Umabel - in the cabala, Umabel is said to have dominion over physics and astronomy. He is also one of the 72 angels bearing the name of God Shemhamphorae.

Umahel - one of the archangels. Ambelain, La Kabbale Pritique, does not say what the mission of this archangel is. Umahel is listed as one of 9 of the order in a chart facing p. 88 of the Ambelain book.

Umeroz - angel of the 2nd hour of the night, serving under Farris.

Umiel - an angel invoked in Syriac spellbinding charms.

Umikol - in Jewish mysticism, one of the angels of the Seal.

Unael - an angel serving in the 1st heaven. The name Unael (Unhael) is found inscribed on an oriental charm (kamea) for warding off evil.

Ur (Uhr, Uwr) - Hebrew, Aur, meaning “fire” or “light.” In Mandaean lore, the king of the nether world.

Urah (Oora, Oorah, Ur, Uwr, Uhr) - The name of a Djinn (elemental spirit) or Af (elemental angel) who has authority over combinations of elements. The spirit was summoned for assistance in raw alchemy but it is actually more of a principality (governing spirit) than a ministering guide. Urah is associated with locations where nature's elements cooperate. In ancient times locations such as this meant profitable resources and they became cities. The name is Aramaic and literally means "to join" or "to combine." It was commonly used as the word for "city" and was adopted into Hebrew as a word for city. [Example: Jerusalem = "Adonai 'Urah" - "city of the Lord."] It is important to point out that the title 'Urah' is actually in plural form [singular form = Ur]. It was adopted into Hebrew this way most likely because the plural form had become common usage. It is possible that 'Urah' was a title given to a specific order (possibly governed by this single entity). It could have been the title for the Djinn, the Af or the Principalities themselves. Or perhaps even for "Urah's" lessers. Urah as an individual would be identified with all major cities (at least those with harmonious climates). He would also be associated with the Gnostic Ur who is a borrowed personification of the ancient city of Ur.

Urakabarameel - a run-together of Arakib and Ramiel. Urakabarameel was one of the leaders of the fallen angels. He is mentioned in Thomas Moore’s book-length poem The Loves of the Angels.

Urfiel - chief of the angelic order of malachim or malakim.

Urian (Uryan) - a form of Uriel, as in Enoch I 9:1. in low German folklore, Sir Urian is a sobriquet for Satan.


Uriel - (“God of the Burning Light", "burning light of God”) one of the leading angels in noncanonical lore... ranked variously as a seraph, cherub, regent of the sun, flame of God, angel of the presence, presider over Tartarus (Hades), archangel of salvation, (as in II Edras) etc. In the latter work he acts as 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. Uriel “is supposed to be,” says Abbot Anscar Vonier in the Teaching of the Catholic Church, “the spirit who stood at the gate of the lost Eden with the fiery sword.” The Book of Adam and Eve designates him as this spirit, i.e., one of the “cherubim” 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 feats or missions have been credited to other angels, as elsewhere noted. In the view of Louis Ginzberg, the “prince of lights” in the Manual of Discipline refers to Uriel. In addition, Uriel is said to have disclosed the mysteries of the heavenly arcane to Ezra; interpreted prophecies, and led Abraham out of Ur. In later Judaism, says R.H. Charles, “we find Uriel instead of Phanuel” as one of the 4 angels of the presence.
Uriel is also the angel of the month of September and may be invoked ritually by those born in that month. The Magus claims that alchemy “which is of divine origin” was brought down to earth by Uriel, and that it was Uriel who gave the cabala to man, although this “key to the mystical interpretation of Scripture” is also said to have been the gift of Metatron. Milton describes Uriel as “regent of the Sun” and the “sharpest sighted spirit of all of Heaven.” Dryden, The State of Innocence, pictures Uriel as descending from heaven in a chariot drawn by white horses. 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. Burne-Jones’ painting of Uriel is reproduced as a frontispiece in Duff, First and Second Books of Esdras. The name Uriel derives, it is claimed, from Uriah the prophet. In apocryphal and occult works Uriel has been equated or identified with: Nuriel, Uryan, Jeremiel, Vretil, Suriel, Puruel, Phanuel, Jehoel, Israfel, and the angel Jacob-Israel. See the pseudepigraphic Prayer of Joseph, quoted in part in Ginzberg, The Legends of the Jews. In this work Jacob says: “When I was coming from Mesopotamia of Syria, Uriel, the angel of God, came forth and spoke: ‘I have come down to the earth to make my dwelling among men, and I am called Jacob by Name.’” The meaning of the foregoing is puzzling, unless Uriel turned into Jacob after wrestling with the patriarch at Peniel; by the incident as related in Genesis 32 Suggests a different interpretation. A commentary on Exodus 4:25 speaks of a “benign angel” attacking Moses for neglecting to observe the covenantal rite of circumcision with regard to the latter’s son Gershom, the benign angel being identified as Uriel in Midrash Aggada Exodus, and as Gabriel in the Zohar. The latter source reports 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 II, 328, the angel here is neither Uriel nor Gabriel but 2 angels, the wicked Hemah and Af. Uriel is said to be the angel of vengeance that Prud’hon pictured in his “Divine Vengeance and Justice,” a canvas to be found in the Louvre. Uriel, “gliding through the Ev’n/On a sun beam” is reproduced on p 296 from Hayley, The Poetical Works of John Milton. The Uriel in Percy MacKaye’s Uriel and Other Poems is not our angel but William Vaughn Moody, American poet and laywright, to whom the title poem is addressed in memory. The most recent appraisal of Uriel is the one offered by Walter Clyde Curry in Milton’s Ontology Cosmology and Physics, where on page 93, Professor Curry says of Uriel that he “seems to be largely a pious but not too perceptive physicist with inclinations towards atomistic philosophy.” To illustrate in what high esteem Uriel was held, we find him described in the 2nd book of the Sibylline Oracles as one of the
“immortal angels of the undying God” who, on the day of judgment,
will “break the monstrous bars framed of unyielding and unbroken adamant of the brazen gates of Hades, and cast them down straightway, and bring forth to judgment all the sorrowful forms, yea,
of the ghosts of the ancient Titans and of the giants, and all whom the flood overtook… and all these shall he bring to the judgment seat… and set before God’s seat.

