Uʹriel

.

Regent of the Sun,” and “sharpest-sighted spirit of all in heaven.” (Milton: Paradise Lost, iii. 690.)

Longfellow, in the Golden Legend, makes Raphael the angel of the Sun, and Uriel the minister of Mars. (See Raphael.)

“I am the minister of Mars.

The strongest star among the stars.

My songs of power prelude

The march and battle of man’s life.

And for the suffering and the strife

I give him fortitude.”


The Miracle Play, iii.
