Adam and Eve in 16th Century Germany

Just received an email about an interesting upcoming lecture to be given nearby at the Library of Congress:

Lecture: “ Creating Adam and Eve: Body, Soul and Gender in Sixteenth-century Germany,” Kathleen Crowther-Heyck, June 13, 12:00 Noon (LJ-119, Thomas Jefferson Building, Library of Congress).

This talk explores the meanings and uses of the story of Adam and Eve in 16th-century Germany. It focuses on two sets of stories about what happened to Adam and Eve after the fall: "Adam legends" from the MiddleAges and "catechism legends" from the 16th-century.
