A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Since the discovery of the Cave 4 versions of The Community Rule (Serekh ha-Yahad or S), scholars have been perplexed about its complex textual history. This important charter material for the Dead Sea Scrolls authors appears in alternate versions-ones with contradictory legal prescriptions and opposing self-references-but exhibits no clear order of chronological development. Benefitting from the entire Qumran library now available to us, this book offers a new, broader model for reading S that better accounts for the long and diverse history behind the text. The resulting paradigm challenges the Qumrancentric lens through which many read the sectarian texts and offers a fresh way of thinking about sectarian community formation among the authors of the Scrolls.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Since the discovery of the Cave 4 versions of "The Community Rule" (Serekh ha-Yaad or S), scholars have been perplexed about its complex textual history. This important charter material for the "Dead Sea Scrolls"' authors appears in alternate versions - ones with contradictory legal prescriptions and opposing self-references - but exhibits no clear order of chronological development. Benefitting from the entire Qumran library now available to us, this book offers a new, broader model for reading "S" that better accounts for the long and diverse history behind the text. The resulting paradigm challenges the Qumrancentric lens through which many read the 'sectarian texts' and offers a fresh way of thinking about sectarian community formation among the authors of the Scrolls.

Critique:

'It presents a viable perspective on the development of the rule texts and of the communities behind them, and is therefore definitely worthy of further study.' H. Debel, Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses
