Abaddon The ”destroyer”. The Hebrew name for the Greek Apollyon, ”angel of the bottomless pit,” and the angel (or star) that binds Satan for 1,000 years. The Thanksgiving Hymns (a copy was also found in the Dead Sea Scrolls) tells of ”the Sheol of Abaddon” and of the ”torrents of Belial [that] burst into Abaddon.” The 1st-century apocryphon. The Biblical Antiquities of Philo mentions Abaddon as a place (sheol, hell), not as a spirit or demon or angel. In Paradise Regained, Milton also uses Abaddon as a place—the pit. It appears to have been St. John who first personified the term to stand for an angel. In the 3rd-century Acts of Thomas, Abaddon is the name of a demon, or the devil himself. According to The Greater Key of Solomon, Abaddon is a name for God that Moses invoked to bring down the blighting rain over Egypt. The cabalist Gikatilla denotes Abaddon as the 6th lodge of the seven lodges of Hell (arka), under the presidency of the angel Pasiel. In The Messiah, Klopstock calls Abaddon ”death’s dark angel.” A reference to Abaddon’ ”hooked wings” is found in Francis Thompson’s poem ”To the English Martyrs.” {See Apollyon] Abaddon has also been identified as the angel of death and destruction, demon of the abyss, and chief of demons of the underworld hierarchy, where he is equated with Samael or Satan. In Magic and Alchemy, Abaddon is the ”Destroying Angel of the Apocalypse.” In Barrett’s The Magus, Abaddon is pictured, in color, as one of the ”evil demons.” As a Demon…Abaddon In medieval myth the synonym for Hell and/or the ruler thereof, and in Revelations 9:7-11 it is the Christian angel of Hell. The Hebrew word abaddon means "place of destruction" (Job 26:8 and Psalm 88:11). Prior to its corruption by the Judeo-Christian tradition, "Abaddon" referred to the pit or cave that was used in mystery religions and schools as a rite of passage into the greater mysteries. Often, the experience would entail the use of ritual substances that put the aspirant into an altered state in which he or she could receive divine revelation. Because the experience was sometimes unpleasant, this rite came to be viewed as being "hellish." However, it was considered absolutely necessary so that the seeker may become pure enough to encounter the "mind of God."

Abdals ”The Substitutes”. In Islamic lore, the name given to the seventy mysterious spirits whose identities only God knows, and by whose operations the world continues to exist. Apparently the Abdals are not immortal, for when one dies, another is secretly appointed to replace him. Of the seventy, two score reside in Syria. Also known as ”The Just” in Jewish folklore and as Lamas of India.

Abdia “Servant” The angel that appears on the external circle of the pentagram of Solomon. The Lemegeton lists Abdia in Figure 156. The listing does not mean necessarily that he is evil. Many good and great angels are listed thusly, just as there are many good and great angels in Hell, stationed there to serve a purpose—just as there are evil angels in some quarters of Heaven, such as the grigori.

Abdiel Servant of God” The earliest traceable reference to Abdiel as an angel is in a Jewish cabalistic work from the Middle Ages, written in rabbinic Hebrew, called The Book of the Angel Raziel (the authorship is credited to Eleazor of Worms). According to Paradise Lost, Abdiel is the ”flaming seraph” who overthrows Ariel, Arioc, and Ramiel (angels listed among the rebel host) on the first day of fighting in Heaven. Satan himself reels from Abdiel’ s ”mighty sword stroke.” In other literature, Milton hails him as ”faithful only hee; among innumerable false, unmov’e,/Unshak’n, unseduc’d”. It has been claimed, by West in Milton and the Angels, that Abdiel was an invention of Milton’s, but then Professor West points out that Abdiel is to found in The Book of the Angel Raziel. In the biblical account found in I Chronicles, Abdiel is not an angel but a mortal, a Gedite, resident of Gilead. In Anatole France’s fictional The Revolt of the Angels Abdiel is known as Arcade.

This may be from the Hebrew Ab (Father), ben (Son), and ruach acadsch (Holy Spirit). Another possibility is that is from the first few letters of the Phoenician alphabet (A-Bra-Ca-Dabra) or from the name of an old disease demon.

He is encountered in The Sword of Moses, The Book of the Angel Raziel, and other books of magick and mysticism. The older mythographers state that Abraxas is, or was, a demon, and placed with the Egyptian gods. He is the mirror image of Amon. The word ”abracadabra” is supposedly derived from Abraxas. Originally it was a word expressing, in gnostism, the aeons of creation; in a deeper sense it served as a term for God. It is said in Gnostic text that Abraxas was the archon-ruler of 365 Heavens, and acted as mediator between the animate creatures of the earth and the godhead.

In Talmud, the sedim are said to have ”begotten Azza and Azael on the body of the evil Naamah.” It is also noted that of the two groups of angels headed by Metatron, the angels of justice was under the rulership of Azza.
