The Book of The Watchers (1 Enoch 1-36): an anti-Mosaic, non-Mosaic, or even pro-Mosaic writing?


Bachmann, Veronika (2011). The Book of The Watchers (1 Enoch 1-36): an anti-Mosaic, non-Mosaic, or even pro-Mosaic writing? Journal of Hebrew Scriptures, 11(4):1-23.

Abstract

The Book of the Watchers (BW) is generally considered a non-Mosaic if not an anti-Mosaic writing. In more recent research, discussions on the meaning of such labels are ever so prevalent. Nevertheless, the positions do not move far beyond the common patterns of interpretation. The present paper explores the different presuppositions and arguments supporting the assumption of the non- or even anti-Mosaic character of the BW and proposes a reading beyond the antagonism “Enochic” versus “Mosaic.”
