This text is a comprehensive English translation of the non-biblical Qumran scrolls. It presents a collection of 200 of the total 625 manuscripts. Those manuscripts omitted are either in such a fragmentary condition that translation would be meaningless, or are sufficiently modest in size that translation of them would add very little. The text contains an extensive preface outlining the origin of the manuscripts and the aims of the translation. This is followed by an introduction and the English translation of the texts. Concluding with a list of all manuscripts discovered at Qumran, this list should be a useful reference tool.
