He is included occasionally among the eight great judgment princes of the throne whose rank is superior to Metatron’s. He is the angel of poetry, master of the muses. It was said of him, ”out of every word that goeth forth from his mouth a song-uttering angel is born.” Note: since God alone is credited with the creation of angels, this power and privilege to do likewise makes him unique among his fellow hierarchs—except for Pistis Sophia, who is claimed to be, in 3 Enoch, the ”procreator of the superior angels.” Another exception is Dynamis.

Raguel (Raguil, Ragiel, Rasuil, Rufael, Suryan, Akrasiel) - ”("friend of God").” One of the seven archangels listed in the Enochian writings. He is an angel of earth, a guard of the 2nd (or 4th) Heaven. He ”takes vengeance on the world of luminaries” which is interpreted to mean that, for cause, he brings other angels to account. Great as he is, he was reprobated at a church council in Rome in 745 C.E., along with other high-ranking angels, Uriel among them. According to Hugo, Raguhel (so spelt) is a demon who ”passed himself off as a saint” whom Pope Zachary in 745 C.E. ”unearthed and turned out of the saintly calendar, along with two other demons called Oribel and Tobiel.” [See Tubuas] As cited in The Revelation of John an extract from the termination of MS. E: ”Then shall He send the angel Raguel, saying: Go and sound the trumpet for the angels of cold and snow and ice, and bring together every kind of wrath upon them that stand on the left.” This would occur after the separation of the sheep from the goats. In Gnosticism, he is equated with Thelesis, another rgreat angel. According to Enoch II, Raguel (as Raguil or Rasuil or Samuil) is the angel who transported Enoch to Heaven while Enoch was still living—an incident alluded to in Genesis 5:24. This feat is also credited to Anafiel.

Ramiel is chief of thunder (as is Uriel); has charge of the souls that come up for judgment on the last day (as has Zehanpuryu).
