I've got three left to do but am stuck fast.
1D Criticise opening book of OT revealing early practice in Eden (6)

I want to answer "Nudism" but if that is right why is it right?

9A Nag, or variety of one (3)
d(if nudism is right)-n

13a Even couples in bathhouses like this (4)
-k-s

Only words I can fit in are "skis" and "ekes" but can't understand why either should fit.

Help!

Criticise opening book of OT revealing early practice in Eden

Numbers (Num) is one of the opening books (4th) of the OT. Could "dis" be criticise? (usually diss) Nu dis m?

And yet, post 3 had me convinced that Pangen was right, but pangen is in Chambers as "a hypothetical unit of living matter" which doesn't seem to fit the clue.

Could someone explain "gunnera" - perhaps I'm just dense! The "gun-" and "-n-" are OK but "-era" ?? and FSB ??
