about

"The Book of Jubilees" is a 1895 treatise by Robert Henry Charles exploring the "Jubilee," a Jewish and Christian concept of a special year of universal pardon occurring every fiftieth year during which-as described in Leviticus-prisoners and slaves are be freed, debts forgiven, and the mercies of God would manifested. Contents include: "Introduction," "Short Account of the Book," "The Various Titles of the Book," "The Ethiopic Manuscripts," "Editions of the Ethiopic Version," "Translations," "Critical Inquiries," The Versions of Jubilees," "Greek, Ethiopic, Latin, Versions," "Translations from the Greek," "Symbols and Brackets used in this Edition," "Translations and Notes," "Index I.," and "Index II.." Robert Henry Charles (1855-1931) was an Irish theologian and scholar most famous for his English translations of apocryphal and pseudepigraphal works. Other notable books by this author include: "Book of Enoch" (1906), "The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs" (1908), and "Ascension of Isaiah" (1900). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
