Douglas the bishop of Carlisle. The more ancient history of that book is well known. The church at first looked upon it as apocryphal; and as it was quoted in the book of Jude, the same suspicion fell upon that book, also.

For this reason, the council of Nice threw the epistle of Jude out of the canon, but the council of Trent, argu- ing better, replaced the apostle in the canon as before.

The following quotation demonstrates the typical diction of these funeral sermons: In the second part comes the application, first in general terms, finally in relation to Cotton Mother: Comprehensive references to scholarly works and philological analyses that discussed the Book of Enoch and weighed its significance in relation to the 26 Colman, The Holy Walk, 1.

Joseph Irons, The portrait of Enoch: Joseph Irons, occasioned by the departure of Mr. Samuel Carter, who entered into Glory, February 1st, , London: Printed for the Author, ; Joshua Fielden, Renowned excellence: Charles Ziegler, No doubt, the most fascinating episode in 1 Enoch is the story of the Watch- ers, their descending on the Daughters of Men, their siring destructive giant offspring, and their teaching humans technology, warfare, and cosmetics.

It did not take long for the Romantic poets and artists to become interested in this curious love affair. In , just before his death, Lord Byron — published a drama, Heaven and Earth, a Mystery, dealing with the romance between the Sons of God and the earthly women.


In the same year, his friend, the Irish poet Thomas Moore — , brought out his romantic epyllions, The Loves of Angels, equipped with meticulous notes, referring to the Book of Enoch and other apocryphal and classical texts. The foundation of my story, therefore, has as little to do with Holy Writ as have the dreams of the later Platonists, or the reveries of the Jew- ish divines; and, in appropriating the notion thus to the uses of poetry, I have done no more than establish it in that region of fiction, to which the opinions of the most rational Fathers, and of all other Christian theo- logians, have long ago consigned it.

The quotation is from p. Robert N. Essick and Donald Pearce ed. Indiana University Press, , fig. Even more boldly, the elderly William Blake — devoted a series of mysterious and at the same time sexually explicit illustrations to the Book of Enoch Fig. Reproduced from G. About the latter The Eclectic Review wrote as follows: According to the critic, being inconsistent with the Scriptures was considered to be a serious blunder as late as the nineteenth century.

To drift away from art and literature we might want to note the emergence of new Victorian Enochs, prophets, who claim to be righteous, chide the world, threaten with a new destruction or promise rescue, as it was granted to Noah before the Flood.

In a Scottish pastor, William Aldis published in Edinburgh a curious book that survives only in two known copies: I have not been able to find biographical information about William Aldis. The author was Edward Vaughan Hyde Kenealy — , one of the real eccentric characers of the Romantic era. Trained as a barrister, but because of various scandals turned into prophetic writer, the Oxford Dictionary of Na- tional Biography summarizes his works as follows: At the beginning of the book he writes a response to the letter of a reader who had commented on his previous vol- ume.

Here he praises esotericism as follows: What would the world be without the Supernatural? What the East with- out its divine Buddhas; its Zaradusht bright as the Morning Star, and the heaven-dreamer of Arabia? What would Europe have been in the long night of the middle ages if certain holy men and holy women had not had divine Visions of the Celestial?

Kelch der Wahrheit

Please check. I know Europe, and I believe it to be impossible to overstate the amount of sin and hypocrisy, and misery, which it contains; … and that our polti- cal system, which accumulates all the wealth in the coffers of the rich, while it makes the poor every day poorer, will end one day in a volcano of fire, of blood, and ruin.

I have read, a great deal about foreign peoples, and the result is this, that I find that they are almost and always the worse for intercourse with Euro- peans, whether they go in the guise of mercahnts or missionaries.

So in the writings of Aldis and Kenealy we see the reincarna- tion of Enoch the Prophet who witnessed the terrible judgement of God and had forewarned humans about its coming. The main character of the novel is Enoch, actually not the Patriarch, but the son of an Izraelite tribal leader whose father, upon his deathbed, gives him the Roll of Enoch, written by the Biblical Enoch, their forefather. Old Enoch appears to him in his sleep and brings him into the state of ascension on high.

