Orlov and Boccaccini, New Perspectives on 2 Enoch

MYSTICAL POLITICS: Mystical interpolations into 2 Enoch. Rebecca Lesses discusses some chapters from New Perspectives on 2 Enoch: No Longer Slavonic Only, edited by Andrei Orlov and Gabrielle Boccaccini (Brill, 2012). More on the Enoch Seminar that generated the book here.

A translation of the Coptic fragments of 2 Enoch by their discoverer Joost Hagen is slated to be published in volume 2 of the texts edited for the More Old Testament Pseudepigraph Project.

Have I mentioned that Old Testament Pseudepigrapha: More Noncanonical Scriptures vol. 1, the first volume of texts edited for the project, is coming out this autumn?
