chronological order, from man’s infancy to the attainment of salvation, thus showing the continual mysterious “friendship” with angels
