Papers from the 3rd Enoch Seminar (Camaldoli 2005). —

“Distinguished in the field of Enochic studies, Gabriele Boccaccini led the way in June 2005 at the Third Enoch Seminar, entirely devoted to the Book of Parables in light of Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins. The unusual and compelling collection of essays found here reflects the spirit of sharing and dialogue that has made these seminars so popular and intriguing throughout the theological world. This fifth collection of essays from these historic meetings contains the observations and contemplations of forty-four scholars and includes a helpful introduction by the editor detailing the history of the movement, and two important conclusions a likely prospects for future research and an extensive bibliography from associate editor Jason von Ehrenkrook for further study. Enoch and the Messiah Son of Man will be a significant contribution for the understanding and discussion of ancient Judaism.” Publisher description. —
