The title of the blog, taken from the First Book of Enoch, refers to the teachings given to humanity by fallen angels, and reflects the joy I take in studying things that are utterly irrelevant.

That pretty much describes most of us, doesn't it?

You could spend a lifetime studying the insane lunacy that is 1 Enoch. Why not? People have done much crazier things.

Thanks. Bookmarked.

Just about an hour ago, I read a blog post there that accused James McGrath of professional incompetence, and there have been similar charges against Joel Watts of unsettledchristianity. But nothing that seemed libelous by internet standards.

Roman Law is critical for understanding Paul's opinions on circumcision, the Law, and the issue of freedom and slavery ... notice which Emperor's his opinions agree with (hint could be the two guys immediately after Trajan ... just saying)

Tufts University has a fantastic collection of on-line Greek texts, including Cassius Dio and Josephus
