Chapter Summary

The majority of the Jewish extra-biblical materials that circulated in the Slavic lands came from Byzantium which exercised an unmatched formative influence on the development of the Slavic literary heritage. The majority of the pseudepigraphical materials circulated in the Slavic milieu were also preserved by other Christian traditions and survived not only in Slavonic, but also in Greek, Latin, Syriac, Ethiopic, Georgian, Armenian, and other languages of the Christian East and West. Yet, among the great variety of the pseudepigraphical materials that circulated in the Slavic literary environment, several documents survived solely in their Slavonic translations. Two of the most important Jewish pseudepigraphical writings which survived only in the Slavonic language are 2 (Slavonic) Enoch and the Apocalypse of Abraham. This chapter introduces these two unique documents in greater detail.

Keywords: 2 Enoch; Apocalypse of Abraham; Jewish pseudepigraphical texts; Slavic literary environment
