Chapter Summary

Irenaeus' unitary reading of the two creation accounts in Genesis is an integral aspect of his approach to the text. Nowhere does he acknowledge the existence of two unique or independent strands of history or interpretation present in Genesis 1-2, but throughout treats that which modern scholarship refers to as the 'two accounts' as a coherent whole. The manner of this approach has been treated in the text, but may be further evidenced by a comparison of his usage of the verses that form the two accounts, demonstrating the manner in which he connects passages from each account to texts in the other.
