The Rape of Eve

Full Product Description

Scholars of New Testament and early Christian traditions have given new attention to the relationships between gender and imperial power in the Roman world. Celene Lillie examines core passages from three Gnostic texts from Nag Hammadi, On the Origin of the World, The Reality of the Rulers, and the Secret Revelation of John, in which Eve is portrayed as having been humiliated by the cosmic powers, compares that pattern with Gnostic savior motifs concerning Jesus and Seth, then sets it in the broader context of Roman imperial ideology.

The Rape of Eve by Celene Lillie was published by Fortress Press,U.S. in January 2017. The ISBN for The Rape of Eve is 9781506423364.
