The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the Judaean desert between 1947 and 1956 transformed our understanding of the Hebrew Bible, early Judaism and the origins of Christianity. These extraordinary manuscripts appear to have been hidden in the caves at Quumran by members of the Essene community, a Jewish sect in existence before and during the time of Jesus. Some sixty years after the Scrolls' first discovery, this revised and much expanded edition of The Dead Sea Scrolls in English crowns a lifetime of research by the great Qumran scholar Geza Vermes. As well as superb translations of all non-biblical texts sufficiently well preserved to be rendered into English, there are also a number of previously unpublished texts, and a new preface. Since its first publication in 1962, The Dead Sea Scrolls in English has established itself as the standard English translation of the non-Biblical Qumran Scrolls and as giving an astonishing insight to the organization, customs, history and beliefs of the community responsible for them. This seventh edition will contain new material, together with extensive new introductory material and notes.

"The manuscripts found in the Qumran caves, dating from about 200 BC to AD 70, are associated with the Essene sect described by several classical authors. Yet despite their immense importance, Geza Vermes argues, scholarly restrictive practices were responsible for 'the academic scandal par excellence of the twentieth century', which until recently kept many key documents hidden from public view." "The Dead Sea Scrolls in English provides reliable, direct access to these fascinating documents. Established as the standard English version of the non-biblical material, is now in its fourth edition and has been extensively expanded and updated to include twenty-six newly translated scroll texts, a recent introduction discussing development in Qumran scholarship and, for the first time a full inventory of all the scrolls made available in 1991. Introductory chapters explain the background and outline the history, customs and beliefs of the sectarian community as well as the significance of their writings. The Dead Sea Scrolls in English acts as an authoritative guide for scholar students and all those interested in ancient Judaism and nascent Christianity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The so-called Genesis Apocryphon (1Q20) from Qumran Cave 1 has suffered from decades of neglect, due in large part to its poor state of preservation. As part of a resurgent scholarly interest in the Apocryphon, and its prominent position among the Aramaic Dead Sea Scrolls, this volume presents a fresh transcription, translation, and exstenive textual notes drawing on close study of the original manuscript, all available photographs, and previous publications. In addition, a detailed analysis of columns 13-15 and their relation to the oft-cited parallel in the Book of Jubilees reveals a number of ways in which the two works differ, thereby highlighting several distinctive features of the Genesis Apocryphon. The result is a reliable text edition and a fuller understanding of the message conveyed by this fragmentary but fascinating retelling of Genesis.

The Penguin edition of Dr Vermes' The Dead Sea Scrolls in English must now be one of the most widely read books on the Qumran discoveries, containing as it does an attractive translation of the texts and comments on them. This companion volume, unique of its kind, takes a wider view and is the best available account of the background to the Dead Sea Scrolls and the modern discussions of their interpretation. Dr Vermes treats the finds in the Judaean desert, the authenticity and dating of the scrolls, the Qumran library, the life and institutions of the sects, the identification of the Qumran community, the group's history, its religious ideas and ideals, and the impact of the scrolls on biblical studies. The ample bibliographical material, updated for this edition, and the suggestions for reading specific texts help to make this a marvellous guidebook. Brings us up to date on the study of the Dead Sea Scrolls, taking its place at the head of the line of introductions to the subject ... Students will be grateful for the interesting way in which issues are laid forth, a classic of elegant exposition of scholarly problems' (Jacob Neusner, in Journal of the American Academy of Religion). 'Although the spate of publications on the Dead Sea Scrolls has been unending, there have been few works which one could unhesitatingly recommend as providing a comprehensive and reliable guide to their significance ... Dr Geza Vermes, who has been actively engaged in the study of the Scrolls since their discovery and is already well-known for his excellent translation of them, has admirably met this need in his The Dead Sea Scrolls. Qumran in Perspective. The volume is written at the level of the educated non-specialist, and the text is uncluttered by footnotes. But the author has appended to each chapter a series of notes and a selective bibliography which will be of considerable value to the serious student and the professional scholar by directing him instantly to the most important works on each of the subjects covered' (Michael Knibb in The Expository Times).

Purity Texts is a handbook that gathers the data of the Dead Sea Scrolls on ritual purity and analyzes it systematically as part of a coherent ideology. After a general introduction and an examination of individual texts for the contribution of each to the subject of purity, the book devotes a chapter to each of the impurities discussed in the Scrolls: death, leprosy, bodily discharges and outsiders. In each of these chapters, emphasis is placed on the large amount of congruence of the Qumran texts with each other on the subject of purity and the similarities and differences between the Qumran texts and other sources of ancient Judaism. The contributors to the Companion to the Qumran Scrolls series take account of all relevant and recently published texts and provide extensive bibliographies. The books in the series are authoritatively written in accessible language and are ideal for students and non-specialist scholars. Companion to the Qumran Scrolls, volume 5
