This series provides critical editions of the Dead Sea Scrolls which are not copies of books in the Hebrew Bible with English translations. This supplemental volume offers the editiones principes of six hitherto unstudied manuscripts from the Judaean desert containing texts from the Torah (Leviticus, Deuteronomy), Prophets (Jeremiah), and Writings (Daniel).
The Princeton Theological Seminary Dead Sea Scrolls Project is providing the first critical edition of all the Dead Sea Scrolls which are not copies of books in the Hebrew Bible (the so-called »Old Testament«) in more than ten volumes, along with two concordances, and supplemental volumes. The format of the series is unique; each manuscript is presented with Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek text on the left page and the English translation facing it on the right. The series intends to be a standard reference work; thus, only probable reconstructions are made and the English translations are as literal as possible, avoiding idiomatic renderings. Where a document is witnessed by more than one manuscript, each manuscript is presented separately. Critical notes help the reader to understand the text, variants, philological subtleties, and the translation. An introduction with selected bibliography precedes each document. The documents are prepared by an international team of over fifty scholars with the editors and their assistants providing consistency.
This supplemental volume to the Princeton Dead Sea Scrolls Project offers the editiones principes of six hitherto unstudied manuscripts from the Judaean desert containing texts from the Torah (Leviticus, Deuteronomy), Prophets (Jeremiah), and Writings (Daniel). Five of the manuscripts came into the possession of Azusa Pacific University and a sixth was donated to the Foundation on Judaism and Christian Origins. In this volume the editors describe each manuscript in codicological and textual detail, locating it in the existing Dead Sea Scrolls inventory. Photographs of the manuscripts are provided for comparison with the transcriptions and descriptions. This edition includes extended reviews of particular textual readings inscribed in these manuscripts as they resonated through the Wirkungsgeschichte of the respective biblical passages.
