Abstract

134 | lenistic period interest in Genesis blossomed with the production of new scriptural and pseudepigraphal works based on Genesis: Enoch, Jubilees, the Testament of Adam, and the Life of Adam and Eve. These works were likely canonical for Greek-speaking Jews and the community at Qumran on the Dead Sea, and Enoch and Jubilees remain so for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Pilon is silent on the existence and interpretation of these texts. Pilon does consult some contemporary biblical scholarship, minimally. While she argues against original sin and a fall from grace (50) she does so without exploring the source of those notions in the writings of Augustine, Milton, and others, rather presuming those notions are articulated in the biblical text or are its normative interpretation for all readers. The volume might have worked well as a personal reflection. Instead it is offered as religious, even biblical and womens' studies. The project lacks basic scholarly competence in biblical or Quranic studies, including knowledge of biblical and other Semitic languages, detailed knowledge of the hadith (which are mentioned but in second-hand citation, see 120), a general survey of the relevant rabbinic and patristic commentaries on the text and familiarity with
