Camael, also spelled Khamuel, Camiel, Cameel and Camniel, is the archangel of strength, courage and war in Christian and Jewish mythology and angelology.

Camael is probably an alternate spelling of either חַמּוּאֵל Ḥammuʼēl "anger/wrath of God", from ḥammāh חַמָּה "heat", "rage"[1] or Qmuʼēl קְמוּאֵל "God is risen", "raised by God", "one who sees/stands before God", from qum קוּם "to arise", "to stand up".[2]

According to poet Gustav Davidson's popular work A Dictionary of Angels, Including the Fallen Angels (1967), he is known as one of the ten Kabbalah angels, assigned to the sephira Gevurah. Camael's name is also included in Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite' 5th or 6th century Corpus Areopagiticum as one of the Seven Archangels along with Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Jophiel, and Zadkiel.[3] He is claimed to be the leader of the forces that expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden holding a flaming sword. However, in iconography he is often depicted holding a cup.

Camael was excluded from the Holy See's list of named angels mentioned in the Bible in the Directory of Public Piety (2002). A cult of veneration is thus excluded for Catholics.[
