Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan

From Academic Kids

The Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan is a Christian pseudepigraphical work found in Ethiopic and Arabic, 5th century CE at earliest.

It was first translated from the Ethiopian version into German by Dillman, "Das christliche Adambuch" (Göttingen, 1853) translated into English by S. C. Malan as The Book of Adam and Eve, also called The Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan, 1882 London, Williams and Norgate, ISBN 0766145999.

About half of Malan's translation is included as the "First Book of Adam and Eve" and the "Second Book of Adam and Eve" in the anthology The Forgotten Books of Eden (Alpha House, 1927), a volume many times reissued on its own (ISBN 051730886X, ISBN 1564596362, ISBN 0529033852) and combined with The Lost Books of Eden as The Lost Books of the Bible and the Forgotten Books of Eden (ISBN 0452009448, ISBN 1881316637, ISBN 9995244381).

The work begins immediately after the expulsion from the Garden of Eden and ends with the testmament and translation of Enoch.

Great emphasis on Adam's sorrow and helplessness in the world outside the garden. The Sons of God who appear in Genesis are identified as the children of Seth and the Daughters of Men as women descended from Cain who successfully tempt most of the Sethites under the instigation of Genum son of Lamech, this Genum seemingly a conflation of the Biblical Jubal and Tubal-Cain.

For other pseudepigraphical books on Adam and Eve see Life of Adam and Eve, Apocalypse of Adam and Testament of Adam.
