The article explores the theme of the secrets of creation in 2 Enoch. The Slavonic pseudepigraphon appears to contain a systematic tendency of treating the story of creation as containing the most esoteric knowledge. Even though 2 Enoch deals with various meterological, astronomical, and cosmological re-velations, it specifically emphasizes the «secrecy» of the account of creation. 2 Enoch s emphasis on the «secrecy» of the creation story demonstrates an in-triguing parallel to the later rabbinic approach to as esoteric knowledge. 2 Enoch, therefore, can be seen as an important step in the shaping of the later rabbinic understanding of «secret things», which eventually led to the esoterism of the Account of Creation.
