The Book of Enoch is a non-canonical Jewish work attributed to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah. The book is thought to date to about 300 BC and includes a detailed account of the fall of the angels in its section, the Book of the Watchers.
Fallen Angels are those who rebelled against God and were thrown out of Heaven. The term 'fallen angel' is not found in the Hebrew Bible or New Testament but the mythology was known within Second Temple Judaism, with the primary source being the non-canonical Book of Enoch. The Book of Revelation also refers to the myth, describing the great dragon thrown out of Heaven after being defeated in the War in Heaven by Michael and his army of angels.
