The work known by the title “The Cave of Treasures” has a fascinating transmission history among the Oriental Christian traditions. The text, which is intended to provide a history of the generations from Adam to Christ, includes many interesting variations and additions to biblical narratives, particularly about the Patriarchs. The text exists in both Syriac and Arabic, and it is also known in an Ethiopic recension under the title “Book of Adam and Eve,” which is also the title of a previous work that is likely a source used in the compilation of the “Cave of Treasures.” In the present work, Albrecht Götze presents a thorough study of the text of the “Cave of Treasures,” and pays particular attention to its transmission and the sources used in its compilation.
