This volume is concerned with the great Psalms Scroll from cave 11 at Qumran as an example for the reception ("Fortschreibung") of biblical texts and books in early judaism.
After methodological considerations the scroll is examined and reconstructed entirely in its material and textual extent for the first time. Detailed analyses of the text and the structure of this work show that 11QPsᵃ developed from the final redaction of the biblical book of Psalms. In its unique text form and arrangement of Psalms it was composed in a qumranic milieu and functions as a work for a davidic figure.
Ulrich Dahmen, Dr. theol. (1996), University of Bonn, is assistant at the University of Siegen and Privatdozent für Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft at the University of Bonn.
All those interested in the history of the biblical text, in the early reception of the Bible, in the Book of Psalms, in the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as theologians, Old Testament and Qumran specialists.
