Summary:
The study of the Adam literature has taken an increasingly central role in the study of ancient Judaism and Christianity. It is the role of Adam and Eve as paradigmatic of the human condition that gives this literature its special role. This second volume of concordances of the Armenian apocryphal Adam books makes this important collection of Armenian medieval texts available to scholars. Lipscomb's edition is now fully accessible. The Armenians were particularly productive of literature relating to the first created human beings, and in their literary creations they reveal both their imaginative creativity and their theological and conceptual sensitivities. Stone has published numerous texts and studies relating to the Armenian apocrypha. This is the second volume of a projected three-volume set.
