An archangel /ˌɑːrkˈeɪndʒəl/ is an angel of high rank. The word "archangel" itself is usually associated with the Abrahamic religions, but beings that are very similar to archangels are found in a number of religious traditions.

The word archangel is derived from the Greek ἀρχάγγελος (arch- + angel, literally chief angel).
