  • Asaph - the Angel who is said to have made a direct contribution to the Bible by authoring twelve of the Psalms of the Old Testament. The Psalms were number 50 and from 73 to 83. His skill in composing hymns to the Lord apparently earned him the honorific post by God; his authority, however, extends only over the night, the songs of the choir under the command of the Angel Jeduthun.

 

  • Asbogha (a.k.a. Azbuga YHWH)
  • Ascension, Angels Of - the two Angels mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles as appearing to the apostles at the moment of Christ's Ascension into heaven.
  • Asmodal (a.k.a. Angel of April)
  • Asuras (a.k.a. Ahura)
  • At-Taum - an Angel whose name means"the twin" who is credited in the lore of the Manichaeans with giving the religious leader Mani the revelations that were to form the foundation for his subsequent teachings.
  • Aupiel - (a.k.a. Anafiel, Anaphiel, Anpiel, Aupiel)
  • Ausiel (a.k.a. Angel of Aquarius)
  • Auza - one of the so-called sons of God, also called Oza, who fell from heaven and journeyed to Earth to engage in carnal union with mortal women. This event, touched upon the Book of Genesis, resulted in the birth of the anakim, also known as the nephilim.
  • Avatar - ten Angel-like beings who appear in Hindu lore and are the human or animal incarnation of a diety, taking such a form in order to combat evil or perform some significant act of goodness. The most famous of the avatars is Krishna (Krsna), the divine cowherd. Kalki (or Kalkin) is an avatar still to come, supposedly riding a white horse with wings to destroy the world at the end of the four ages. The other avatars are Buddha, Matsga, Narasimha, Varaha, Kurma, Parasurana, Vamana, and Rama. Krishna, in some regions, is actually considered a god, his brother Balarama serving as an avatar. The avatar demonstrate the worldwide prevalence of Angelic beings intervening in the affairs of humanity.
  • Azazel - one of the Fallen Angels, also known as Iblis.
  • Azaziel - a seraph who figured in Lord Byron's poem "Heaven and Earth." Azaziel fell in love with Anah, granddaughter of Cain. To save her from the coming of the Great Flood, which covered the Earth, the Angel snatched her up and, tucking her beneath her wings, carried her to safety on another planet.
  • Azbuga YHWH (a.k.a. Asbogha) - a prominent Angel in Hebrew lore, ranked as one of the eight princes of the throne of judgment. He is even more powerful than the dread Angel Metatron. According to some Jewish legends, Azbuga has the task of welcoming the truly worthy into heaven (some being considerably more worthy than others) and covering them with righteousness.
  • Azrael - the much feared Angel of death in both Islamic and Hebrew lore, whose name means "whom God helps." Among the Muslims, Azrael possesses four thousand wings and seventy thousand feet. Most important, he was given a supply of eyes and tongues exactly equal to the number of people inhabiting the world. Each time Azrael blinks one of his eyes, it signifies that another person has died. He came to the task by virtue of a surprisingly difficult job given to the Angel of God. the Lord commanded that Michael, Gabriel, and Israfel journey to the Earth and return with seven handfuls of dirt with which God planned to create Adam. The Earth, however, refused to give up its treasure, moaning that mankind should not be created because they would turn against God and bring only sadness. As the three Aangels returned empty-handed, the Lord chose a fourth, Azrael. Far more determined, Azrael wrenched from the Earth the dirt and brought it before the heavenly throne. As a reward, God made Azrael the Angel responsible for separating the human soul from the body at the moment of death. Aside from his blinking eyes, Azrael also keeps track of the dying by scribbling ceaselessly into a mighty book. He writes into the book the births of the living and just as often erases the names of those who have died. Azrael is actually to be identified with Raphael, the Archangel most closely associated with the life of humanity.
  • Azza - a Fallen Angel who is condemned to suffer a unique punishment for his sins. Accordining to Jewish lore, Azza was bitterly opposed to God's plan to reward the patriarch Enoch with elevation to Angelic status. (Enoch was transformed into the Angel Prince Metatron). Expelled from heaven, Azza was hung upside down between Earth and paradise. Ever plunging but never actually crashing, he is forced uncontrollably to open one eye so that the full horror of his predicament is driven home. Prior to his fall, Azza was listed as a ministering Angel, (in the third book of Enoch), and is said to have been responsible for teaching the famed King Solomon many secrets of heaven.
