ANGEL-RELATED ITEMS:
(skip down to angel names)

HIERARCHIES: According to pseudo-Dionysius, there are three hierarchies, each consisting of three choirs (orders). They are:

  1. Seraphim, Cherubim, and Thrones, serving as heavenly counselors.

  2. Principalities, Virtues, and Powers, serving as governors.

  3. Dominions, Archangels, and Angels, serving as messengers. 

This list was altered and expanded on in the Middle Ages, as follows:

  1. Seraphim, Cherubim, and Archangels, serving as heavenly counselors.

  2. Dominions, Virtues, Principalities, Rulers, Authorities, Powers, and Thrones, serving as governors.

  3. Angels, servings as messengers.

ANGELS: The Angels are the most familiar to mankind. The word comes from Greek angelos/aggelos, meaning "messenger; envoy; announcer." The Hebrew is mal'ach, meaning "messenger." It is said that the main concern of Angels is human affairs, including acting as messengers and envoys between heaven and earth. However, the idea of angelic beings communicating with mankind has largely vanished from popular belief. 

ARCHANGELS: Archangel is a compound word composed of Greek arch "higher, original" and angelos "messenger," hence "high messenger" or "original messenger." In Christianity, the Archangels number seven; in the Koran, four. They tend to endeavors of great importance to mankind, and act as administrators to the other heavenly beings.

In Jewish astrology, the Archangels are associated with the planets as follows:

  1. Raphael/Sun

  2. Gabriel/Moon

  3. Michael/Mercury

  4. Anael (Aniel)/Venus

  5. Samael/Mars

AUTHORITIES: These "governors" are the authors of documents and doctrines pertaining to the ideologies formulated by the Rulers and Powers

CHERUBIM [sing. cherub]: Depending upon which tradition one follows, the Cherubim have two sets of wings, and anywhere from one to four faces, either with anthropomorphic features, or they have one face each of man, ox, lion, and eagle. They have also been described as having the stature and hands of a man, and cloven feet like Satan, yet they bear wings like deities. They are the guardians of light and stars, and in Genesis, they are described as guardians of the Tree of Life, along with a flaming sword. When God was still making personal appearances on Earth, the cherubim were described as His living chariot, perhaps synonymous with the "wings of the wind" mentioned in Psalms xviii, and 2 Samuel xxii: "And he rode upon a cherub and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind." Ezekiel described the cherubim as having many eyes "like burning coals of fire." The word, cherub, may be related to Assyrian kirabu, the name of a winged bull-god, or to Akkadian kuribu and Babylonian karabu, both meaning "blessed" and applying to spirits who served the gods as advisors and intermediaries. [Note: the bible mentions the cherubim in Gen. 3:24; Ezek. 10:17-20; and 1 Kings 6:23-28.]

DOMINIONS aka HASHMALLIM: The Dominions oversee the duties of the lower angels, and keep the cosmos in order. [Note: The word dominions is mentioned by Paul in Col. 1:16, and in Eph. 1:21 where it translates to Kyriotes in Greek. But it is not known if Paul was referring to the dominions of angels or men.]

POWERS: The Powers are said to resemble a psychedelic mist or haze, and are said to be the bearers of conscience and keepers of history. They are the angels of birth and death, but they are mainly concerned with philosophy and theology, and the distribution of power among mankind. Ancient Syrian tradition gave the Powers governance over the sun. [Note: In Eph. 1:21, and Col. 1:16, the word power translates to exousiai in Greek, and potestates in Latin.]

PRINCIPALITIES: The Principalities are said to resemble light-rays, and to be the guardian angels of the world's countries and nations whose political, military, and economic issues are their main concern, including deciding who among humanity will be rulers.

RULERS: The Rulers are the developers of ideologies which are documented by the Authorities

SERAPHIM [sing. Seraph]: The six-winged Seraphim are said to emanate such a bright light that not even other divinities can bear to gaze upon them; for this reason, they are also known as "the fiery ones" or "burning ones." Their duties consist of protecting, and caring for God's throne and singing His praise: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts. All the earth is filled with His Glory." Some Christians believe that Satan was a Seraphim before his fall from Heaven, ranking second in power to God and sporting twelve wings. [Note: the bible mentions the Seraphim in Isaiah 6:1-7.]

THRONES aka Ophanim [sing. ophan]: The Thrones have been described as tiny color-shifting spheres, as well as a wheel that moves back and forth set within another wheel that moves sideways and has numerous eyes. The Thrones are the "wheels" seen by Ezekiel, and by John in Revelation. They are called Thrones because it is their duty to carry God's throne; however their main concerns are political, military, and economic. They are connected with the planets, as well as four constellations of the zodiac: Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, and Scorpio. Ophanim derives from Hebrew ophan "wheel," from aphan, "to revolve, turn." [Note: Thrones are mentioned by Paul in Col. 1:16, but it is not known if he was referring to the Angelic Thrones.]

URIM and THUMMIM: The words Urim and Thummium come from Hebrew ur "light" and thum "perfection" + the masculine plural suffix -im, hence "light and perfection." Urim and Thummim are sometimes called the angels of light and illumination, but in the bible they are described as stones or some kind of oracular instrument prepared by God with which revelation could be received by the user. "And you shall put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim, and they shall be over Aaron's heart when he goes in before the LORD." (Ex. 28:30). The breastplate, worn by High Priests, had 12 gemstones mounted on it, each inscribed with a name of the twelve tribes of Israel. It is believed by some that the device functioned as a kind of ouija board with the Urim ("lights") flashing coded messages that High Priests translated with the Thummim ("decoder"). It is also said that at least three different Urim and Thummim existed in antiquity; the first was possessed by the brother of Jared; the second was given to Abraham, and the third was possessed by Moses. The bible mentions one individual who made a counterfeit breastplate in which he substituted teraphim for the Urim and Thummim. Even less is known about the mysterious teraphim.

VIRTUES aka FORTRESSES aka STRONGHOLDS: The Virtues reside beyond the Thrones and are equal in power to the Principalities. They are said to be the sparks of light that inspire mankind in the arts and sciences. The Virtues correspond to the planet Mars.
