The Babylonians revered the seven planets as gods, and these, according to W. O. E. Oesterley, were the prototype for the Judeo-Christian archangels. The amesha spentas of India have also been regarded as the prototype. The term archangels can be used to describe any angel higher than the order of angels, in addition to being the name of a specific rank of angels in the celestial hierarchy. The psuedo-Dionysians rank them as eighth, only one level higher than angels. This can be a bit misleading, as archangels are most commonly considered to be the greatest of all angels.

The main duty of the Archangels is to intercede on humanity's behalf so that God may forgive its sins. Or, as it says in the apocryphal Testament of Levi, the archangels "minister and make propitiation to the Lord for the sins of ignorance and of the righteous." They are constantly at war with Satan and his hordes, protecting the world from his continuous assaults. The archangels are also closely associated with the planets and the signs of the zodiac.

Muslim Archangels:

According to Muslim lore there are only 4 archangels:
Gabriel, Michael, Azrael, and Israfel.

The reason other faiths tend to prefer the number seven is because it is a more mystical number and because, as it says in Esther 1:14, there were "Seven princes who saw the king's (God''s) face."

Zoroastrian Amesha Spentas

Their name signifies sacred or immortal beings. They, along with the Amshaspands, stand before God's throne and execute his orders. These Persian entities are sometimes
identified with the Sephiroth of the Tree of Life and have dominion over the planets. Their highest occult significance is as the Svarah, a group of beings that are of pure thought and incapable of being perceived by the senses. Their opposites are the daevas.

The "holy immortal ones" are:
Armazd (chief)
Ameretat (immortality)
Ar(a)maiti (holy harmony, and a female)
Asha Vahishta (righteousness)
Haurvatat (salvation)
Kshathra Vairya (rulership)
S(a)raosha (the seventh)
Vohu Manah (good thought)

Of old:
Ardibehist
Azargushtasp
Azarkhurdad
