Gaap (Tap) - Once of the order of potentates (powers), now a fallen angel, Gaap serves, in Hell, as a "great president and mighty prince." He is called the "lord of disease", and is known to have power over all physical afflictions. As king of the South, he rules 66 legions of infernal spirits.

Gabamiah - In Solomonic Goetic rites, a great angel invoked by the use of the incantatory power of the name of the angel Uriel. He serves under both Uriel and Azrael (one could assume as an angel of death or change).

Gabriel - ["The Strong God", "God is my strength"]. Gabriel is a well known angel. A detailed page dedicated to him can be found here.

Gabuthelon - ["The Strong shall inherit"]. An angel whose name was revealed to Esdras as among the 9 who would govern "at the end of the world." Apart from Gabuthelon, the others are: Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, Aker (Ariel?), Raphael, Arphugitonos, Beburos, & Zebuleon.

Gadiel (Gadreel, Gardriel, Gadriel) - A "most holy angel" invoked in Goetic operations, as directed in Mathers, The Greater Key of Solomon. Gadiel is a resident of the 5th Heaven. In the Ozar Midrashim II, 316, Gadiel is one of numerous angelic guards of the gates of the South Wind. The fact that Gadiel's name is found inscribed on an oriental charm (kamea) suggests that he must have been regarded as a power against evil. Often equated with Gadreel, Gadriel & Gardriel: the rebirthed angel.

Gadreel - ["Lord who assists" (Aramaic)]. One of the fallen angels in Enoch lore. It was Gadreel who, being a minister to the devil, led Eve to temptation in the guise of the serpent. Gadreel took the form of a serpent during the Great War, where he fought with the angels of darkness under Lucifer as his "highest ministering angel." Like Azazel, Gadreel made men familiar with weapons of war and taught them all manner of killing before the flood had him bound with the other Watchers. The IV Book of Maccabees refers to the seduction of Eve, but speaks of her as protesting that "no false beguiling serpent" sullied "the purity of my maidenhood." Gadreel is not mentioned by name in this source, but is believed to be the serpent which Eve is speaking of.

Gadriel - Cheif ruling angel of the 5th Heaven in charge of wars among the nations. When a prayer ascends to Heaven, Gadriel crowns it, then accompanies it into the 6th Heaven, according to the Zohar. Sandalphon, with whom Gadriel is associated, is another great angel who crowns prayers for transmission - not, however, from heaven to heaven, but direct from man to God.

Ga'ga - In the Ma'asseh Merkabah, an angelic guard stationed in the 7th Heavenly Hall in Araboth.

Galgallim (Galgalim) - ["spheres"]. A superior order of angels of a rank equal to the seraphim. The galgallim are called "the wheels of the Merkabah" (i.e. "chariots of God") and are equated with the Ophanim. There are 8 ruling angels in the order, with Galgaliel as ruling prince and Rikbiel as chief (second in command). The Galgallim share with the other Merkabah angels in the performance of The Celestial Song.

"He spreads his wings over the hayyoth lest their fiery breath consume the ministering angels." (The Hayyoth are the holy beasts who "uphold the universe.")

Also associated with Abraxas, Mikhar, and Samlo. However, Levi in his Philosophie Occulte rates Gamaliel as evil, "an adversary of the cherubim" serving under Lilith (who is the demon debauchery). In Revelation of Adam to His Son Seth (a Coptic apocalypse), Gamaliel is one of the high, holy, celestial powers whose mission is "to draw the elect up to Heaven."

Hyde mentions Gazardiel in Historia Religionis Veterum Persarum. In De Plancy, Dictionnaire Infernal, Gazardiel is a Talmudic angel charged with the rising and setting sun. Regamey in "What Is An Angel?", speaking of "later Judaism teaching the names of the angels of the elements, "refers to Casardia (i.e., Garzardiel) as having to "see to it that the sun rose every day at the right time and set at the right time."

Gazarniel - An angel of "flame of fire" who sought to oppose and wound Moses at the time the Lawgiver visited Heaven. Moses routed Gazarniel, we are told, "by pronouncing the Holy Name consisting of 12 letters." (Note: the only reference so far to mention Gazarniel is in Raskin, Kabbalah, Book of Creation, Zohar.

Genius - Plural is Genii, used also for Djinn. Genius is another name for ruling spirit, angel or intelligence. [Cf. Blake: "the forms of all things are derived from their Genius, which by the Ancients was call'd an Angel & Spirit & Demon."] According to Paul Christian in The History and Practice of Magic I, 303, says: "the genii of the orient [were] the originals of Christian angels." Athanasius Kircher, 17th-century Jesuit, in his voyage to the planets, accompanied by the genius Cosmiel, finds the genii (whom he dubs "sinister") inhabiting the planet Saturn. According to Kircher, the genii "administer divine justice to the wicked, and suffering to the righteous." While the term "genii" is often used to describe angels, it is most commonly known as another name for Djinn, another type of spirit altogether.

