One of the earliest examples of Archangel Art can be found in the old church of San Michele at Ravenna. The mosaic in the apse exhibits Christ in the center, bearing in one hand the cross as a trophy or sceptre, and in the other an open book. On each side stand Michael and Gabriel, two of the most well-known archangels, with vast wings and long sceptres. Their names are inscribed above, but without the Sanctus and without the Glory. It appears that in the middle of the sixth century, the title of Saint, though in use, had not been given to the Archangels.
