  • Apocalypticism in the Dead Sea Scrollsby John J. Collins

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 41.95

    Since the photographs of the Dead Sea Scrolls were released in 1992, there has been an explosion of interest in them. This volume explores the issue of apocalypticism in the Scrolls; how the notions of the 'end', Messianic expectation and eternal life affected the Dead Sea sect, influenced Judaism and filtered into Christianity. Collins' volume provides... more...

  • The "Dead Sea Scrolls": A Biographyby John J. Collins

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 24.95

    Since they were first discovered in the caves at Qumran in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have aroused more fascination--and more controversy--than perhaps any other archaeological find. They appear to have been hidden in the Judean desert by the Essenes, a Jewish sect that existed around the time of Jesus, and they continue to inspire veneration and... more...

  • The Oxford Handbook of Apocalyptic Literatureby John J. Collins

    Oxford University Press, USA 2014; US$ 149.99

    Apocalypticism arose in ancient Judaism in the last centuries BCE and played a crucial role in the rise of Christianity.

To understand these... more...

  • Scriptures and Sectarianismby John J. Collins

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 113.56

    The Dead Sea Scrolls include many texts that were produced by a sectarian movement (and also many that were not). The movement had its origin in disputes about the interpretation of the Scriptures, especially the Torah, not in disputes about the priesthood as had earlier been assumed. The definitive break with the rest of Judean society should be dated... more...
