-Kazuma Kaneko’s depictions of Uriel and traditional depictions
Uriel is one of the four Judeo-Christian archangels (however the one who is often left out since he is mostly mentioned in apocryphal books, gnostic writings and Kaballah) and an angel of repentance, angel of Sunday and connected to the Confirmation.
Aurelius Ambrosius included him in the ranks of archangels though and he is mostly added so that there are four archangels (four directions north, east, south, west).
Uriel/Auriel/Oriel ( אוּרִיאֵל) means “God is My Light” or “God is Light.” Some refer to Uriel as the “Light/Fire/Flame of God.” His symbol is an open hand holding a flame/fiery sword or a book (as patron of arts). He is often dressed in green and is associated with summer and the Earth.
Some believe Uriel guards the gate of Eden and that he stands at that gate with a fiery sword. The Book of Enoch states that Uriel “watches over thunder and terror.”
He was the angel that warned Noah of the Great Flood, and he is sometimes said to be the angel that wrestled with Jacob (most sources say that is was Phanuel though however they are sometimes equated).
In the book Esra he guides Esra through heaven and hell.
Uriel is also the angel usually credited with saving the life of John the Baptist during the Massacre of the Innocents and he guided John and his mother Elisabeth (Gabriel is said to be the angel who saved Jesus with warning Joseph to go to Egypt in contrast).
Uriel is believed to be the “Regent of the Sun” in the Book of the Revelation that calls forth the birds of the air to feast upon the fallen bodies and he will oversee the resurrection and retribution of human souls.
He also is said to be the overseer of Hell and is controlling the heavens. Paradise Lost also associates him with the sun.
