Archangel Gabriel is the messenger angel, acting as a messenger of God.
| The mathematical name refers to the tradition identifying the Archangel Gabriel as the angel who blows the horn to announce Judgment Day. Gabriel blowing a trumpet blast to indicate God's return to Earth is popular culture though the Bible never specifies Gabriel as the trumpeter.|
Gabriel is one of only 3 angels named in the Bible.
|Torricelli’s Trumpet, or Gabriel’s horn, is a staple of calculus textbooks. It may also be the perfect imaginary musical instrument: an object constituted by its precise mathematical description, yet impossible – due to its infinite length – to realize in material form.
