Dear Milton List,

A question for the biblical scholars among you:

It has long been recognized by critics of Paradise Lost that the texts 
of Genesis on which it based, chapters 1 and 2, are inconsistent.  Adam 
is created after the animals in chapter 1 but before the animals in 
chapter 2.  Which biblical scholar of the seventeenth century first 
observed this discrepancy?  (I am assuming it to be 17th c scholar.)  
Thanks.
