Ben Dov on the Watchers and Mesopotamian inscriptions

REMNANT OF GIANTS: Is the Watcher/Fallen Angel Myth a reinterpretation of Mesopotamian inscriptions?
Jonathan Ben-Dov (University of Haifa) has developed a very interesting theory about the origin of the early Jewish tradition of the Fallen Angels and Giants. He presented it at Boston College on November 20, 2013, in a paper entitled “Iconography and Myth: From Nebuchadnezzar to the Fallen Angels”.
