BOOK OF ENOCH

Date of Manuscript: 1450 This newly discovered copy of the apocalyptic and pseudepigraphic biblical book of the lost prophet Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, is arguably the “most important Jewish writing that has survived the Greco-Roman period.” Scholars believe that the earliest Ethiopic versions (of which the present manuscript is one of just two extant) preserve the closest record of the Aramaic (and possibly Semitic) versions written in the time of the Old Testament. #0946
