Description

The Book of Enoch the Prophet is an apocryphal text that has been believed to have been lost for ages, but was discovered at the end of the 18th century in Abyssinia. The book is attributed to Enoch, a biblical figure who was said to have been taken up to heaven by God and given divine knowledge. The book contains a series of visions and revelations that Enoch received, including prophecies about the end of the world and the coming of the Messiah. It also includes descriptions of angels and their roles in the universe, as well as discussions of astronomy, cosmology, and the nature of the universe. The book is considered an important text in Jewish and Christian mysticism, and has influenced many religious and philosophical traditions throughout history. This particular edition of the book was published in 1838, and includes an introduction and notes by the editor.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
