Who Is Amenadiel?
In the Lucifer TV series, Amenadiel is portrayed as Lucifer’s (the main character) brother, one of the most powerful Archangels and the oldest one among them.
As the oldest, he also possesses great strength, which can rival only Lucifer’s. He is one of the fallen angels who came to earth and a warrior loyal to God and humanity.
The television series is based on the comic book series called The Sandman, in which both Lucifer and Amenadiel have supporting roles. In the comic, he is who belonged to the class of angels called Thrones, and hated his brother Lucifer.
He was immortal and had incredible strength, stamina, and speed. Amenadiel is among the main characters in the TV series, and he has his own unique personality.
However, there are hardly any mentions of him outside of the show and the comic book it is based on, which is why many people might not be familiar with his name.
Other Mentions of Amenadiel
It is not that common to hear Amenadiel’s name unless you have watched the TV series or read the comic. However, despite the very few mentions, we can still explore the appearance of Amenadiel in these texts:
- The Bible
- The Book of Enoch
- Theurgia Goetia
Amenadiel Bible Mentions
The character of Amenadiel is portrayed in the TV series as the oldest and one of the strongest Archangels and Lucifer’s brother, so we could think at first that maybe he is mentioned in the Bible in a similar way.
However, this sacred text does not seem to have any mention of him and does not describe Archangels extensively.
Amenadiel in The Book of Enoch
The Book of Enoch is an ancient religious text that among other things talks about fallen angels and the origins of demons. The first part of this text, known as The Book of the Watchers, describes the kind of angels known as the Watchers, their fall from Heaven, and their interaction with humans on earth.
It seems that Amenadiel is also among the fallen angels who participated in the rebellion against God. If you have not heard before about the angels’ rebellion, it refers to the war between angels in Heaven led by Archangel Michael and Lucifer on opposite sides, described in The Book of Revelation.
The goal of the rebellious angels was to overthrow the rule of their Father and create a new kingdom. However, the side of Archangel Michael was victorious in this war, so the angels on Lucifer’s side could no longer live in Heaven and fell to earth.
The TV series Lucifer also shows Amenadiel as a fallen angel, but he is loyal to his father and to human beings.
Amenadiel in Ars Theurgia Goetia
Theurgia Goetia is one of the five books which comprise the anonymous book on demons that dates to the 17th century called The Lesser Key of Solomon. It is still regarded as one of the most important texts about demons in Christianity.
In Theurgia Goetia, Amenadiel is not an angel, but a demon, the emperor in the West. He is a powerful being thought to command many demon dukes and spirits.
Although this mention of Amenadiel is different from his character as an Archangel in the TV series, he is still depicted as a being with great power and authority.
Conclusion about Amenadiel
Amenadiel is hardly mentioned in religious texts, and we find the most developed description of his origins and character in the works of popular culture. But despite the few mentions, even in older texts, his name is associated with powerful, non-human beings.
Therefore, it is up to you to decide what to make of Amenadiel, although keeping in mind that the comic book series and the TV show were created for entertainment.
