The article investigates the the story about the planting and destruction of the heavenly garden found in the Slavonic version of 3 Baruch. The study shows a number of intriguing parallels between the theme of the garden in 3 Baruch and similar traditions found in the Enochic Book of Giants. In both accounts, the garden is depicted as the place of the primordial heavenly rebellion involving angelic beings. The study argues that the author of 3 Baruch is involved in anti-Enochic polemics, borrowing and rewriting Enochic motifs and themes from the Adamic perspective. The story of the planting and the destruction of the garden in 3 Baruch seems to represent the locus of intense debates involving substantial rewriting of the «original» Enochic motifs and themes.
