Abstract

was included in an Enochic pentateuch at least by the late first century B.C.E. However, with Dimant the author questions Milik's classification of the Book of Giants as a pseudepigraphon written in the name of Enoch (as the other sections of 1 Enoch), as Enoch is neither mentioned as narrator nor portrayed as recipient of revelation. It is not easy to pass over Dimanfs critical questions, which should have lead the author to be more reserved on this issue: Was the Book of Giants ever an integral part of an Enochic tetrateuchal scroll (with the then longer Astronomical Book as scroll number 2), or was it rather regarded as a separate work? If the Book of Giants is a radical reworking of the Book of Watchers with a different literary frame, how easy would early scribal interpreters join these two books together as consecutive sections of an Enochic pentateuch? A note on lQ23 9/14/15 3 ]tunl'::l ii~, nOI "was great on the earth["-perhaps reconstruct nlillD'lO "his (man's) [wickedn]ess was great on the earth".
