Chapter Summary

This chapter surveys the images of the temple in the Book of the Watchers, the Apocalypse of the Animals, and the Apocalypse of Weeks. It examines those images against the diversity of conceptualizations of temples and the temple present in early Judaism. The chapter focuses upon architectural details, as sketchy as they may be, as well as issues related to location implicit in access to the celestial temple from Dan, the ancient rival of Jerusalem. The decision in this particular study is to limit the works examined to the earlier portions of 1 Enoch. The chapter also examines the conceptualization of the celestial and eschatological temples in the early Enoch literature in light of traditions about temples and the temple in Judaism of the period to establish the role of the temple in that literature.

Keywords: Apocalypse; celestial temple; Enoch Tradition; eschatological temple; Jerusalem; Judaism
