Anagoge is a Greek word suggesting a "climb" or "ascent" upwards. The anagogical is a method of spiritual interpretation of literal statements or events, especially the Scriptures.
Theologians describe four methods of interpreting the Scriptures: literal/historical, allegorical, tropological (moral), and anagogical. Hugh of St. Victor, in De scripturis et scriptoribus sacris, distinguished anagoge from allegory. The latter is when a visible fact is signified by another visible fact. Anagoge, on the other hand, is ‘leading above,’ when by a visible fact an invisible is declared.
In the TV show Angel, anagogic demons were able to read a being's aura, an example of the demons is Lorne, who reads people and demon's auras when they sing karaoke.
