Yet another belief is that the fairies were an intelligent species, distinct from humans and angels. In alchemy in particular they were regarded as elementals, such as gnomes and sylphs, as described by Paracelsus. This is uncommon in folklore, but accounts describing the fairies as ‘spirits of the air’ have been found. The belief in their angelic nature was common in Theosophist circles.
