The highest archangels are also known as aeons or archons.

MICHAEL is the most powerful and warlike angel, famous as the leader of Heaven's armies in the war against Satan.He is also the angel who will weigh all human souls in his scales on the Day of Judgment.



GABRIEL is the Angel of Annunciation, who announces to the Virgin Mary that she will be the mother of Christ. As an angel associated with childbirth, Gabriel touches each baby on the lip just before birth, so that the infant soul will forget its pre-existing knowledge of Heaven. The mark of Gabriel's touch is the cleft between lip and nose.



RAPHAEL is the angel of healing, health and happiness. He is also the angel most commonly charged with guarding the Tree of Life, a mighty tree usually located in the Upper Paradise, whose branches represent the structure of the universe.

URIEL is or was one of the four greatest angels in Christianity. Associated with fire and thunder, he is also an Angel of Destruction and an Angel of Punishment. He carries the terrifying Sword of God. When Church leaders decided in 745 AD that angels were becoming too popular as objects of worship, Uriel was removed from the list of officially recognised angels.

AZRAEL is one of the four great angels of Islam. He managed to perform a task which had defeated the other archangels when he forced the Earth to give up the seven handfuls of dirt needed by God in order to create Adam. For this, he was rewarded with the position of Angel of Death. He learns who is due to die when a leaf bearing that person's name falls from a tree growing just below the throne of God. If a person is reluctant to die, he tempts the soul out of the body by placing under his or her nostrils an apple from the legendary Tree of Life.

METATRON is the most powerful of all angels in some non-canonical writings. In fact, he is the prophet Enoch transformed. His size is extraordinary, as wide and long as the Earth itself. He also has 36 pairs of wings, more than 72 different names, and 365,000 eyes. (The other contender for sheer size is Sandalphon: it is said to take 500 years to journey from Sandalphon's toes to the top of his head.) Metatron is the Chancellor of Heaven and the keeper of the Heavenly archives.
