Focus of and Associations with Archangel Raziel

Archangel Raziel is said to have written the Book of Raziel which has also been called the book of 1500 secrets (or 'keys'), containing eternal knowledge of both heaven and earth. According to various traditions this important text was in the possession of, read or used by Adam, Enoch, Noah and Soloman. It's said that its contents included instructions used by Noah to build the ark. However, the Book of Raziel was written in a mysterious 'language of angels' so obscure that even many of the angels could not understand it and its meaning could not be accessed today.
