Translatio corporis Adae: Trajectories of a Parabiblical Tradition

P. 153-178.

The article discusses the traditions relating to Adam’s burial in Jerusalem. The author explains that this motif emerged at the intersection of two themes: Jesus’s crucifixion on Golgotha and the typological connection between Adam and Christ. Numerous explanations of the arrival of Adam’s body at Golgotha, which have been transmitted in diverse linguistic and cultural areas, developed from this motif.
