The Biblical Qumran Scrolls

Transcriptions and Textual Variants

Series:

Editor: Eugene Ulrich
The Biblical Qumran Scrolls presents all the Hebrew biblical manuscripts recovered from the eleven caves at Qumran. It provides a transcription of each identifiable fragment in consecutive biblical order together with the textual variants it contains. These manuscripts antedate by a millennium the previously available Hebrew manuscripts. They are the oldest, the best, and the most authentic witnesses to the texts of the Scriptures as they circulated in Jerusalem and surrounding regions at the time of the birth of Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism. The purpose is to collect in a single volume all the biblical editions originally published in a wide variety of books and articles.

Review Quotes

" Ces quelques remarques, à la suite d’un rapide survol, veulent simplement être utiles pour une réédition du livre qui est appelé à rendre de grands services aux biblistes qui trouveront là l’essentiel de la documentation dispersée dans les éditions et d’autres études, rassemblée par un spécialiste des manuscrits bibliques, pour en avoir édité le plus grand nombre. On lui sera très reconnaissant d’avoir pris la patience d’éditer ce magnifique ouvrage."
Émile Puech (researcher with the Laboratoire des Études sémitiques anciennes at the Collège de France and board member of the 'Revue de Qumran' journal.)
