In The Slavonic Texts of 2 Enoch, Grant Macaskill publishes the manuscript evidence for this important pseudepigraphon in a format that, for the first time, allows synoptic comparison of the variants encountered. With the long and short recensions represented on facing pages, and variants listed against two exemplars (J and A), readers will be able to weigh the textual and linguistic evidence in a way that has previously been hindered by the available publications of 2 Enoch. The book also includes an introductory discussion of the manuscripts and the problems associated with text-critical work on them, and a translation of the neglected manuscript B, with notes on the significance of its readings for the reconstruction of an ur-text.
The Slavonic Texts of 2 Enoch
Mikhail Weisskopf, The Hebrew University, Translated by Lydia Wechsler, Edited by Judith Robey
The Veil of Moses describes the creation of Russian romantic literary stereotypes which shaped the opinion of the Russian public on the Jews.
Edited by Andrei Orlov, Marquette University and Gabriele Boccaccini, University of Michigan. Associate Editor Jason Zurawski, University of Michigan
This book presents a collection of papers from the fifth conference of the Enoch Seminar. The conference re-examined 2 Enoch, an early Jewish apocalyptic text previously known to scholars only in its Slavonic translation, in light of recently identified Coptic fragments.
The newly dicovered complete corpus of the Jewish poll-tax lists provides a totally new outlook on Jewish autonomy in eighteenth century Poland from which a full reconstruction of the Jewish settlement can be drawn. The book includes series of tables and maps.
Drawing on sources in original languages, the book offers the first comprehensive study of the history, ethnography and convoluted ethnic identity of the Galician Karaites, a non-Talmudic Turkic-speaking minority of Jewish scripturalists.
