Question 112

One of our group members yesterday wanted to know how many and what were the names of the Greek orthodox archangels. She may not be on line today so thought I would ask for her??     

 

Answer to Question 112

 

Tradition says that there are seven Archangels, Scripture has revealed the names of four of these archangels as Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael and from the Hebrew masoretic text Uriel. Certain traditions and sources also give the names of the other three but they are not in agreement with each other.
