About this Item

Since the 1948 discovery of Hebrew manuscripts in a cave in the Judean Desert, many studies have been undertaken to determine the nature and origin of the texts. The author of this fascinating work discusses possible authors of the manuscripts, the problems of translating Hebrew texts, and the theory that these particular manuscripts belong to a category of works known as genuzim, or things hidden away, in this case because they were not considered canonical in Palestine and could not be kept in a traditional library. Seven texts are included intranslation with explanatory notes, offering the reader an opportunity to study the manuscripts closely. Bookseller Inventory # MEDRIDDLE
