About this title
A compelling new interpretation of the origin & meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Golb fundamentally challenges those who argue that the writings discovered at Qumran belonged to a small, desert-dwelling fringe sect. Instead, he shows why the scrolls must have been the work of many groups in ancient Judaism, kept in libraries in Jerusalem & smuggled out of the capital just before the Romans attacked in A.D. 70. He describes the scrolls' rich diversity of ideas, & offers a new interpretation of their significance for the evolution of both Judaism & Christianity. maps & illustrations.About the Author:
Norman Golb has achieved worldwide renown through his manuscript discoveries and historical writings. A prolific author and twice a Guggenheim Fellow, he is the first holder of the Rosenberger Chair in Jewish History and Civilization at the University of Chicago and a voting member of its celebrated Oriental Institute.
