This volume deals with the three stories about the creation of man and woman in the Hebrew Bible (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7; and 2:18-25) and with diverse interpretations of these narratives in Judaism and Christianity, particularly in ancient Jewish and Christian texts: Old Testament Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Philo, the apostle Paul, Patristic, Rabbinic, and Gnostic texts. Other chapters are devoted to John Milton's recreation of Eve and Adam, to a psycho-analytical reconsideration of the biblical creation stories, and to divine creation as a model for human creation in theatre and other art forms.
