This volume presents the proceedings of an international conference of the same title held at the University of Birmingham in 2007. The contributors are drawn from the ranks of leading international specialists in the field writing alongside promising younger scholars. The volume includes studies on the contribution of the Scrolls to Second Temple Jewish history, the archaeological context, the role of the temple and its priesthood, as well as treatments on selected texts and issues. These proceedings offer a timely and up to date assessment of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the material remains unearthed at Qumran in their wider context and not infrequently challenge prevailing lines of interpretation.

Helen Jacobus has won the Sean Dever Memorial Prize with her contribution to this volume. Commenting on the Dever prize, Professor Carol Meyers of Duke University, North Carolina, said: “The judges thought highly of Helen’s meticulous scholarship and careful presentation of the data in her discussion of the zodiac and its role in Jewish calendars.”

The Dead Sea Scroll Editions series offers all students and scholars of Bible and Second Temple Judaism fresh and comprehensive critical editions of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The series will cover hitherto unpublished or incompletely published Dead Sea Scrolls texts and fragments, and new, up-to-date critical editions of those Dead Sea Scrolls and related texts that need to be re-edited in the light of recently published materials, on the basis of substantially better photographs, or reflecting new reconstructions of manuscripts.
The editions contain introductions, transcriptions complete with critical apparatus, and translations. Notes on the readings and translations will also be featured. Select volumes will include commentary. .
