Eve Exposed: Looking at Biblical, Rabbinic and Modern Texts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For millennia Eve's story has been read as vilifying women. But the actual biblical story, stripped of interpretative accretions, challenges traditional definitions of Eve--and all women. Was she an afterthought created as man's assistant, a seductress who introduced sin into the world, a temptress leading men astray? What do the texts tell us?
