Colleagues and former students focus narrowly on areas where Schuller (religious studies, McMaster U., Canada) has made major contributions. Among the topics discussed are aspects of the theological significance of prayers and worship in the Qumran Scrolls, penitential prayer and apocalyptic eschatology in Second Temple Judaism, healing with Psalms, the textual history of the Book of Jeremiah in light of its allusions and implicit quotations in the Qumran Hodayot, the background of the stichometric arrangements of poetry in the Judean Desert Scrolls, and Rebekah's patriarchal prayers.