Urim - (“illumination”). a cherub in Klopstock’s poetic drama Der Messias (the Messiah). The Bible meaning of the term is a “household idol” and it is almost always used in association with tummin (or thummim), meaning “perfection” and signifying oracles for ascertaining the will of God. The urim and tummin derive from the Babylonian-Chaldean tablets of destiny (“owned” by Tiamat, female monster and reputed source of all evil), which were credited with possessing the virtue of casting the fate of men. Aaron, it will be recalled, bore the urim and tummin engraved on his breastplate as the insignia of his office of high priest (see Aster Criel). In Talmud Yoma, the urim and tummin are listed among the 5holy things found in the First Temple and absent from the Second Temple. The Zohar thus defines and distinguishes the 2 terms: “Urim signifies the luminous speculum, which consisted of the engravure of the Divine Name composed of 42 letters by which the world was created;
whereas the Thummin consisted of the nonluminous speculum made of the Divine Name as manifested in the 22 letters. The combination of the 2 is thus called Urim and Thummin.” Milton, Paradise Regained III, 14, refers to the urim and thummin as “those oraculous gems/On Aaron’s beast.” The seal of Yale University incorporates the 2 names in Hebrew characters.

Urion - (Orion)

Uriron - an angel invoked as an amulet against sorcery and sudden death.

Urizen - in Blake’s Book of Urizen, the angel of England, alternating with Orc. He is one of the Four Zoas and the embodiment of the god of reason. Urizen’s son is the angel that Blake meets in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.

Urpaniel - an angel’s name found inscribed on an oriental charm (kamea) for warding off evil.

Urzla - in the cabala, an angel of the east, summoned in conjuring rites; he is a “glorious and benevolent angel and is asked to share with the invocant the secret wisdom of the Creator.”

Usera - an angel serving in the 1st heaven.

Usiel (Uziel, Uzziel) - (“strength of God”). in the cabala generally, as in Targum Onkeles and Jonathan, Usiel is an angel that fell, and is therefore evil; he was among those who wedded human wives and begat giants. Of the 10 unholy sefiroth, Usiel is listed 5th. In the Book of the Angel Raziel, Usiel (Uzziel) is among the 7 angels before the throne of God and among 9 set over the 4 winds. Usiel replaces Uriel in the reprint English translation of Verus Jesuitarum Libellus (“True Magical Work of the Jesuits”). The Key to Faust’s Threefold Harrowing of Hell (otherwise known as a Key to Black Raven) contains a general conjuration to Usiel and a list of his adjutant princes. Finally, according to Milton, Usiel is a good angel, of the order of virtues, a lieutenant of Gabriel’s in the fighting in Heaven at the time of Satan’s defection.

Uslael - an angel serving in the 4th heaven

His office is to procure the love of women at the behest of invocants. He speaks Egyptian “but not perfectly,” according to Waite, The Lemegeton. Nowadays, it appears, Uvall converses in colloquial Coptic. His sigil is figured in Waite, The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts.

According to The Book of the Angel Raziel, Uzziel (Usiel) is among the 7 angels who stand before the throne of Glory, and among the 9 set over the 4 winds. In Milton, Paradise Lost IV, Uzziel is commanded by Gabriel to “coast the south with strictest watch.” In Merkabah lore, he is an angel of mercy under the rulership of Metatron.
