Example text

76 As observed earlier, many of the places to which Enoch is taken in these chapters concern the realm of the dead or places of punishment. While the history of the nekyia and an assessment of this type of journey as a model for 1 Enoch 17–19 are considered more thoroughly in Section 3, let me state preliminarily that 1 Enoch 17–19 may also be regarded as a nekyia. If this Greek form were adopted by the pseudepigraphist, the content was certainly adapted to fit differing religious sensibilities. For example, 1 Enoch 17–19 is distinguished from other contemporary nekyiai by the nature of the afterlife envisaged in the Jewish apocalypse and by its view of the cosmos; the latter especially seems rather archaic compared to the cosmology proposed in the philosophically-oriented works of the Hellenistic and Roman periods.

Milik, Books of Enoch, 25. 16 Enoch and the Growth of an Apocalyptic Tradition, 110. 17 ‘The Books of Enoch (1 Enoch) and the Aramaic Fragments from Qumran,’ RevQ 14 (1989): 131–46; esp. 136–37. 23 In spite of what can appear to be a rather fluid narrative, chapters 17–19 still seem to introduce a distinct section of the Book of the Watchers that concerns otherworldly journeys (1 Enoch 17–36). Whereas chapters 6–16 are especially concerned with the watchers, their immoral conduct and subsequent punishment from God as well as Enoch’s intercession for the watchers and his ascent to the Divine, chapters 17–36 concentrate on the tours Enoch makes accompanied by angels.

These notable elements, which I examine in more detail in the following chapters, would seem completely extraneous and unserviceable to a bill of indictment directed against the watchers. The case may also be made that 1 Enoch 17–19 is distinguishable as a literary unit from chapters 20–36. Though 1 Enoch 21–36 also concerns cosmic journeys, the narrative presents a definitive conclusion to the tours of 1 Enoch 17–19. ” With that, Enoch’s tour of the cosmos, as well as the literary unit, is seemingly 25 Le Livre D’Hénoch: Fragments Grecs, Découverts à Akhmîm (Haute-Égypte) Publiés Avec Les Variantes du Texte Éthiopien (Paris: Ernest Leroux, 1892), 152.
