Most angel believers acknowledge there are&nbsp;<a href="/Inspiration/Angels/Archangels.aspx">four major archangels</a>: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel. However, depending on your faith, you may believe in just one, three, or up to seven (or more) archangels. <br /><br />These seven archangels may also vary by name--Islam and Kabbalah do not list the same seven archangels--although Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael are names that commonly overlap. Test your knowledge of all archangels from different faiths. <br /><br /><b>More on Archangels:</b><br />• <a href="/Inspiration/Angels/Archangels.aspx">Our Archangels Page</a><br />• <a href="/Inspiration/Angels/2007/02/Archangels.aspx">Comparing the Four Archangels</a><br />• <a href="/Inspiration/Angels/2008/12/Get-to-Know-the-12-Archangels.aspx">Photo Gallery:&nbsp;Get to Know 12&nbsp;Archangels</a> <br /><br /><br /><font size="1">Susan Gregg is the author of eight books including "<a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1592333435/beliefnet" target="_blank">The Encyclopedia of Angels, Spirit Guides and Ascended Masters</a>" and the blogger of <a href="http://blog.beliefnet.com/angelsonyourshoulder/">Angels on Your Shoulder</a> </font>
