About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Dead Sea Scrolls, Qumran and the Essenes

Publisher: Yad Ben-Zvi

Binding: Hardcover/Hardback

Book Condition: New


This is the English edition of the volume published in Hebrew in 2010. It deals with the most important archaeological discovery in Israel, and one of the most important anywhere in the world. The finds in Qumran and its vicinity have created a new academic field and have immensely influenced studies in other disciplines: early Jewish literature; the history of the Second Temple Period; the text of the Hebrew Bible; early biblical exegesis; Talmudic literature; early Christianity; the Hebrew language, and more. The discoveries at Qumranâ"a few scrolls that have survived in fairly good condition and thousands of smaller fragmentsâ"have shed new light on all these fields, solving some old questions and raising new ones.In this book written for a general readership, Magen Broshi, former director of the Shrine of the Book at the Israel Museum Jerusalem which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls, traces the discovery and decipherment of these scrolls, reveals what they teach us about the sect that wrote and studied them, and describes the site at Qumran.
