9781523661992: The Book Of Enoch: Translated From Professor Dillmann's Ethioptic Text

Charles's Translation of the Book of Enoch, translated from Professor Dillmann's Ethiopic text, emended and revised in accordance with hitherto uncollated Ethiopic MSS. and with the Gizeh and other Greek and Latin fragments, which are here published in full. Edited, with Introduction, Notes, Appendices, and Indices by R. H. Charles, M.A., Trinity College, Dublin, and Exeter College, Oxford. Oxford, the Clarendon Press, 1893. It tells of Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, who lived for 365 years and “walked with God”. The heavenly revolt of the fallen angels, and their descent to earth to cohabit with the daughters of men and to reveal secret knowledge to mankind, a story hinted at in Gen. 6:1-4. The present book from the Ethiopic belongs to the second and first centuries B.C. All the writers of the New Testament were familiar with it, and were more or less influenced by it in thought and diction. It is quoted as a genuine production of Enoch by S. Jude, and as Scripture by S. Barnabas. The authors of the Book of Jubilees, the Apocalypse of Baruch and IV Ezra, laid it under con- tribution. With the earlier Fathers and Apologists it had all the weight of a canonical book, but towards the close of the third and the beginning of the fourth centuries it began to be discredited, and finally fell under the ban of the Church. Standard, unaltered, unedited text, this is a reproduction from the original book. This translation is the standard for The Book of Enoch.

He wrote the articles in the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica attributed to the initials "R. H. C.".
