E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Angelic Doctor.
Thomas Aqui’nas was so called, because he discussed the knotty points in connection with the being and nature of angels. An example is, “Utrum An’gelus moveatur de loco ad locum transeundo per me’dium?” The Doctor says that it depends upon circumstances.   1
        It is said, by way of a quiz, that one of his questions was: “How many angels can dance on the point of a pin?”
