DFG Project: I Enoch Text-critical Edition and Translation
The Chair of New Testament is pleased to announce that the DFG (German Research Council) has granted the financing of a major project to produce a new text-critical edition of I Enoch and its translation into German and English. I Enoch, a book that gathers traditions composed between the late 4th century BCE and the end of the 1st century CE, is preserved among Aramaic fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls; it is only, however, fully extant in Ge'ez (old Ethiopic) manuscripts. In the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, it occupies an important place in the biblical tradition. Based on many Ge'ez manuscripts coming to light in recent years, this project is preparing a critical edition, the first to be published since that of R.H. Charles in 1906.
