Example text

None of the ‘classical’ Jewish apocalypses contains physiognomic descriptions, but such occur regularly in later apocalypses. 27 In particular, physiognomic descriptions of the Antichrist are given in many Greek and Armenian apocalypses. These were apparently intended to enable the reader to recognize the Antichrist, whose appearance was one of the events presaging the eschaton.

In order to situate The Vision of Enoch the Just in a broader context, and to single out certain particularities of Armenian eschatology. This approach is an embodiment of his call for broadening the comparative frames within which Armenian apocalyptica are studied to include the Greek, Iranian and Syriac traditions; for, he observes, there existed at the time an apocalyptic “koine of genre, style and structures” between these cultures and traditions. -Methodius is justly considered the most significant and influential apocalyptic text of the Christian East, but its transmission and reception in Armenian have largely been ignored by scholars until recently.

Here four traditions are combined. The first is that Enos, son of Seth, invented writing and astronomy. This is in accordance with the tradition about Enoch known in the various Enoch texts and there clearly is a confusion here of the two similarly-named individuals. 22 This writing, moreover, preserved the true names of the animals discovered by Adam and in it was the “Vision of Enoch” (I presume, not the extant Armenian work).
