Scribes and Scrolls At Qumran

Sidnie White Crawford

$85.00

Paperback
:

The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls altered our understanding of the development of the biblical text, the history and literature of Second Temple Judaism, and the thought of the early Christian community. Questions continue to surround the relation­ship between the caves in which the scrolls were found and the nearby settlement at Khirbet Qumran.

In Scribes and Scrolls at Qumran Sidnie White Crawford combines those conclusions of the first generation of scrolls scholars that have withstood the test of time, new insights that have emerged since the complete publication of the scrolls corpus, and the much more complete archaeological picture that we now have of Khirbet Qumran. The result is a new synthesis of text and archaeology that yields a convincing history of and purpose for the Qumran settlement and its associated caves.
