This is a list of angels in theology, including both specific angels (e.g. Gabriel) and types of angels (e.g. Seraphim).

Note that some overlap is to be expected with the list of theological demons entry, since various traditions have different classifications for the spirits they mention. Though an angel's actions may seem malevolent, there is a difference between an angel and a demon in that an angel works for a divine purpose beyond human comprehension.
