Summary
The studies in this volume examine the knowledge and ideas about the natural and human world as reflected in the Aramaic texts of Qumran. Their authors were well acquainted with Mesopotamian science and its methods. Two questions guide the individual essays: What knowledge and what methods did these authors adopt from Mesopotamia? And how did they adapt this knowledge to their monotheistic worldview in a way that shaped their identity?