Sussex, cit- ed in the odnb article, see above. I saw a man standing in the door of my pavilion; and he was glorious in appearance, like unto the angels of God; for I perceived him by the light that shone from his raiment and from his countenance. He moved swiftly toward me, as one that toucheth not the earth with his feet; and when he was beside my bed he uncovered my breast, and laid his hands thereon for a little season.

Then he passed his hands up and down over my face, In that moment I was filled with delight surpassing the chiefest pleasure it is given man to know. An instant my spirit lin- gered, hovering over the bed, and looked down in wonder upon my body that was prone thereon, as if in sleep. He pointed afar to the south. And I looked, and, behold, a naked rock; and the rock grew into a great hill, and went on to grow until it became a mountain.

And the mountain was four square at the foot, and the sides of it were smooth as if they were made of hammered stone, and they inclined, and they came together, in a sharp point, at the top. And yet he that was with me spake no word; but while I looked, and marveled to see the rock grow into a mountain, he pointed up into heaven, and, lo, a shaft of light, reaching far above all height that the eye of man could see, descended and rested on the top of the mountain.

At the end of the story he returns to his land in Philistia, unites his neighbors into a confederation under his own kingship and brings happiness to his people. Upon this occasion he once again experiences the ascension on high, when old Enoch lifts his soul out of his body and assures him about the success of his future plans.

This is represented in the novel by the Roll of Enoch, container of ancient and sacred wisdom. Today, historians reject both alternatives, but in the late nineteenth century LeRoy Hooker could easily be attracted to such ideas. The lat- ter, according to Jewish mystical tradition e. Actually in the novel it is Abraham, invited by the young Enoch to the court of Suphis, who finally convinces the pharaoh to adopt the religion of the one true God.

Again, O king, I ask thee. Which is better and more noble, to worship a god of thine own making or to worship the God of Heaven, who made thee and me and all people? And he answered noth- ing at all when Abraham ceased. Then Caphtor went near to Suphis and took hold of his hand, and cried. My lord! What aileth thee? His description of the experience of ascension on high closely corresponds how Moshe Idel has characterized this state and mental-magical exercise: Journeys and books about such journeys have been attributed to Moses, Abraham, Isaiah, and Enoch.

In some cases, deep transforma- tions of human personality, including some corporeal changes, are evi- denced as a result of their visits to the supernatural worlds.

This is how the biblical Enoch was guarded and guided by 47 Sefer Yetzirah 6: I am Enoch thy forefather that was taken from among men without death. Therefore it is that I cannot speak often with thee as a man speaketh with his friends; for thy flesh is yet unchanged; and it would not be for thy good that I should many times call thy spirit out of thy body as I have done this night […] Then we descended toward the earth, and passed through the covering of my pavilion to the bed whereon my body was lying.

And Enoch touched my body, and passed his hands over it as he did at the first, and my spirit returned into my body; but Enoch vanished out of my sight. In his preface, the novelist himself acknowledged his twofold debt as follows: Towards a Post modern Career of the Patriarch As I am coming to my conclusion I would like to highlight one more trend of interest in Enoch which completes the spectrum of cultural representa- tions focusing on the ancient patriarch.

One of the most important devel- opments in modern occultism was the rise of Theosophy in the second half of the nineteenth century. Her major works, 49 Hooker, Enoch the Philistine, Enoch is frequently men- tioned in these volumes, especially in the latter one. She called the Patriarch a mysterious cosmopolitan and identi- fied him as a generic mythogem, a representative of the Initiate, similar to or identical with the Egyptian Thoth, the Greek Hermes, the Latin Mercury, or the Arabic Idris.

All of them are sacred writers, Recorders of Occult and an- cient Wisdom ibid. This forking, alternative interpretation has its modern artistic representa- tions, too.

The character and the mythogem of Enoch has been fascinating humans since antiquity.

