In Christianity

Guido Reni's archangel Michael (in the Capuchin church of Santa Maria della Concezione, Rome, 1636) tramples Satan.
The New Testament speaks frequently of angels (for example, angels giving messages to Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds; angels ministering to Christ after his temptation in the wilderness, an angel visiting Christ in his agony, angels at the tomb of the risen Christ, the angels who liberate the Apostles Peter and Paul from prison); however, it makes only two references to "archangels." They are: Michael in Jude 1:9 and I Thessalonians 4:16, where the "voice of an archangel" will be heard at the return of Christ.

Catholic

In Catholicism,, three are honoured by name
St. Gregory the Great gave the names of the other four:
Although this was overturned by St. Zachary [8] a few years later as a Bishop, Adalbert [9][10] used the Kabbalah to pray to Uriel for his own purposes. In the trial they said the "Uriel" he was praying to was a demon (Accursed Uriel) and not "Blessed Uriel".[11]

Orthodox

.Eastern Orthodox Tradition mentions "thousands of archangels;[12] however, only seven archangels are venerated by name.^ In Revelation 12:7, he is named as the archangel who cast Satan out of heaven.

Cardinal or Great Archangels

These angels are listed as "cardinal" since they are used to rule over a cardinal point (see Uriel), such as north, south, east, or west. This is similar to the Four Gods theory, in which Byakko, Suzaku, Genbu, and Seiryuu represent the major directions in Eastern philosophy. .As such, these are the four greatest named archangels.^ Various churches espouse a number of archangels and I have read about these things and I have noted the sources of these ideas, such as the Apocrypha.

^ In both these cases the Archangel is mentioned by name, but it has also been suggested that Gabriel is the angel who wrestles with Jacob in the form of a man and that he was involved in the destruction of Sodom and Gommorah.
