Zophiel (God’s Spy) is a spirit invoked in the prayer

of the Master of
the Art in Solomonic conjuration rites. He is also one of Michael’s two
chieftains. Milton mentions Zophiel in Paradise Lost as the one informing
the heavenly hosts of a further attack by the rebel crew, whereas in
Friedrich Klopstock’s The Messiah he represents “the herald of hell.”
The American poet Maria Del Occidente chose Zophiel as one of the
main characters of her book-length poem Zophiel, inspired by the story
contained in the apocryphal Book of Tobit. In this poem, Zophiel is a
fallen angel but retains traces of his original virtue and beauty.
