About this Item

446, illus., maps, glossary, endnotes, selected bibliography, index, some soiling and wear to DJ. The author challenges those who argue that the Dead Sea Scrolls belonged to a small, desert-dwelling fringe sect; instead, he maintains that the scrolls must have been the work of many groups in ancient Judaism, kept in libraries in Jerusalem and smuggled out of the capital just before the Romans attacked in A.D. 70.
