The Bible and Literature: a Personal View by Northrop Frye - Program 15 "The Question of Primogeniture"

The law of primogeniture by which rights of inheritance are passed to the eldest male is frequently overridden in the Bible. Frye explains how the recurrence of this practice emphasizes the priority of divine intervention over man-made law. Contains material from Lecture 12.
