PhD dissertation supervised by Prof. André Lemaire, Director of Studies at the École Pratique des Hautes Études, Department of Historical and Philological Sciences, Chair of Hebrew and Aramaic Philology and Epigraphy.
This doctoral dissertation presents a new study of the Book of Enoch’s most ancient Aramaic manuscript, discovered at Qumran and bearing siglum 4Q201. It takes advantage of new computer tools (image processing, databases) to offer a palaeographical and philological analysis of each fragment composing this manuscript, with a systematic comparison to ancient Greek, Ethiopic, and Syriac witnesses.
Dissertation defended on December 13, 2007, in front of a jury composed by Profs.
