The Books of Enoch are several works that are attributed to the Enoch of Genesis, son of Jared, father of Methuselah and great-grandfather of Noah. Parts of the first book, Enoch I, are dated between the 3rd and 1st century BC (up to three hundred years before Christ) and primarily written in Ge'ez or the Ethiopic language; therefore also known as the Ethiopian Enoch. Recently small fragments have been found in both Aramaic and Greek in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The second book of Enoch or Enoch II was preserved solely in the Slavonic language and also known as the Slavic Enoch, most likely translated from Greek. It is believed that many of these books were considered heretical books and denounced, banned and destroyed by the early Christian church along with the Gnostic Gospels and many other ancient books.
