Summary

The First Book of Adam and Eve, is part of a book entitled 'The Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan'; a sixth century work. The original language was Ge'ez, which is an ancient South Semitic language. It is a Christian extracanonical work; a piece of apocryphal literature which tells of the life of Adam and Eve after they were expelled from Eden, and sent to live in the Cave of Treasures. It then follows their time up until the point that Cain kills his brother Abel. Inbetween, it has the story of Adam and Eve's temptations, their trials, their visions of Satan, and the birth of their children. Considered pseudepigraphic, it is nonetheless an important piece of work, having survived many centuries. This is taken from Platt's work The Forgotten Books of Eden.

    ACT 1  
    Scene 1. At Windsor Castle, King Richard listens as his cousin Henry Bolingbroke accuses Thomas  
    Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk, of embezzling royal funds and of plotting the recent death of the Duke of  
    Gloucester. Mowbray insists that he is innocent. The King commands them to make peace but they  
    refuse to be reconciled and he orders a trial by combat.  
    Scene 2. The Duchess of Gloucester begs her brother-in-law, John of Gaunt, to revenge her husband’s  
    death. Gaunt says he cannot because Gloucester was killed on the King’s orders.  
    Scene 3. At Coventry, Bolingbroke and Mowbray prepare to settle their dispute. Richard, however,  
    stops the proceedings and banishes them both: Bolingbroke for six years and Mowbray for life. Gaunt  
    bids his son a sad farewell.  
    Scene 4. Richard notes the people’s affection for Bolingbroke. The King is planning to leave for  
    Ireland to quash a rebellion, when he is called to the bedside of the dying John of Gaunt.
