While I accept the existance of angels - I don't know about the whole heirarchy stuff and I don't really contemplate how many of them fit on the head of a pin;-)
I do remember reading about angels in Thomas Aquinas' where he addressed the idea of angels with an approach known as Scholasticism (a combination of philosophy and Scripture). I remember thinking it was interesting at the time - but don't recall much now.
The Catholic Encyclopedia also has a pretty extensive entry on angels and the sources for the information.
But like I said - none of this is Catholic dogma. It's theolgoical concepts and ideas and discussions.
