1 Enoch 91-108 (2007) is a book by Loren T. Stuckenbruck.


An English translation of the Epistle of Enoch, with notes and commentary. Includes Exhortation, Epistle of Enoch, Apocalypse of Weeks, Birth of Noah, and Eschatological Admonition (1 Enoch 91-108). Knows 49 mss., of which 12 are Eth. 1, and makes text-critical use of them with fresh readings; for Eth. II mss. depends on Charles and Knibb’s editions.

"The volume is a commentary on 1 Enoch chapters 91-108 that begins with the Ethiopic text tradition but also takes the Greek and Aramaic (Dead Sea Scrolls) evidence into account. This section of 1 Enoch, which contains material from at least five different documents composed some time during the 2nd century BCE, provides a window into the early stages of the reception of the earliest Enoch tradition, as it was being negotiated in relation to elitist religious opponents, on the one hand, and in relation to other Jewish traditions that were flourishing at the time."--Publisher description.


Published in Berlin [Germany]: Walter de Gruyter, 2007 (Commentaries on Early Jewish Literature).
