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. In general, however, if an entity is not known for anything but malevolent activity, it is better suited for the list of demons.
