Haniel

The Virtue Haniel, engraving by Crispijn van de Passe, circa 1575. Biblioteca Nacional de España, Madrid.

Haniel (Hebrew: הניאל, "Joy of God" or Hebrew: חַנִּיאֵל, "Grace of God,"; Coptic: ⲁⲛⲁⲛⲓⲏⲗ[1]; Arabic: عنيائيل‎, 'Anya'il), also known as Anael, Hanael or Aniel, is an angel in Jewish lore and angelology, and is often included in lists as being one of the seven archangels.[2] Haniel is generally associated with the planet Venus, and is the archangel of the sephirah Netzach. The name Haniel probably derives from Hebrew hana'ah, "joy," "pleasure" (qualities associated with Venus) + the suffix -el, "God." Haniel is one of the archangels encrypted in the Sigillum Dei Aemeth of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly.
