Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article was to present ideas, e.g. on the angelology and demonology and superstitious practices, in the teaching of nineteenth-century’s rabbis, representatives of the Wissenschaft des Judentums movement. The analysed works: sermons, scientific publications and press releases, especially those written by the brothers David, Hermann and Manuel Joël, as well as examples of statements by other rabbis, scientists of the period, allowed to bring their spirituality and teaching concerning spiritual beings and magical practices associated with them. In teaching this unquestionably the most attention, however, they devoted to God and man, their mutual relationship based on Covenant and religion, and no angels or demons.
