A basic introduction to the book of Enoch (1 Enoch) and a translation of the text.

The authors also wrote Hermeneia commentaries on 1 Enoch; the translation has been partially modified from those commentaries. The introduction provides a standard scholarly take on 1 Enoch, explaining the contents of its various sections, postulating possible dating, and providing a basic explanation of its textual history.

The translation itself is fresh and beneficial, far easier to follow and make sense of than the standard turn of the century translation by R.H. Charles. The translation is full of notes indicating where other textual witnesses diverge and how.

A useful resource to better understand the book of Enoch.

A thorough commentary on a sacred text accepted only by the Ethiopian church. I recently completed my undergraduate thesis on medieval angelology, and this text figured prominently. It is a shame it has not been further studied, however this commentary is excellent.
