Abstract

This collection has its origins in the major development that occurred at the turn of the millennia in which a group of Enoch specialists initiated a series of conferences on Enochic literature. Papers from successive conferences in 2001, 2003, and 2005 have been published as The Origins of Enochic Judaism (Turin: Zamorani, 2002); Enoch and Qumran Origins: New Light on a Forgotten Connection (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2005); and Enoch and the Messiah Son of Man: Revisiting the Parables of Enoch (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2007); the papers of the 2007 conference will be published both as a volume and in the journal Henoch (the minor papers). The present additional collection brings together papers by key participants in the movement, intended “to summarize and intensify the results of the first two Enoch Seminars” (ix).
