  • A figure who is accuser, seducer and destroyer, and has been regarded as both good and evil. He is viewed as the evil Angel of Death (as opposed to Michael, the good Angel of Death). In the Secrets of Enoch (Enoch II) he is a prince of demons and a magician. He was a guardian angel of Esau and a patron of the sinful empire of Rome. Samael is sometimes considered to be the true angelic name of Satan. The etymology of his name is sometimes thought to be a combination of 'sam', meaning "poison/venom", and 'el', meaning "of God"; thus he is the "poison of God". (Also Sammael) (Wikipedia)
