The Dead Sea Scrolls in English
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls between 1947 and 1956 transformed the study of the Bible, early post-biblical Judaism and the beginnings of Christianity. Written in Hebrew and Aramaic, and dating roughly from 200 BC to the mid first-century AD, they afford insight into Palestinian Jewish life and ideology. This revised edition includes 26 newly translated scroll texts, an introduction discussing developments in Qumran scholarship, and an inventory of all the scrolls made available in 1991.
