I Know Lilith Married Fraser, But I Wouldn't Know Her From Adam
Yesterday I was reading "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe." To my boys and there was a couple of lines where the Beavers were explaining the origin of the White Witch. They said that she was a descendant from Lilith, Adam's first wife. I’ve been hearing a lot about Lilith and I know somewhat of the "mythology", but what I want to know is where she came from? Does she have any religious basis in apocrypha or was she cooked up by the women’s movement? This would be highly unlikely since CS Lewis wrote this book before the women’s movement.
