Winner of the 1990 National Jewish Book Award for Scholarship

This innovative, interdisciplinary book reconstructs the career of Genesis I:28 in Judaism and Christianity, from antiquity through the Reformation. Jeremy Cohen tracks the text through all the Jewish and Christian sources in which it figures significantly--in law, exegesis, homily, theology, mysticism, philosophy, and even vernacular poetry. 'Brilliant.' --American Historical Review
