A survey of every major manuscript, including the Copper Scroll, Community Rule, and Temple Scroll, discussing their discovery, publication, original authorship, and impact on beliefs about the histories of Judaism and Christianity.

Norton Pub
Ever since the first scrolls were found in the Judaean desert in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been the subject of passionate speculation and controversy. The possibility that they might challenge assumptions about ancient Judaism and the origins of Christianity, coupled with the extremely limited access imposed for many years, only fueled debate on their meanings.With all the scrolls now available in translation, conclusions can be drawn as to the authorship and origins, their implications for Christianity and Judaism, and their link with the ancient site of Qumran. This book, written by three noted scholars in the field, draws together all the evidence to present a fully illustrated survey of every major manuscript.With numerous factfiles, reconstructions, scroll photographs, and a wealth of other illustrations, it is the most comprehensive and accessible account available on the Dead Sea Scrolls.
"Details how the scrolls, one of history's great language troves, depict the tumultuous Judean world of 2,000 years ago."—Natural History
