Spotlight on Gabriel

Spotlight on Gabriel

The ancient stone tablet(1) known as Gabriel's Vision of Revelations is thought to pre-date Jesus. It features an inscription that quotes the Archangel Gabriel. One of the two highest ranking angels in Judeo-Christian and Islamic religious tradition, Gabriel is said to be the angel of "annunciation, resurrection, mercy, vengeance, death and revelation," according to A Dictionary of Angels(2). The above depiction of Gabriel (click on image for larger) is a detail from Da Vinci's The Annunciation.
