Litvinau, Fiodar (2019): A note on the Greek and Ethiopic text of 1 Enoch 5:8. In: Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha, Vol. 29, No. 1: pp. 28-35

Abstract

Greek and Ethiopic versions of 1 Enoch 5:8 preserve a different text at the end of the passage. This note aims to demonstrate the superiority of the Ethiopic text of 1 En. 5:8 over the version preserved in Codex Panapolitanus by arguing that the Greek reading must be treated as a scribal addition influenced by Gnostic terminology.
