Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Seth in Jewish, Christian and Gnostic Literature contains the table of contents and an introduction. In the book the way in which Jews, Christians and Gnostics speak about Seth, the son of Adam is discussed. It hardly needs to be said that the origin and development of Christianity and Gnosticism cannot be examined without taking Judaism into consideration. In order to show how Jewish ideas were accepted by Christianity or were unacceptable to the Church, the author took as an example the ideas connected with Seth, the third son of Adam and Eve. It is well known that Seth played an especially important part in Gnosticism.

Keywords: Christian; Gnostic literature; Jewish ideas; Seth
