Speaker(s):
Phyllis Trible, Baldwin Professor Emerita of Sacred Literature, Union Theological Seminary

For millennia, readers have interpreted the story of “Adam and Eve” by pandering to him and blaming her for their expulsion from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2-3).  But there are more excellent ways.   This talk will undercut the traditional reading by exploring anew the story of Eve and Adam as they enter the Gardens of Morningside.
