Excerpt from Modern Language Notes, Vol. 31: 1916
In his attractive edition of Patience Professor Gollancz proposes Raguel for Ragnel of line 188, assuming that the ms. should be read u rather than n. He then connects the name with the "apocryphal Enoch where Raguel is the angel of chastisement; " see his note. The reading is inviting, and had occurred to mo the I had connected it with the name Raguel in Tobit vi, 10 and other places in the Bible. My own difficulty has been to account for the transfer of the name to a devil. Professor Gollancz has seemed to find this easier, the he has shown no intervening link between "Raguel, one of the holy angels who takes vengeance on the earth and the luminaries" (Schodde's Enoch, ch. xx, p. 01), and the devil name which he assumes.
The difficulty in determining whether the word contains u or n, a difficulty admitted for Patience, may perhaps be settled by comparing the other Middle English manuscripts in which the name is used. It appears in two passages of the Chester and one of the Digby Plays, and these have been examined for me by competent readers.
