Abstract

This article parallels St Irenaeus of Lyon's reading of the Book of Genesis to the targumic and midrashic literature, arguing that the Genesis narrative and its “carnal” reading are used both by Irenaeus, as a polemical tool against the different Gnostic anthropological positions, and by rabbinic sages, trying to distance themselves from the Platonizing tendencies of Hellenized Judaism.