The story of the Patriarch is complex and manifold, its different elements have been used for different agendas through different systems of cultural representations and symbolizations. The Book s of Enoch are full of apocalyptic admonitions and visions which brought Enoch close to radical and subversive tendencies within Christianity and Judaism.

A special element in the Enoch-complex is the story of the reb- el angels Watchers , their mating with the Daughters of Men, the disastrous offspring, the giants, and the ensuing cataclysmic punishment of God. This has been intriguing for two reasons. Partly, as a fascinating, thrilling story the kind which have always been coveted in popular literature, and since they were con- nected with a Biblical story, writers and artists felt authorized to recycle them.

But furthermore, the story of the Watchers also offered an alternative to the Fall in the Garden of Eden. On Satanism see Asprem, Arguing with Angels. Last but not least, the indications that Enoch was given a tour in heaven and was taught all the secrets of the universe, gave rise to esoteric-magical speculations according to which he was the inventor of arts and sciences, in fact a great magician, similar to or identical with Hermes Trismegistus.

No doubt, the discovery and popularization of the long lost versions of the Book of Enoch catalyzed this interest and we also see an increase in the number of literary works, be they lyrical, epic, or novels.

Ethical impurity grows out of situations that are controllable and are not natural or necessary, such as delaying purification from physical impurity, polluting specific sancta, sexual transgressions, idolatry, and murder. The locus of uncleanness may be the person, but proscriptions talk more of the pollution of the sanctuary or land.

Furthermore, the characteristics of the giants evoke demons, well known from Mesopotamian descriptions as tall and obtrusive beings, roaming in bands, attacking their victims indiscriminately. Demons ravage the work of humans,29 devour the flesh of animals and humans, and consume their blood.

They were born from the illegitimate relations between heaven and earth. The binding of the Watchers calls to mind the binding of the demon, the only successfull method against them. Metallurgy, various forms of which are mentioned in the Asael-tradition 1 En , is again closely related to the notion of magic, ironsmiths being considered as sorcerers in the belief system of the ancient and modern Near East,30 and weapons were attributed to magical power.

The same is true for jewels and cosmetics, which served originally as amulets with apotropaic functions. The Book of the Watchers attributes the origin of the demons to the Watchers through the giants 1 En The continuing presence of evil in the world is explained in terms of the activities of evil spirits. In Ethiopic, ironsmith and magician are denoted by the same word duban- ansa ; see W. Hinrichs ].


In the Ethiopian tradition the belief that ironsmiths have magic capabilities and knowledge is alive to this day; they are considered to be sorcerers and therefore members of other groups do not marry their daughters to them. Its content shows a similarity with the teachings of Shemihazah and his companions, referred to in the Enochic story.

Their name — the Watchers — might refer to the stars and heavenly bodies of the night sky. They are heavenly beings, which transmit heavenly decisions uttered by their council. Similarly, the angels executing the act of punishment might have been visualized as human figures. According to the Book of the Giants they were able to fly with the help of their hands.

The members of the group take an oath before their common act of rebellion. Their sin was to descend to have sexual relations with earthly women, and thus rebellion in the story is equated with leaving their heavenly stations.

Ps Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale in Wien, Juli Mesopotamian thinking had two traditions. Fixed stars were thought to be inscribed onto the surface of the heavens; that implies that that they thought the surface of the heaven rotated every 24 hours, since inscribed stars could not move independently.

At the same time it was observed that the sun, moon, and planets do not maintain fixed positions in relation to the stars. In this schematic calendar, thirty days comprise one month, and twelve months, that is, three hundred and sixty days, comprise one year. Observations of three different systems were made: the day of the disapperance of the moon in every month, i.

They preserved an account of the appointment of the moon and sun-gods to their heavenly duties by Anu, Enlil, and Ea. The text was edited by B. Steele — A. The basic model of the idea of the revolt of the Watchers might have been also an astrological one. Cosmic destinies are established at the time of creation, at which time the gods become their guardians. See F. As to the nature of the heavenly bodies the idea of the basic identity of the stars and spirits was also present in Mesopotamia; the biblical concept of the heavenly hosts might have been connected with similar ideas.

