The Ethiopian Enoch Society

Recently I began working on developing the Ethiopian Enoch Society, in the frame work of the Ethiopian Astronomical Society. I do believe there is a need for organization to promote the contribution of Enoch and the Book of Enoch. It is well known that a complete copy of the book has existed for hudreds of years in Ethiopian churches before it was discovered in 1800s. Many research groups traslated the book, and it is now the centeral research topic as to how it relates to currently accepted topics. Please refer to http://sirius-c.ncat.edu/EthiopianEnochSociety
