The possibility that they might challenge many assumptions about ancient Judaism and the origins of Christianity, coupled with the extremely limited access to the scrolls imposed for many years, only fuelled debate on their meanings. With all the scrolls - more than 800 documents from eleven caves - now finally available in translation, conclusions can at last be drawn as to their authorship and origins, their implications for Christianity and Judaism and their link with the ancient site of Qumran. This timely book, written by three noted scholars in the field, draws together all the evidence and presents the first fully illustrated survey of every major manuscript, from the Copper Scroll, the Community Rule and the Temple Scroll to less well-known scripts such as the Angelic Liturgy and the Reworked Pentateuch.
