I chose the Archangel Uriel as my patron saint, so I was trying to look up traditions about him on the internet. However, it's difficult to tell which ones are actual traditions and which ones are made up by the sort of people who assign certain archangels colors and sigils and stuff.

One of the things I read was that it was Uriel who drove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and guarded it with a flaming sword, but I also read that it was Michael. I think Uriel is sometimes depicted with a flaming sword, right? I know Michael is a lot. Which one was it, if there's a definitive tradition?
