* PseudocanonicalFic: An interesting example, in that whether the original work which declared her Adam's first wife was meant to be a raunchy {{Satire}}[=/=]StealthParody or an unintentionally erotic {{Anvilicious}} morality tale, it still managed to somehow [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar get away with quite a bit of sex and borderline heresy]] by not quite contradicting scripture and invoking at least the pretense of being a morality tale.

Added DiffLines:

* FairForItsDay: Her most widely known origin story was, once again, written in the Early Middle Ages. Keep in mind that women didn't have as many rights back then as they did even in the mid-1800s, so this trope is naturally par for the course.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Many Kabbalists were fond to integrate Lilith in their works, but she was specially [[{{Pun}} hot]] among the Jewish communities of 13th century Spain, which was already a laboratory of religious influences. Most of the Kabbalah treatises that expand on her, like the Midrash ABKIR, the ''Treatise on the Left Emanation'' and the Zohar, were either written or popularized there.

* ValuesDissonance: The most popular origin story was penned when women were still very much subservient to men. Should the story have been written down in the late 20th century, she would have gotten a pat on the back for being rather independent (rapes of men and murders of children aside, that is).
