Josephus was a historian who lived from 37 A.D. to about 100 A.D. He was a member of the priestly aristocracy, and was taken hostage by the Roman Empire in the great Jewish revolt of 66-70 A.D. Josephus spent the rest of his life in or around Rome as an advisor and historian to three emperors, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian.

The Books of Enoch
