Explore the origins and meanings of the fallen angels myths in Judeo-Christian tradition and their implications for the problem of evil.
The Book of Enoch is an early Jewish book ascribed to the profit Enoch, great-grandfather of Noah. It is considered a non-canonical (rather than Orthodox) text but is often referred to in later writings. The text contains the Book of the Watchers, thought to date back to 300BC, which describes how the angels (called Watchers) fell from Heaven and fathered the Nephilim.
