This collection of essays by notable scholars offers a unique, multi-faceted approach to the understanding of the Garden story. Starting with the motifs, context, structure and language of the biblical text itself, the chapters trace the Jewish and Christian exegetical traditions, and developments in literature and iconography. This is an invaluable book for students and scholars of biblical studies, theology, literature, art history and the psychology of religion.
