Camael ArchAngel

Camael, also spelled Khamuel, Camiel, Cameel, and Camniel, is the Christian and Jewish mythological and angelological archangel of strength, courage, and war. Camael is most likely a variant spelling of either ammul “God’s wrath/anger,” from ammh “hot,” or Qmul “God is risen,” “raised by God,” or “one who sees/stands before God,” from qum “to arise,” “to stand up.” He is one of the ten Kabbalah angels allocated to the sephira Gevurah, according to poet Gustav Davidson’s classic work A Dictionary of Angels, Including the Fallen Angels (1967). Camael is also included as one of the Seven Archangels in Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite’s 5th or 6th century Corpus Areopagiticum, alongside Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Jophiel, and Zadkiel. He is said to be the flaming sword-wielding leader of the troops that ejected Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. However, he is frequently shown in iconography carrying a cup. Camael was omitted from the Holy See’s list of biblically named angels in the (2002). Thus, Catholics are prohibited from practising a veneration cult.
