    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 113.56

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...

  • 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.
