The People of the Dead Sea Scrolls

Their Writings, Beliefs and Practices

Julio Trebolle Barrera and Florentino García Martínez

This book, written jointly by two distinguished Qumran scholars, attempts to provide answers to some important questions that have been discussed recently in media reports on the Dead Sea Scrolls, such as: have certain manuscripts been suppressed?; do the manuscripts question substantial aspects of the Jewish and Christian traditions?; do the roots of Early Christianity derive from the Essene movement?; and more.
This volume offers solid and up-to-date information on the literary heritage, the social organization and the religious beliefs of the Qumran community and its links with Early Christianity. It gives the reader an opportunity to look behind the scenes of the research of the Dead Sea texts and the ongoing scholarly debate on the origins of the Essene movement and the Qumran sect.

Glossary and Index of Technical Terms to Volumes I-VII and to the Supplement, Fascicules 1-6

Series:

Jos van Lent and Hakeem-Uddeen Qureshi

As part of the series of Indexes to The Encyclopaedia of Islam which serve to make this enormous body of information easily accessible, the Glossary and Index treats the technical terms in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and other languages or dialects of the Islamic world. As an index, it is of immeasurable importance, in particular for the many terms which are not given an entry but are discussed in the course of an article; and as a glossary it is an invaluable source of information for both non-specialists, who is given an insight into the varied and rich vocabulary of Islam, and the specialist, who may discover surprising new contexts in which a term is used. Highly recommended for use with The Encyclopaedia of Islam.

Jacoby

On his death, Felix Jacoby left uncompleted the original plan for his massive and now standard compilation: Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker. Not only was he unable to complete his commentary to Volume III C, but no parts of three whole sections foreseen in the original plan were ever published.
Jacoby did however leave behind a considerable Nachlass of more than 1200 pages of notes and outlines relating to his commentary to FGrHist Volume III C. Charles Fornara has undertaken the task of publishing in this fascicle Jacoby's text (sometimes with minor modifications), making additions of his own (between brackets). In writing this commentary Professor Fornara has tried to follow the stylistic conventions which Jacoby preferred and has done his best to emulate his general approach. The work deals with a part of the Graeco-Egyptian sources (Nos. 608a-608).

i Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker is available in print, and now also online as part of the online reference work Jacoby Online. Please click here for more details.

Index of Subjects to Volumes I-VII and to the Supplement, Fasc. 1-6/Index des matières des tomes I-VII et du supplément, livr. 1-6

Series:

Peri Bearman

To accompany the existing Index (of Persons), E.J. Brill has prepared an Index of Subjects, intended as an extra aid when using the Encyclopaedia of Islam. The sheer amount of information contained in the EI, and the fact that the entries are given in their Arabic form, require a good deal of searching on the part of the user, which the Index (of Persons) can only partially alleviate.
The Index of Subjects aims to lighten the user's work by providing a guide to the EI in the form of a thesaurus. Entries are given in English and French and are followed by the titles of the relevant EI-articles, as well as cross-references to articles which are not primarily about that subject, but include information which could be useful.
The student and scholar of Islam are hereby given a boost in unravelling the enormous richness of The Encyclopaedia of Islam.

Index of Proper Names to Volumes I-VII and to the Supplement, Fasc. 1-6./Index des noms propres des Tomes I-VII et du supplément, livr. 1-6

Series:

E.J. van Donzel

It is obvious that the contents of a publication such as the Encyclopaedia of Islam are by far richer than might appear from the title of the articles alone. Thus, all who work in the field of Islamic studies will welcome the appearance of the new cumulative index of proper names to volumes I - VII of the Encyclopaedia of Islam.
