Sketches in Angelology, article in Bibliotheca Sacra and Theological Review 1843
Paganism and Christianity by James A Farrer 1891 (Still less did Catholicism introduce any change into the Pagan theory of secondary or subordinate divine agencies. Only a change of diction ensued, the word angels or messengers, which had long been in use as a synonym for the gods, coming at last to supersede the latter term altogether. The saints and martyrs displaced the gods and heroes, but the new angel-worship differed to no appreciable degree, theoretically or practically, from the old polytheism it supplanted.)

The Autobiography of Satan by John Relly Beard - 1872 ("There you have the full picture of 'the fall of the angels,' involving the incarceration of Azazyel, their leader, and the everlasting punishment with which their crimes were repaid: the entire fiction of 'the devil and his angels' you have there in an anonymous book anterior to Christ, and long anterior to the Gospels and the New Testament in general, including the Apocalypse, which still retains, as do the Gospels, some of the lurid imagery of Enoch the fanatic.")
The evolution of Christianity by Charles Gill 1883 ("Two hundred sons of heaven or angels descended upon Ardis, the top of Mount Armon, under the leadership of Samyaza, and selected wives among the most beautiful daughters of men, who became the mothers of monstrous giants, of appetites so destructive that they
not only devoured birds, beasts, reptiles, and fishes, but even lived, as cannibals, on human flesh. This appalling reign of violence and cruelty on earth at length aroused Michael, Gabriel, Eaphael, and other loyal members of the heavenly Host...")

One of these angels, called guardian, is obliged to stand by each one of us all the days of our life. Temples, altars, prayers and sacrifices are offered to them.")

John Calvin - Commentary on Daniel (in searchable pdf format)
"He adds next, Behold! Michael, one of the chief leaders or princes, came to strengthen me. Some think the word Michael represents Christ, and I do not object to this opinion. Clearly enough, if all angels keep watch over the faithful and elect, still Christ holds the first rank among them, because he is their head, and uses their ministry and assistance to defend all his people."
The Geneva Study Bible (in text format) "Even though God could by one angel destroy all the world, yet to assure his children of his love he sends forth double power, even Michael, that is, Christ Jesus the head of angels."

"The Second Archangel, Michael, became Jesus, "the Son of Man,""
Review in the International Journal of Ethics 1907
"in Enoch xlvi, etc., the term "Son of Man" had been made descriptive of a heavenly being who might be the archangel Michael, and who was expected to become the Messiah. It is only a step from this to such a use on the part of Jesus as we have supposed, though a step which only a religious genius could take."
Review in _The Prophetic News and Israel's Watchman_By Rev. J. A. Seiss 1882

The Christian Verity Stated in Reply to a Unitarian (has a chapter on The Angel with Moses and the Judges) by Walter Chamberlain 1861
On the First Three Gospels by ERNEST DE BUNSEN (in Misc Notes and Queries)
"Luke has not hesitated to refer mysteriously to the Essenic and Paulinic doctrine of Jesus Christ as the Angel-Messiah. There can be no doubt that already Stephen regarded Jesus as the incarnate Wisdom of God to whom had been attributed a premundane personality by the side of God in the Book of Proverbs, though without an indication of a future incarnation of the Divine Wisdom. With this isolated passage stands in direct connection the statement in the Targum that the world and man were created through the Word or Memra, here called ' the thought or Word of God,' and identified by Targumists with the Metatron or ' Angel by God's throne,' who went before and followed Israel in the wilderness. We pointed out that this Angel, the Angel-Messiah, is by Stephen and Paul identified with Christ."
Angelology by G. Clayton 1851
A Reply to Dr Ralph Wilson by Heinz Schmitz:
"Jesus has been given authority by his Father to raise the dead. (Jn.5:25,26).
But the voice of the archangel also raises the dead (1Thes. 4:16; cf Dan.12:2). Michael is called "the great prince" (Dan. 12:1). Christ is called a "princely ruler" and "prince of peace" (Isa.9:6). In Daniel chapter 7, there is a prophecy about the march of world powers to the end of the age. At the climax of that prophecy we read that "someone like a son of man" was "given rulership and dignity and kingdom," and that one is Jesus Christ. (Dan.7:13, 14) In another prophecy Daniel wrote that reached down to "the time of the end" (Dan.10:13;11:40) Michael would stand up: "And during that time Michael will stand up." (Da 12:1) In Daniel's prophecy, 'standing up' frequently refers to the action of a king, either taking up his royal power or acting effectively in his capacity as King. (Dan.11:2-4,7,16,20,21) Michael's "standing" indicates a ruler and supports the conclusion that Michael is Jesus Christ, since Jesus is Jehovah's/Yahweh's appointed King. Both prophecies deal with the same time and the same event...thus the conclusion is obvious. Satan is abyssed by an *angel* for a thousand years. (Rev.20:1, 2, 10) . The demons identified Christ as the one who was to hurl them into the "abyss" (Mt 8:29). The nations are destroyed by Jesus and *his* army of angels. (Rev.12:12; 17:16, 17; 19:11-16) Jesus is also prophesied as the seed that is to crush Satan's head (Gen.3:15), but yet Michael with "his angels" does this in Revelation 12."
Abaddon/Apollyon-Demonic Devil or Angelic Christ? by Heinz Schmitz
The Bible Doctrine of God by W. Kinkade 1829
"The title Michael, the Archangel, literally signifies the head messenger that is like God. This must be Jesus Christ, because we all acknowledge that he is the image of God, and the head messenger that was ever sent into our world."
