  • Scripture and Interpretationby Ariel Feldman; Liora Goldman; Devorah Dimant

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Some of the Dead Sea Scrolls are texts which rewrite the Hebrew Bible. They differ from the literary products of the Qumran ascetic community by missing the sectarian particular style and terminology. These rewritten Bible texts may therefore shed light on the origins and sources of this community. Most of the scholarly attention has... 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...

  • The Land to the Elect and Justice for Allby Mika S. Pajunen

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2013; US$ 52.04

    Religionswissenschaft   Mika S. Pajunen contributes both to the understanding of manuscript 4Q381 from the Dead Sea Scrolls and to broader issues related to the reconstruction of damaged scrolls and to the reading of psalms in late Second Temple Judaism.

  • The Qumran Rule Texts in Contextby Charlotte Hempel

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 132.64

    Ever since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls the Community Rule has been at the forefront of the scholarly imagination and is often considered a direct channel to life on the ground at Khirbet Qumran - an ancient version of 'reality television'. After the full publication of the Dead Sea Scrolls one might legitimately have expected that the complete... more...
