ON THE COVER: Enoch, top right, writes his collection of visions and prophecies. “The Book of Enoch” is illuminated by Matthew Black in “The Strange Visions of Enoch”. Traditionally, but falsely, attributed to Methuselah’s father, the Book of Enoch comes down to us in Aramaic, Greek and Ethiopic versions and is preserved in its entirety only in Ethiopic. This manuscript page from the monastery of Gunda Gundie in Ethiopia was painted in the fourteenth or fifteenth century. Fellow visionaries in company with Enoch are (clockwise): Esdras, also writing and like Enoch distinguished by the title of “scribe,” Elisha grasping the cloak of his master Elijah, and Elijah riding to heaven on a red horse.
