"Michael and his angels won the victory over the dragon, which is to say Lucifer, and all his followers when he drove them out of Heaven. For when Lucifer sought to be equal to God, the Archangel Michael, standard-bearer of the heavenly host, came forward, and cast the rebels out of Heaven, imprisoning them in the dark regions of the air until the day of Judgement. They are not permitted to dwell in Heaven, which is the upper region of the air, and is bright and pleasant; nor with us on earth, lest they molest us excesively."
Text from The Golden Legend by Jacobus de Voraigne, born circa 1228
