Revealing insights on the religious views of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Dead Sea Scrolls have profoundly changed the way we think about the Bible. But what is the religion found in the Scrolls themselves? This book provides a much-needed assessment of several major aspects of the religion of the Dead Sea Scrolls in light of recent publications. Eight leading experts explore the concept of divinity in the Scrolls, the Scrolls relation to important halakic issues, the question of Hellenistic influence in the Scrolls, and the apocalypticism and messianism specific to the Scrolls.

"An important milestone in Dead Sea Scrolls studies. Here we have the first serious attempt, since the general release of all the unpublished fragments in 1991, to consider in a comprehensive way the various religious perspectives to be found in the whole body of evidence or exemplary parts of it. Though there is much more yet to be said on the topics raised here, and indeed on others not included, in many ways these essays will set the agenda for future discussion."
