Two reasons for posting details of this recent Conference on Enoch and literature relating to Enoch (primarily Jubilees and 1 Enoch) – information care of April De Conick over at Forbidden Gospels. First, it was held at the Monastery at Camaldoli, which I have visited (Grazie a Zia Alma) and, frankly, is about the perfect place to hold an academic conference (fantastic food, good walking, Tuscany … you know what I mean). Full information about the programme and papers can be found here.
Secondly, Rob is probably not on email yet, so this is a way of remembering to refer him to those papers that relate to Genesis 6.1-4. Full texts of papers are only available to participants, but authors’ emails are also given. Here are the relevant ones for the Giants / Watchers tradition:
Jubilees and Sexual Transgression (abstract |
William Loader, Murdoch University, Western Australia, Australian Research Council (email)
The Origin of Evil in Jubilees (abstract | paper)
Loren Stuckenbruck, University of Durham, England (email)
Anyone fancy organising a NT / Baptist kind of conference in an Italian Monastery and Hermitage, let me know.
