VENTER, Pieter M.. Allotted place and cursed space in 1 Enoch 12-36. Old testam. essays [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.2, pp. 666-683. ISSN 2312-3621.

An analysis of the three journeys of Enoch (1 En. 12-36) shows that preference is given to the spatial aspect in these revelation narratives. Both the heavenly journey (1 En. 12-16) and the two earthly journeys to the ends of the earth (1 En. 17-36) implicate space. An actantial model as well as critical spatiality is used to analyze these stories. Allocated place and cursed space influenced by mantic wisdom using cosmological schemes are used here to depict the exclusive ideas of the author(s).
