Uriel ”fire of God” One of the leading angels in noncanonical lore, and ranked variously as a seraph, a cherub, regent of the sun, flame of God, angel of the presence, presider over Tartarus (Hades), archangel of salvation, and so forth. In II Esdras he acts as a heavenly interpreter of Ezra’s visions. In Enoch I, he is the angel who ”watches over thunder and terror.” In The Book of Adam and Eve he presides over repentance. He ”is supposed to be the spirit who stood at the gate of the lost Eden with the fiery sword.” states Abbot Anscar Vonier in The Teaching of the Catholic Church. The Book of Adam and Eve designates him as this spirit, i.e., one of the ”cherubims” of Genesis 3. He is invoked in some of the ancient litanies. He has been identified as one of the angels who helped bury Adam and Abel in Paradise; as the dark angel who wrestled with Jacob at Peniel; as the destroyer of the hosts of Sennacherib; as the messenger sent by God to Noah to warn him of the impending deluge, all of which have also been credited to another angel at one time or another. He is said to have disclosed the mysteries of the heavenly arcana to Ezra; interpreted prophecies and led Abraham out of Ur. R. H. Charles comments on The Book Of Enoch states that in later Judaism ”we find Uriel instead of Phanuel” as one of the four angels of the presence. Uriel is also the angel of September and may be invoked by those born then. The Magus claims that alchemy ”which is of divine origin” was brought down to earth by hi, and that Uriel gave the cabal to man (Metatron is also credited with this gift). It is claimed that the name Uriel is derived from the prophet Uriah. In apocryphal and occult works he has been equated with Nuriel, Uryan, Jeremiel, Vretil, Suriel, Puruel, Phanuel, Jehoel, Israfel, and the angel Jacob-Israel. In the Prayer of Joseph quoted in part in The Legends of the Jews, Jacob says: ”When I was coming from Mesopotamia of Syria, Uriel, the angel of od, came forth and spoke: ‘I have come down to earth to make my dwelling among men, and I am called Jacob by name.’” The meaning of the foregoing is bewildering, unless Uriel turned into Jacob after wrestling with him at Peniel; but the incident as related in Genesis 32 suggests a different interpretation. A commentary on Exodus 4:25 speaks of a ”benign angel” attaching Moses for neglecting to observe the covenantal rite of circumcision with regard to his son Gershom. This benign angel is identified as Uriel in Midrash Aggada Exodus, and as Gabriel in The Zohar where is states that Gabriel ”came down in a flame of fire, having the appearance of a burning serpent,” with the express purpose of destroying Moses ”because of his sin.” In The Legends of the Jews the angel here is neither Uriel nor Gabriel, but two angels, the wicked Hemah and Af. Despite his eminence, Uriel was reprobated at a Church Council in Rome, 745 C.E. Now, however he is Saint Uriel, and his symbol is an open hand holding a flame.
