Qumranica Minora II: Thematic Studies on the Dead Sea Scrolls brings together fourteen previously published studies of Florentino García Martínez on a variety of thematic topics from the Dead Sea Scrolls, including English translations of essays that were hitherto only available in French or Spanish. The studies range from essays on the interpretation of the biblical texts in the Scrolls, to more general studies on topics such as priestly functions in a community without temple, Messianism, magic, wisdom, sonship between the Old and the New Testament, and the “other” in the Dead Sea Scrolls or at Qumran.
Qumranica Minora I: Qumran Origins and Apocalypticism brings together the author’s much discussed articles on the so-called “Groningen Hypothesis” (an hypothesis about the origins of the Qumran Community in relation to the parent Essene movement and Palestinian apocalyptic movements), as well as a selection of his most important essays on Early Jewish and Qumran apocalypticism. The third part of the book consists of surveys of the history of research on the Dead Sea Scrolls. The volume includes English translations of essays that were originally written in Spanish and French.
