||The Archangel Michael is one of the principal angels in Judeo-Christian and Islamic tradition. He is viewed as the good Angel of Death (as opposed to Samael, the evil Angel of Death), and as the field commander of the Army of God. Mentioned by name in the Book of Daniel (Daniel 10:13, 21, 12:1), the Talmudic tradition rendered his name as meaning "who is like El (God)?" A popular mistake has been to translate the name as "One who is like God." It is, however, meant as a question: "Who is like the Lord?" The name is a war-cry of the angels in the battle fought in heaven against Satan and his followers. Also referred to in Joshua 5:13-15, and in the New Testament in Jude 9 and Revelation 12:7-8. Patron Saint of paratroopers, among others. From Saint Catherine's Monastery located at the foot of Mount Sinai in Egypt, one of the oldest continuously functioning Christian monasteries in the world and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
