Brother Gebre Menfes Kidus,
As you may very well know, our church has the “ANDIMTA” way of interpreting holy scriptures, liturgies, hymns, etc. This way of interpretation has been used by Tewahido scholars (Liqawunt) beginning from around the fourth and fifth century A.D. In this way of interpretation, one statement from a holy book could, sometimes, be given more than one possible (optional) interpretations. The “ANDIMTA” tradition is a very interesting scholarly tradition in Tewahido school “Guba’e Bet” which I would like you to explore further, if, of course, you have the time.
According to my oral sources, in the “ANDIMTA” of the “watchers” of the book of Enoch, the watchers are “Andim fallen angels” literally (Bequmu), “Andim the children of Seth (Deqiqe Seth). The Andimta describes and gives weight to the fact that the fallen angels were the children of Seth. Our synaxarium and other birana sources also prove this. Therefore, most of Tewahido scholars take the fallen angels as “Deqiqe Seth”.
Why are the children of Seth called as fallen angels?
The children of Seth, who were of the children of Adam, dwelt on the mountain, high up (Debr Qidus), while they preserved their virginity, their innocence and their glory like angels; and were then called 'angels of God.' But when they transgressed and mingled with the children of Cain, and begat children, many mistakenly said, that angels had come down from heaven, and mingled with the daughters of men. Angels, who are spirits, can not be found committing sin with human beings. This can never happen. If such a thing were of the nature of angels, or satan, that fell, they would not leave one woman on earth, undefiled.
