This is an angelic themed web set focusing on the Archangel Michael.  Michael (Micha'el, Mîkha-’e-l, Mikhaíl, Míchaël, Mikha'il) is an archangel that seems to appear in all Abrahamic faiths and spiritual traditions, albeit, often with vastly different interpretations as to his duties and purpose. His name translates as "He who is like God." Roman Catholics refer to him as Saint Michael the Archangel and also simply as Saint Michael ("Saint" is a title meaning "holy", and is not meant to indicate that Michael is a human soul in heaven). Orthodox Christians refer to him as the Taxiarch ("Commander") or accords him the title Archistrategos, or Supreme Commander, of the Heavenly Hosts. Archangel Michael or simply Archangel Michael. Most often Michael is depicted with scales, sword, spear and/or shield (often the shield bears the Latin inscription: Quis ut Deus) in traditional art.

cherub bullet St Michael is considered in many Christian circles as the patron saint of the warrior. Perhaps his most singular honor was given to him in 1950 when Pope Pius XII (r. 1939-1958) named him patron of policemen.  Police officers and soldiers, particularly paratroopers, paramedics and othere emergency workers regard him as their patron saint.
cherub bullet It was Michael's fight with Samael (with the devil in Assumption of Moses, x.) which gave rise to the well-known legend of Michael and the dragon. This legend is not found in Jewish sources except insofar as Samael or Satan is called in the Kabbalah "the primitive serpent".
cherub bullet It would have been natural to St. Michael, the champion of the Jewish people, to be the champion also of Christians, giving victory in war to his clients. The early Christians, however, regarded some of the martyrs as their military patrons (example: St. George); and to St. Michael they gave the care of their sick. At the place where he was first venerated, in Phrygia, his prestige as angelic healer obscured his interposition in military affairs. Michael is reputed to have caused a healing spring to flow in the first century at Colossae, and his churches were frequently visited by the sick and lame.
cherub bullet The Catholic Church honors Michael with four main titles or offices. He is the Christian angel of death, carrying the souls of all the deceased to heaven, where they are weighed in his perfectly balanced scales. At the hour of death, Michael descends and gives each soul the chance to redeem itself before passing, thus consternating the devil and his minions. Michael is guardian of the Church. Last, he is the supreme enemy of Satan and the fallen angels.
cherub bullet In Latter-day Saint theology, Michael lived this mortal life as the patriarch Adam. Michael and Adam are regarded as the same individual; Adam being his mortal name and Michael being his pre-mortal/post-mortal name. Thus, all of the descendents of Adam are the earthly descendents of Michael.
cherub bullet Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus and the Archangel Michael are the same being. They believe that Jesus/Michael was the first being created by Jehovah and through whom he made the universe, the angels and mankind. In this pre-human existence he was known as the Word of God. He later took human form as Jesus and led a life without sin. After his death on a torture stake, Jesus was resurrected in his previous spiritual form.
cherub bullet In Islamic tradition Michael always appears as second to Gabriel. Michael, or Mikhail, is also believed to be the angel associated with the delivery of blessings.  In Islam, it is popularly believed that there are countless angels. Therefore, it is also popularly believed that the named angels are the head of departments; i.e. Michael is the chief angel of blessings.
cherub bullet Some Esotericists associate Michael with the color Red, the direction South and the element Fire. However, in the Kabbalistic work, the Bahir, states that Michael is in fact attributed to the element Water.
cherub bullet In other forms of mytsicism, Michael is said to be the spirit of the planet Mercury or the Sun. He is ruler over Sunday and Thursday. He is the alchemy of motivation, activation and achievement. He is said to be bringer of the gift of patience, and the angel of careers, courage, achievements, ambitions, motivation, and life tasks. Michael's candle colors are orange, white and gold. His color energies are orange, violet, white, crystal, gold, and brown.
