Luhot mashlimim. "Temple Scroll, scroll of the Dead Sea Sect. In 1967 Yigael Yadin acquired for the 'Shrine of the Book, ' through the generosity of the Wolfson foundation, a scroll which almost certainly came from the Qumran caves. It is one of the most important of the Qumran finds and has been named the Temple Scroll. The longest scroll hitherto discovered, it measures over 28 ft. (8.6 m. ) in length and consists of 66 columns (of text) . It has been dated to the end of the second century B. C. E. The author of the scroll evidently believed, or wanted his readers to believe, that it was part of the Torah (given by God to Moses) since he always lets God speak in the first person. Furthermore, the Tetragrammaton is always written in full and in the same (square) script as in the scroll, which was the practice of the Qumran scribes only when copying biblical texts. Further research on the Temple Scroll, which culminated in its publication with a detailed commentary in three volumes, confirmed the main conclusions given in the original article above. The suggested date of its composition, the second half of the 2nd century B. C. E. , is confirmed on paleographic, linguistic, syntactical and historical grounds. " (EJ 2008) . From the library of Baruch Bokser. Subjects: Temple scroll Commentaries. Fascimile. Light wear to cloth, otherwise very clean and fresh. Very good condition. (RAB-55-7) 2ndtemple1 SPEC6. (JA).
