This study on the representations of Paradise in the Hebrew Bible (Genesis 2-3 and Ezekiel 28) also deals with the reception of the biblical accounts in early Jewish writings (Enochic texts, the Book of Jubilees, Qumran texts) in Rabbinics and Kabbalah, early mainstream Christianity and in early Christian apocryphal and Gnostic literature. Two further chapters are devoted to views of Paradise in the Christian Middle Ages. The volume concludes with the interpretation of Paradise in John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost.Table of ContentsPreface Abbreviations Paradise: from Persia, via Greece, into the Septuagint Gan-Eden in the Context of the Mythology of the Hebrew Bible Eden and Paradise: The Garden Motif in Some Early Jewish Texts (1 Enoch and other texts found at Qumran) Eden and the Temple: The Rewriting of Genesis 2:4-3:24 in The Book of Jubilees Man and Woman: Halakhah Based upon Eden in the Dead Sea Scrolls Paradise as Paradigm: Good and Evil in Rabbinica and Kabbalah A Visit to Paradise: Apocalypse of Paul 45 and Its Background A Resistant Interpretation of the Paradise Story in the Gnostic Testimony of Truth (Nag Hamm.
