Chapter Summary

The text known as 2 (Slavonic Apocalypse of ) Enoch is known only from a number of manuscripts written in various dialects of Church Slavonic and dating from the 14th-18th centuries. Christfried Böttrich reconstructed a possible transmission-history of the work, identifying Jewish-Mystical expansions, early Christian expansions and Byzantine Chronographic expansions, before identifying traces of dependence upon 2 Enoch in certain early works. The author summarises these possible expansions briefly as they can provide helpful inroads into the question of which parts of the book are secondary. The narrative logic of 2 Enoch is clearly that the eschatological community receiving the work have been given a revelation that allows them to live in proper accordance with the will of the Creator God, a will that is part of the very design plan of the world.

Keywords: 2 Enoch; Byzantine Chronographic expansions; Christfried Böttrich; Church Slavonic dialects; early Christian expansions; Jewish-Mystical expansions
