The first love story, the first morality play--the story of Adam and Eve has inspired countless poets and artists and shaped Western civilization as we know it today. Through the use of paintings and interviews, a fascinating portrait of the lives of the first man and woman is created.
"Adam & Eve: Lost Innocence" is one of several special entries in the A&E network's "Biography" series. In many ways, Adam and Eve personify all of humanity's history: its birth, love and profound flaw of succumbing to temptation. The Lord fashioned Adam out of the earth's dust and, later, created Eve from Adam's rib. When Adam and Eve ate the "forbidden fruit," the twosome unwittingly damned all men and women -- forever. As always, this series draws on artifacts, paintings, location photography, and scholarly interviews to illuminate its subject.
