Item description for Qumran Prayer and Religious Poetry (Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah) by Bilhah Nitzan...

Qumran Prayer and Religious Poetry represents the first attempt to undertake a systematic, comprehensive study of the liturgical and poetic texts which were discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls from Qumran. The collections of prayers, blessings and hymns indicate that fixed prayers were already customary within Judaism during the period of the Second Temple within sectarian circles. In the light of the prayer texts from Qumran the author conducts a systematic study of Jewish prayer beginning with its biblical traditions, through its development during the Second Temple period, and down to rabbinic prayer. By means of comparative literary analysis, the author is able to elucidate the relationship of the Qumran texts to forms and motifs found in parallel text types from various periods and circles within Judaism. This volume provides the reader with tools for a renewed study of the history of prayer in Judaism in the light of new textual evidence from the Second Temple period.

Reviews - What do customers think about Qumran Prayer and Religious Poetry (Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah)?

Good Treatment of Religous Poetry  Dec 22, 2000
Bilhah Nitzan does an excellent job synthesizing Biblical poetry with the important new finds of the poetry from the Dead Sea Scrolls. The author places the Qumran literature as an necessary link between Old and New Testament poetry. This book is extremely comprehensive in terms of the diversity of poetry analyzed and written about in these three areas. Especially intriguing is the work done with the poetry of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The author points out the differences of Qumran while still fitting them within the Biblical continuum. This is an important work for anyone studying religious poetry or interested in the Biblical studies.
