Studies on the texts of the desert of Judah; v.56

BM175

In a radical re-reading of the known material, both the CD texts available since 1910 and the fragmentary additions of the ten manuscripts found in the caves of Qumran, Wacholder (emeritus Talmud and rabbinics, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion) offers a composite edition of the 12 ancient and medieval manuscripts with notes, a new translation of the Hebrew text, and a commentary on the composite text that questions elements of conventional scholarship and how it applies to historical and systemic questions.
