This image, called "The Temptation of Adam and Eve", featured in the Sistine Chapel, depicts Lilith as being the serpent that convinces them to eat of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Note that during the Renaissance period, it was Eve and not Lilith who was portrayed as the most beautiful one. This is because at the time, Lilith was considered a predatory demoness and nothing more, whereas Eve was considered to be the feminine ideal. In the current feminist belief, it is the exact opposite. Eve is now seen as being weak and is blamed for the original sin and it is Lilith who is celebrated for her independence.

Oddly, in this image, I find Eve to be the more attractive physically. Something about the half-woman, half-serpent thing turns me off in a big way.
