The Dead Sea Scrolls enrich many areas of biblical research, as well as the study of ancient and rabbinic Judasim, early Christian and other ancient literatures, languages, and cultures. With nearly all Dead Sea Scrolls published, it is now time to integrate the Dead Sea Scrolls fully into the various disciplines that benefit from them. This two-volume collection of essays answers this need. It represents the proceedings of a conference jointly organized by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the University of Vienna in Vienna on February 11–14, 2008.
Armin Lange, Dr. theol. (1995), University of Münster, is Professor for Second Temple Judaism at the University of Vienna and a member of the international team editing the Dead Sea Scrolls. He has recently published the first volume of his
Handbuch der Textfunde vom Toten Meer (Mohr Siebeck 2009).
Emanuel Tov, Ph.D. (1974) in Biblical Studies, Hebrew University, is J.L. Magnes Professor of Bible at the Hebrew University and the former Editor-in-Chief of the Dead Sea Scrolls Publication Project. He has published several books on textual criticism and on the Scrolls.
Matthias Weigold is a member of the research project "The Meaning of Ancient Jewish Quotations and Allusions for the Textual History of the Hebrew Bible" at Vienna University.
