This series is the first critical and comprehensive edition of all the texts and English translations of the non-biblical Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Dead Sea Scrolls represent the remains of an ancient Jewish library which antedates 68 C.E. It is the most significant discovery of biblically related ancient manuscripts, and represents more than 600 ancient Jewish documents. This series is the definitive collection of the Dead Sea Scrolls and will conclude with a volume on the Biblical Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, and a concordance to the collection. Thirty-eight scholars from Canada, Germany, Israel, the United States, and other countries serve as subeditors in the series.
The first volume contains the first improved edition of 1QS with a critical apparatus, all the fragments of the Rule of the Community found in Caves IV and V a literal translation to each of these, which is prepared so that the Hebrew is on the left page and the translation on the right. Critical notes help the scholar understand the text, the variants, philological subtleties, and explain the translations. Documents related to the Rule of the Community are olso contained in the first volume of this series.
