Archangel Michael is probably the most famous of all the archangels. He’s been sainted, churches are named for him, and he features prominently in the Bible and other sacred texts. Ancient and modern artwork portray Michael as a muscular, athletic archangel with intensely powerful facial expressions and body language. Usually he’s painted with his sword poised above a pinned-down demon. This is to signify Michael’s primary purpose of slaying the ego and fear. Sacred texts and countless men are named after him.
