How did they become such a prominent part of mainstream Christian thought and theology-and Jewish and Muslim tradition as well-, and what forms did their story take as it was told and retold? To investigate the traces of Eve and Adam through the centuries is to discover a surprising variety of interpretations. The chapters of this book come from eleven European scholars. Bob Becking writes on how the identity of the primaeval couple is constructed in Genesis, Geert van Oyen on Eve as a character in the New Testament, Willemien Otten on Adam and Eve in Augustine, Harm Goris on them in Aquinas, Theo Bell on them in Luther.

Scientists from Newton to Hawking add their unique contributions to this story, as we encounter Einstein’s astounding vision of gravity as the curvature of space-time and arrive at the breathtakingly beautiful field equations.

In the years before World War I, the Russian-born painter Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944), then living in Germany, formed with the artist Franz Marc and others the group known as the Blue Rider. Together they developed a variety of Expressionism notable for its rich colors. Kandinsky, however, wanted to go further, and continued to push his work to the edge of abstraction, and then beyond it, becoming one of the founders of twentieth-century abstract art. No longer limited to the natural appearances of things, Kandinsky exploited the expressive power of color and of complex, intertwined lines to create his own visual world.
