ANGEL OF LIGHT(S)


January 19, 2013
 
I looked up a name today for a friend in a book I've had a long time:  Gustav Davidson, “A Dictionary of Angels--including the fallen angels” (New York: The Free Press, 1967). When taking the opportunity to glance at other pages, I saw "Angel of Light" and "Angel of Lights" in the listings.  Many uneducated and uninformed people who call themselves Christian have criticized my name, most especially in the early years, so I decided to share the full entries here.

Angel of Light:  Isaac, Gabriel, Jesus, and Satan have been called angels of light, Satan only in his disguise as such (II Corinthians 11:14). In Jewish tradition, Isaac was looked upon as an angel of light because of the supernatural brightness of his countenance at birth (a birth announced by [Archangel] Michael). In Christian lore of the Middle Ages, Gabriel was the angel of light. [Reference: Christian, “The History and Practice of Magic I, 296.]  In Parsi religion, it was Mihr (Meher, Mithra); also Parvargigar (who, in Arabic, was Rab-un-naw, “lord of the species”).  According to “Midrash Komen,” 300 angels of light dwell in the 3rd Heaven where they “unceasingly sing God’s praises and watch over the Garden of Eden and the Tree of Life.”  It should be explained that there are two paradises: the terrestrial one and the heavenly one.  In the cabala, the sun, included among the planets, is regarded as an angel of light.

Angel of Lights:  In “The Zadokite Fragments” the following appears:  “Moses and Aaron continued in their charge through the help of the Angel of Lights even though Beliel in his cunning had set up Jannes and his brother in opposition of them.”  [Reference: Rowley, “The Zadokite Fragments and the Dead Sea Scrolls”; Grand, “Gnosticism and Early Christianity.”]  Raphael, as regent of the sun; Uriel, also called regent of the sun; and Shamshiel, “light of day,” may similarly be designated angels of light.
