    Lilith - by John Collier, 1887. In Jewish folklore, Lilith becomes Adam's first wife, who was created at the same time and from the same earth as Adam. This contrasts with Eve, who was created from one of Adam's ribs. The legend was greatly developed during the Middle Ages. In the 13th Century writings of Rabbi Isaac ben Jacob ha-Cohen, for example, Lilith left Adam after she refused to become subservient to him.

    Lilith was Adam's first wife. Modern feminists celebrate her bold struggle for independence from Adam. Lilith represents chaos, seduction and ungodliness.
