In the first centuries of Christianity the book of Enoch was considered "canonical" in all respects. The fact is that the "ecclesiastical canon" was formed only in the fourth century and only then did one begin to distinguish the "revealed books" (the traditional ancient Testament and the Synoptic Gospels) and the "apocryphal books": the book of Enoch ended in this last.
The fact remains that, starting from the sixth century, the book had disappeared from the official lists. But he had not been forgotten: his memory gave rise to the flowering of a vast anecdotal and, at the same time, to the formation of an aura of mystery around his true nature and content.
