Michael, head of the angels next to Lucifer (Satan), when the latter led a rebellion to God, fought against the rebels and drove Satan and his hordes into the Underworld. The Archangel is honored in many Christian denominations (Anglican, Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Lutheran) as well as in Islam and Judaism.
According to the legend, around the year 490 AD the Archangel Michael appeared several times to the Bishop of Siponto, asking that the Monte Sant'Angelo cave would be dedicated to Christian worship and promising protection of nearby Siponto from pagan invaders. These were the first apparitions of Michael recorded in Western Europe.
Another place of veneration of the Archangel Michael, with a similar story, is the French island of Mont Saint-Michel. Here, according to legend, the archangel Michael appeared in 709 in St. Hubert, Bishop of Avranches, asking that a church be built on the rock. The bishop, however, ignored the request twice until Michael burned his skull with the touch of his finger making a round hole, but left him alive. The skull of St. Hubert with the hole is preserved in the cathedral of Avranches.
