Archangel Michael – Color
The old saying “Michel ignites the light” indicates that in the past, artificial light was used from the day of remembrance of the Archangel Michael, and that until Candlemas.
And – because our ancestors could have a party for every occasion – the Monday after Michaelis was called Lichtbratlmontag.
Because before the first day of work in artificial light there was a feast, e.g. B. a turkey (= cobbler). September 29th is today the common day of remembrance of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Rafael, who are named in the Bible.
They have been venerated since the 4th century and – since the calendar reform after the Second Vatican Council – celebrated in a separate festival on September 29th. Originally this day was the consecration of the Church of Saint Michael in Rome.
The German word angel corresponds to the Latin angelus and denotes the messengers of God. The Bible describes them as men who prove themselves to be messengers of God (Gen 18) and as shining apparitions (Lk 2, 9).
The Bible mentions only four angels by name: Michael, Gabriel and Rafael. A fourth is a “fallen” angel: Satan or the devil called himself Lucifer.
The three archangels known by name in the Bible all have the syllable “El”, which means God, in their Hebrew names.
In order to clarify this relationship, to express that no angel is even conceivable without a relationship to God, let alone namable, one should actually write the names in German as follows: Micha-El, Gabri-El, Rafa-El.

More recently, angels seem to be becoming popular again – after they were not mentioned at all at times – if this is measured by the increasing number of book titles on the subject or by demoscopic surveys: After all, every second German believes, according to a Forsa survey from 1995, that he has a personal guardian angel;
55 percent of those surveyed consider angels to be a religious symbol, 35 percent are sure that angels really exist. Angels were not an issue in the art of the past few decades;
In the last few centuries they had degenerated into chubby winged heads in the visual arts. In Christian art, however, they have been depicted from the beginning, almost always with wings since the 4th century, in order to distinguish them from people and to identify them as spiritual beings.
As spiritual beings, angels live in transcendence, are oriented towards God, serve him and praise him (cf. the iconographic motifs of the praise of angels, angels making music, the angel choirs …). Just as angels point the shepherds to the manger in the narrative of the birth, they have an auxiliary and protective function (“guardian angel”) for people.
In literature, but above all in art, the presence of angels can make the word of God behind them visible, i.e. through the immanent angels the transcendence becomes visible. The visible angels symbolize the invisible, the physically visible attest to the spiritually invisible.
This is also the Hebrew meaning of his name. The Old Testament knows Michael as one of the highest angels, the heavenly prince of Israel, who stands by this people; the New Testament knows him as an archangel who fights against the devil (Jud 9, taken from Jewish legend, and Apk 12,7f.).
The extra-biblical representations have richly adorned Michael: In Old Testament times as one of the six or seven prince angels, the special confidante of God who keeps the keys of heaven, chief commander of the angels.
In New Testament times: as divine commissioners for tasks that require special strength, as intercessors of people with God, as angels of the Christian people, as supporters of the dying who lead the souls of the deceased to heaven. The latter is related to the frequent St. Michael patron saint of cemetery chapels and the depiction of Michael with a “balance of the soul”.
Because of his ability to defend himself, Michael was chosen as patron of castle chapels. It is not without reason that the Catholic Office in Berlin invites representatives from politics and the church to a “Michael Reception” every year.
A very special relationship: Ludwig the Pious (813–840), son of Charlemagne, deliberately set the Memorial Day for Michael on September 29th (Mainz Synod 813), which was remembered by the Teutons Wotans.
Michael became the much venerated patron of the Germans – and thus the role model of the “German Michel”. It was not until the French Revolution that the “German Michel” became a figure of mockery: a pointed, loyal, naive night specter.
On the Castel Sant’Angelo there is a statue of the Archangel Michael, which shows the angel putting the sword in its sheath.

The Michael Memorial Day is associated with proverbs: The gardeners used the motto: “A tree planted by Saint Michael, it grows from the hour” on command. A tree, planted on Candlemas [= February 2nd] only, see how you teach it to grow “.
A weather rule reads: “It rains gently on Michel Day, followed by a mild winter”. Michaeli’s day has been a deadline, lottery and weather day for centuries; it was linked to taxes, work bans, harvest customs, changes of servants, fairs, youth parades, school graduation.
On Michael’s Eve, Michael’s fires were lit in the past. They were a sign that artificial light was used from that day on. The associated saying goes: “Mariä Candlemas blows out the light, Saint Michael lights it up again”.
The three Saturdays after Michaelmas were called “Golden Saturdays” in the old days. Its name is derived from the “golden masses” that have been celebrated on these Saturdays in honor of Mary since the 14th century as atonement for the past of the year.
The services and days were called “golden” because of the excellent effect that was ascribed to them. According to a – but later – legend, Emperor Ferdinand III. (1636–1657) introduced the celebration.
Messenger of God, protector of mankind – insurance advertising shamelessly uses the knowledge of angels: because the guardian angel supposedly does not always pay attention, insurance is safer.
Hardly any hit leaves the angel – or in new German: the “angel” – as a cliché for the adored.
Despite everything: Behind the superficial exploitation of angels, people seem to have faith in God’s messengers and their guardian angels.
