This work presents the most important Greek manuscript witnesses of the Life of Adam and Eve, a popular Jewish pseudepigraphical text that has undergone christianization in its present forms. The synopticon initiates and facilitates comparisons of the Greek tradition with the other extant linguistic versions to a depth largely unexplored, and it permits identification and assessment of textual adaptations from the perspective of a single language. It makes a variety of relatively unfamiliar Greek texts available, and is a significant tool for assessing the Christian reception of Jewish texts. This synopticon will be used to complement prior studies, initiate future studies, make widely available relatively unfamiliar texts, and generate insights into the intertextual relationship between Judaism and Christianity.

John R. Levison is Associate Professor of the Practice of Biblical Interpretation at The Divinity School, Duke University, and is currently a Fellow of the National Humanities Center.
