Book Description:
Satan deceived Adam and Eve for a second time. They concluded a contract with the Devil, submitting their offspring to his rule 'until the Unbegotten is born an the Undying One dies'. Christ's baptism puts an end to this contract and servitude. At least, this is what we learn from a legend which spread eastward from Greece to Armenia and Georgia, and which is still popular in tales of the region. In his book, Michael Stone pursues this tale through its sometime exotic transmission and explores the world view that emerges from it, contrasting it with the Western view, perpetuated by Augustine, of Adam's sin in the Garden.
