Adamgirk` PDF

This is the first English translation of the major Armenian epic on Adam and Eve composed by Arakel of Siwnik in the early fifteenth century. Arakel writes extremely powerful narrative poetry, as in his description of the brilliance of paradise, of Satans mustering his hosts against Adam and Eve, and Eves inner struggle between obedience to God and Satans seduction. In parts the epic is in dialogue form between Adam, Eve, and God. It also pays much attention to
the typology of Adam and Christ, or Adams sin and death and Christs crucifixion. By implication, this story, from an Eastern Christian tradition, is the story of all humans, and bears comparison with later biblical epics, such as Miltons Paradise Lost. Michael E. Stones version preserves a
balance between literary felicity and faithfulness to the original. His Introduction sets the work and its author in historical, religious, and literary context.

E. Nickelsburg, 1 Enoch 1, 85-89, pp. 364-367).Some “animals” (notably Noah and Moses) are eventually transformed into “men,” which, according to M. Barker, Hidden, p. 45
