The definition of word "angel":
+3 rate 1. primarily in Western religions (i.e., Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam), any of numerous benevolent spiritual beings, powers or principles that mediate between the realm of the sacred (i.e., the transcendent realm) and the profane realm of time, space and cause and effect. Comparable beings in Eastern religions include the Hindu avatars and the Buddhist bodhisattvas. Functioning as messengers or servants of the deity (the term angel derives from the Greek word for messenger) or as guardians of individuals or nations, angels have been classified into ranks or hierarchies by theologians or philosophical thinkers of the major Western religions, of sects that have become religions in their own right (for example, Druze, a religion that developed from Islam) and of syncretistic movements (for example, Gnosticism, a religious dualistic-belief system that incorporated Jewish, Christian, Iranian and Hellenistic religious concepts and that viewed matter as evil, the spirit as good and salvation as being achieved by means of esoteric knowledge or gnosis). The number of such celestial beings in the rankingsoften 4, 7 or 12was generally based on the theory of planetary spheres in Hellenistic or Iranian astrology or on the hierarchy derived from Oriental monarchical government. In Zoroastrianism, a religion founded by the 6th-century-BC Persian reformer Zoroaster, the amesha spentas or bounteous immortals, of Ahura Mazda, the Good Lord, are arranged in a hierarchy of seven: Spenta Mainyu (the Holy Spirit), Vohu Manah (Good Mind), Asha (Truth), Armaiti (Right Mindedness), Khshathra Vairya (Kingdom), Haurvatat (Wholeness) and Ameretat (Immortality). In Judaism, the hierarchy of angelsoften called in the Old Testament the hosts of heaven or the company of divine beingsis not strictly defined. In postbiblical Judaismespecially in apocalyptic literature, which describes God's dramatic intervention in historyseven angels, sometimes called archangels, lead the heavenly hosts that in the Talmud (an authoritative compendium of Jewish law, lore and commentary) are viewed as countless. These seven, noted in the noncanonical First Book of Enoch (chapter 20), are: Uriel (leader of the heavenly hosts and guardian of sheol, the underworld); Raphael (guardian of human spirits); Raguel (avenger of God against the world of lights); Michael (guardian of Israel); Sariel (avenger of the spirits, who sin in the spirit); Gabriel (ruler of paradise, the seraphim and the cherubim) and Remiel,; also called Jeremiel (guardian of the souls in sheol). Of these, two (Michael and Gabriel) are mentioned in the Old Testament and two others (Raphael and Uriel) in the Apocrypha, a collection of noncanonical works. In rabbinic literature, angels are classified into two basic groupings: higher and lower. Included among the higher group are the cherubim and seraphim, winged guardians of God's throne or chariot and the ofannim (Hebrew: wheels), all of which are noted in the Old Testament. Among the sectarians associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls, the higher angels include the angels of light, darkness, destruction and holiness. Christianity developed a hierarchy of angels based on the Judaic tradition. In addition to angels, archangels, seraphim and cherubim, five other spiritual angelic groupsnamed in the letters of Paul in the New Testamentwere accepted in the church by the 4th century: virtues, powers, principalities, dominions and thrones. Together they made up a hierarchy or choir of angels. As objects of devotion, special attention has been given to the archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. Inheriting concepts of angelology from Judaism and Christianity, Islam also developed a hierarchy of angels. In a descending order of importance are: the four throne bearers of Allah (hamalat al-'arsh), symbolized by a man, a bull, an eagle and a lion in Islamic legend (which drew from the imagery of the Revelation to John in the New Testament); the cherubim (karubiyun), who praise Allah; four archangels (Jibril or Gabriel, the revealer; Mikal or Michael, the provider; 'Izra'il, the angel of death and Israfil, the angel of the Last Judgment) and lesser angels, such as the hafazah or guardian angels. Hierarchies of celestial or spiritual beings also were developed among various religions that arose out of the major Western religions, such as the Druzes and among syncretistic religions, such as Gnosticism, which combined elements of Jewish, Greek and Christian traditions and Manichaeism, a dualistic religion that was founded by the 3rd-century-AD Persian reformer Mani. Such religions usually incorporated into their hierarchical concepts aspects of emanation theories, such as aeons or Archons or of astrology, such as the signs of the zodiac.

+2 rate 4. Primarily in Western religions, any of numerous benevolent spiritual beings who mediate between heaven and earth. They often serve as messengers or servants of God or as guardians of an individual or nation. In Zoroastrianism the amesha spenta are arranged in a hierarchy of seven. Judaism and Christianity base their notion of angels on references in the Hebrew scriptures to divine servants and to the heavenly hosts. Two archangels (Michael and Gabriel) are mentioned in the Old Testament and two others (Raphael and Uriel) in the Apocrypha. Angels are mentioned throughout the Christian scriptures and Christian tradition identifies nine orders of angels. Islam's hierarchy of angels descends from the four throne bearers of God to the cherubim who praise God, the four archangels and lesser angels such as the &#1E25;afa&#1E93;ah (guardian angels).
