Description

In 1947, in caves located outside Qumran, near to the Dead Sea, a group of Bedouins discovered rolls of leather covered in signs. These turned out to be a number of passages of the Old Testament, apocryphal biblical texts and literature produced by a religious group that had inhabited the area of Qumran: the Essenians. These manuscripts are invaluable as they give us a more authentic view of the Bible and the Jewish world Jesus lived in. This work first of all details the general context in which the Essenians of Qumran lived. Epigraphic and philological perspectives then reveal the work undertaken to decipher and investigate the manuscripts and a deepening of the results with regards to religious, linguistic, scientific and technical knowledge. Lastly ideological and archaeological insight aims to offer understanding of how and according to what rules Essenian daily life was organised, what differentiated them from other forms of Judaism at the time and the influence that the leading figures in their community could exert on religious thought. The involvement of some of the most eminent world specialists in the field and a rich iconography drawn from often unseen sources by researchers make this an essential work.
