The Archangel on top of his shrine, which is in turn at the summit of the mausoleum of Hadrian at Castel Sant’Angelo, Rome, Italy. According to tradition, Mikha’El appeared here sheathing his sword in 590, in response to the prayers of Pope-Saint Gregory the Great, after a deadly plague had broken out in Rome and its surroundings. The Archangel’s visitation marked the end of death among the people by the plague.
