Product description

This volume provides a systematic study of all the manuscripts of the Greek version of Enoch. The book's central portion examines the extant Greek manuscripts both individually and in their mutual relationships. Attention is also directed to the question of the date of the translation and whether multiple translation of the book existed in antiquity. The third section of the text consists of a comparison of the Aramaic and Greek texts to determine specific translation techniques employed. From this an attempt is made to characterize the translation both with regard to literalness/freeness and with regard to Greek style.