According to The Zohar I, 25a-b, the Gibborim "erect synagogues and colleges, and place in them scrolls of the law with rich ornaments, but only to make themselves a name." If that is so, then the Gibborim must be regarded as evil, and they usually are so regarded. However, although the Genesis Gibborim refer to the Nephillim, it is most likely that the Gibborim themselves were confused with the Grigori (The father-angels of such Nephillim), who were said to have erected palaces and schools etc. in their first attempts to "teach to man" the secrets of Heaven. They were considered evil when they divulged these sacred secrets, made themselves worshiped as Gods ("to make themselves a name"), and interbred with human women. See also: Grigori

God of this Age (God of this World) - see II Corinthians 4, "in whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not," etc. Here, Paul has in mind Satan, chief of the fallen angels, however, both Ariel & Michael have been called "God of the World".

Gog and Magog - In the Grimoires of Honoronius III, ineffable names of God used to command spirits. Typically, they were ancient demons or Djinn, who existed in the time before the flood. "The unexpected appearance of Gog and Magog amongst the other Holy names of God must be put down," says Butler, Ritual Magic, "to the ignorance of Honorius." The Koran mentions Gog and Magog as "spoiling the land."

Grial (Griel) - A guardian angel of the 5th Heaven; also one the 70 childbed amulet angels.

Griel - [Grial]

Grigorim (Grigori, egoroi, egregori, "watchers") - ["Those who watch", "Those who are awake", "Those who never sleep"]. In Jewish legendary lore, the Grigori are a superior order of angels whose primary purpose is fulfilled in the silent observance of the world. They are called "eternally silent" & "sleepless". [Explained in more detail under Watchers]. They are "taller than giants" but otherwise resemble men in appearance. During the time of Enoch, an order of 200 Grigori broke from Heaven by cohabiting with man in an attempt to reveal to man the forbidden secrets of Heaven. They took wives among them and many of their offspring, called the Nephillim, were brutal giants. Both the Nephillim & the superior knowledge introduced lead to man's downfall, and the great flood was the result. Out of the Grigori, only 200 watchers "rejected the lord" in this way. It is unknown how many of the Grigori remained loyal. In judgement, the unholy watchers were bound in the 5th Heaven, while the holy watchers remain in the 2nd Heaven. The ruling prince of the order of Grigori (not just those unholy) is called Salamiel. He is considered in Enoch II to be unholy, although this may be confusing him with Semyaza, who was the chief of the 200 Grigori who fell. (See Watchers).

Guardian Angel of the Earth - Ariel, Michael, or Danyael. Ariel over life (nature), Michael over will (souls) & Danyael over formation (matter). According to Irenaeus, Athenagoras, Methodius of Philippi, and other early Church fathers, Satan was the original guardian of the Earth.

Guardian Angel of France - [Hakamiah].

Guardian Angel of Heaven and Earth - In the Islamic scheme of 7 Heavens, the Guardian angel of Heaven & Earth dwells in the 6th Heaven. He is sometimes identified with Nuriel or Lucifer as he is described as being composed of snow & fire.

Guardian Angels - A class of angels who minister or protect, guide or accompany. Although the guardians of man are known to be lead by Gabriel (the angel of humanity), Angels as guardians can be found for a variety of charges under the 4 ruling princes of the order: Uriel, Raphael, Gabriel & Michael. They are also Principalities, with 70 known guardian angels of nations, one in charge of each state. These tutelary princes over nations are "either angels of demons," a notion which was often abused when states named demons in control of opposing nations to regard them as "evil". In Rabbinic tradition, these 70 began as angels, but became corrupted national bias & are now demons - with the sole exception of Michael, sar of Israel, whose bias was excusable or justified, since he espoused the cause of the "chosen people." Of these 70, only those of 4 nations are named in Rabbinical works: Dobiel for Persia; Samael for Rome (Edom); Rahab, Uzza, Duma and/or Semyaza for Egypt; and Michael/Ariel for Israel. It is said that every human being (and every rock, tree & animal for that matter) is assigned one or more guardian angels, often at birth. The Talmud speaks of every Jew being attended through life by 11,000 guardian angels; & also that "every blade of grass has over it, an angel saying 'grow.'" That every child has a protective spirit is confirmed by Matthew 18:10 where Jesus bids his disciples not to despise the little ones and speaks of their "angels in Heaven." According to Charles, Apocrypha & Psuedepigrapha of the Old Testament, the earliest reference to the belief in guardian angels, in noncanonical lore, is to be found in The Book of Jubilees, 35:17. Another early source might be cited: The Biblical Antiquities of Philo, the writing of which is said to date back to the 1st century C.E. In Athanasius Kircher's account of his voyages to the planets, "the guardian angels of all the virtues" are found inhabiting "the Elysian shores of the Planet Jupiter." The liturgical feast of the Holy Guardian Angels, in Catholic observances, occurs on October 2.

Guards - An order of the celestial hierarchy mentioned in Paradise Lost IV, 550; XII, 590, where the guards, earlier referred to as Powers and equated likewise with the Cherubim, are under command of Michael. These are likely the same guards in the Heavenly halls at Araboth, who are governed by Michael. Alfred de Vigny mentions the order of guards in his poem "Eloa."