By all means, the way the Watchers were punished following their rebellion reflects that they were attributed a spiritual nature: being eternal beings they were bound but not killed.

They are told to work on their dwelling place, the earth, attacking indiscriminately humans, men and women. See Horowitz, Cosmic Geography, pp. The twin deities bearing the heaven are often represented as males. The expression is standard in the Aramaic magical texts of incantations and amulets. New Testament Greek renders it usually with pneuma.

Beck, , pp. Thus impurity originates from heavenly stars, i. Impurity was a basic concept at Qumran and in continuous references to the Watchers in later tradition. A retelling of their story is to be found in the Animal Apocalypse 1 En , an overview of human history from the beginnings shown to Enoch in subsequent visions and shaped in terms of animal imagery. The beings born from their union are elephants, camels, and asses who began to terrify and devour the bulls 1 En They are to be identified in the work with the peoples surrounding Israel.

Popovic, Reading the Human Body. See also A. However, evil is originated in the myths or various cultures from cosmical and not historical or sociological sources. References to their sin and their fear of the future judgment are to be found in the introductory part of the book 1 En The Watchers ask Enoch to intercede for them 1 En ; The only character depicted as a human figure is Noah.

The astronomical secrets described in 1 En and deal with astronomical and calendrical questions. Fragments of this part were not found among the Qumran Aramaic manuscripts; supposedly this part was not known in the community. The reference links the Asael tradition with that on Shemihaza and his companions and with the tradition on the giants. The military hierarchy of the group is highlighted. A strong interest in sacrificial practice allows us to posit a priestly author. Similarly, 1 En 53 and speak about evil kings.

They are angels, with faces shining like the sun, their eyes are like burning candles, fire is coming out of their mouths, their clothes and singing are various, and their arms are like golden wings. They call Enoch by name, and take him to heaven nebo on their wings 2 En Above a heavenly lake more angels are shown to Enoch; their clothes are like all the flowers of the earth 2 En Flying spirits with twelve wings and with undetermined functions are also part of the heavenly realm 2 En The figures of the angels seen by Enoch in various heavens are basically the same.

Angels in the higher heavens are described in more detail. Nothing but the number refers to the tradition of the Watchers.

Their appearance is not described but they must be of the same nature as the heavenly angels; the place of their punishment is also in the first heaven. Their sin is that they followed their own will — the same sin which is mentioned in the story of the Watchers from BW. Probably the same group of Watchers is mentioned in the second heaven na vtoroe nebo along with the condemned.

A different place in the same heaven is the site of the punishment of a group of sinners who committed the same sins as the Watchers. Sins and their punishments seemingly show a tendency of sublimation since the sins of those tortured in the higher heavens reveal a more extended, and more socially focused, list of ethical sins, some items being shaped in the spirit of the New Testament.

Odeberg, 3 Enoch or the Hebrew Book of Enoch. With a Prolegomenon of Jonas C. Descriptions in 3 Enoch reflect a system of seven heavens. The story itself is usually not retold; only reference is made to the tradition, sometimes without names or with names different from those of the story in 1 Enoch. Only the motifs mentioned lead us to think that the authors of the 3 Enoch tractates knew the story of 1 Enoch.

They are high, terrible,83 and honored above all others 3 En They stand on the two sides of the throne of judgment and judge all the celestials no reference is made to any special group of angels among those who are to be judged. The work dates from the fifth or sixth century. The idea of seven heavens might have originated from Mesopotamian astronomical lore, see Horowitz, Mesopotamian Cosmic Geography, pp. See J.CEU Press Undena Publications, , 17—18 and J. The quotation is from p. It is commonly claimed that the Enochic gates were derived from an older Mesopotamian division of the sky into three paths, also separating the eastern and western horizons into three arcs.
