Northwest of the Dead Sea lies the ruins of a community long known to the Bedouins as "Khirbet Qumran". Almost 900 manuscript fragments have been found in caves near this site between 1947 and 1975, adding to the understanding of ancient Judaism. The discoveries at Qumran are documented in this volume. Hartmut Stegemann draws on 1990s research to decipher the meaning of the historical facts regarding the Qumran community and to answer in an understandable way many of the questions that have provoked speculation since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The text analyzes the purpose of the Q

The papers in this volume are arranged in three sections. "Sapiental Texts" contains studies on wisdom texts, "Liturgical and Poetical Texts" deals with independent poetic or liturgical compositions and "Qumran wisdom and the New Testament" explores the relationship of wisdom texts and passages from the New Testament. This collection of Qumran papers will provide study material for researchers and students in ancient Judaism and Christian origins and Biblical studies.

New Qumran Texts and Studies contains 18 papers from the first meeting of the International Organization for Qumran Studies (Paris, 1992). Seven studies analyse parts of previously unedited texts: 4Q47 (A. Rofe, E.C. Ulrich), 4Q222 (J.C. VanderKam), 4Q265 (J.M. Baumgarten), 4Q286-290 (B. Nitzan), 4Q385(B) (D. Dimant), and the Psalm scrolls (P.W. Flint). Some of the other studies discuss various aspects of well known texts: 1QIsa(a) (J. Cook), The Temple Scroll (L.H. Schiffman, D.D. Swanson), and the Hodayot (L. Vegas Montaner). Yet others cover a range of subjects: the p

The present volume contains a selection of studies on the Aramaic texts from Qumran, originally published in Spanish but thoroughly revised here, which investigate the contributions made by the Qumran manuscripts to the study of the Apocalyptic Tradition. The first three papers collected here are concerned with apocalyptic texts belonging to the Enochic Tradition (Book of Noah, Books of Enoch, Book of Giants) and show how the fragmentary copies found at Qumran have radically altered the way in which we understand them. The next two studies deal with two texts which were

The biblical commentaries from Qumran (the Pesharim) are well known, but students and interested readers often find the voluminous scholarship on the subject daunting and a grasp of their exegeses challenging. In this user-friendly textbook, the reader is introduced to basic and less obvious features of Qumran exegeses. Amply illustrated by examples in English, this book systematically discusses the textual characteristics of the quoted biblical verses; the literary genre of pesher and its comparison to rabbinic midrash; features of sectarian exegesis; the nature of its historical allusions; a

"Purity Texts" is a handbook that gathers the data of the Dead Sea Scrolls on ritual purity and analyzes it systematically as part of a coherent ideology. After a general introduction and an examination of individual texts for the contribution of each to the subject of purity, the book devotes a chapter to each of the impurities discussed in the Scrolls: death, leprosy, bodily discharges and outsiders. In each of these chapters, emphasis is placed on the large amount of congruence of the Qumran texts with each other on the subject of purity and the similarities and differences between the Qumr
