"...in the heavenly places"

Just finished a discussion on the meaning of this phrase, “in the heavenly places.” In particular who are these powers and authorities that are being shown, “…the manifold wisdom of God…”? A recent translation rendered it, “powers in heaven,” but the Greek, ev tois epouravois, and the Latin, in caelestibus, seem more descriptive of a general spiritual place, “in the heavens.”
