Foremother Eve

Dionisy's frescoes. Foremother Eve

Foremother of humanity, wife of Adam, created from his rib. Succumbing to the serpent’s temptations Eve ate the forbidden fruit. She is referred to in the New Testament (II Corinthians 11:3, I Timothy 2:14), theological essays and liturgical texts as guilty of the humanity’s fall.
She is also depicted in the scene of the Last Judgement (the Deesis).
