does a service by listing the seven Archangels under the command
of the Lord of Spirits, and by making a short comment
on the functions which each one performed in the Garden in Eden.
The Lord of Spirits, however, is not commented upon and
without the Sumerian record of Enlil, nothing would be known
of this vital personality. Enoch states:
XX: 1-4PP] These are the names of the Archangels who oversee
[the other Angels]:
who is in charge of the country about, and of Tartarus.
who is responsible for the health of men.
who judges [perhaps monitors] the good behaviour of
XX:5 PP] MICHAEL who is over each of the other Archangels,
and is appointed to command the brave soldiers and, consequently,
[is responsible for] the penal, volcanic areas.
XX;6-8 PP] SARIEL who is responsible for the fate
of those angels who transgress [the laws].
- who is in charge of Paradise and is over the Serpents and
whom the Lord made responsible for spreading abroad
the instructions of the seven Archangels the Council.
was a synonym for the Garden in Eden. In the Koran, and
in the most leading religions, the term referred to an area
in the Spiritual Regions in which Souls could enjoy a sojourn
of peace and pleasure, before being returned to the round of
transmigration. Gabri-el was in charge of the Garden
of Eden; but this post was not in conflict with that of the
Lord of Spirits; Uriel was in charge of the country round about
the Garden, and of the Lowlands and the Lord of Spirits
was over them both.
