Higher ranks may be asserted to have greater power or authority over lower ranks, or faces. Hierachy of Angels in the Abrahamic faiths. The Jewish angelic hierarchy is established in the Hebrew Bible, Talmud, Rabbinic literature, and traditional Jewish liturgy. They are categorized in different hierarchies proposed by various theologians. For example, Maimonides, counts ten Ranks of Angels. The most influential Christian angelic hierarchy was that put forward by Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, in the 4th or 5th century in his book De Coelesti Hierarchia (On the Celestial Hierarchy) Dionysius is the book which mentioned the Cumaean Sibyl “Disappearing from among men” During the Middle Ages, many schemes were proposed, some drawing on and expanding on Pseudo-Dionysius, others suggesting completely different classifications. According to medieval Christian theologians, the angels are organized into several orders, or “Angelic Choirs” Pseudo-Dionysius (On the Celestial Hierarchy) and Thomas Aquinas (Summa Theologica) drew on passages from the New Testament, specifically Ephesians 1-21 and Colossians 1-16, to develop a schema of three Hierarchies, Spheres or Triads of angels, with each Hierarchy containing three Orders or Choirs.There is no standard hierarchical organization in Islam that parallels the Christian division into different “choirs” or spheres, and the topic is not directly addressed in the Quran. The names of the Orders are: Catholic Nine Orders of Angels: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominions, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, ArchangelsThere are many video on the Archangels, Angels, Fallen Angels and Demons here at mythology explored by ANCIENT MYSTERY on youtube.
