Chapter Summary

This section presents a table of references in Irenaeus to passages from Genesis 1-11. A particular difficulty is encountered in attempting to tabulate references to Genesis 1.26, given that any occurrence of the phrase 'image and likeness' in the Irenaean corpus might be considered a partial direct quotation, even though no other reference may be made to the verse itself. For the entries on this verse alone, non-bracketed references are to sections in which Irenaeus' use of the terms 'image and likeness' seems intentionally aimed at calling to the reader's attention the context of Genesis 1. Bracketed references are to passages which utilise this phrase without any apparent intention on Irenaeus' part to relate his comment directly to the Genesis text.
