The Archangel Michael is known to both Eastern and Western Churches, as well as the Jewish faith. Though the Jewish faith has a rabbinical prohibition against people appealing to angels as intermediaries between God and his people, Michael’s popularity among people of faith was such that he came to occupy a place in Jewish liturgy.
For the people of Ukraine, Michael holds a particularly high place as the protector of the nation and the capital of Kiev. His image is often recreated in many different forms. He is at times depicted alone, or even alongside other angels such as Gabriel. In many depictions he is featured as an angelic warrior with full armor, a helmet, sword, and shield.
