Item description for Qumran and Apocalyptic: Studies on the Aramaic Textx from Qumran (Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah) by F. Garcia Martinez & Florentino Garcia Martinez...
The present volume contains a selection of studies on the Aramaic texts from Qumran, originally published in Spanish but thoroughly revised here, which investigate the contributions made by the Qumran manuscripts to the study of the Apocalyptic Tradition. The first three papers collected here are concerned with apocalyptic texts belonging to the Enochic Tradition (Book of Noah, Books of Enoch, Book of Giants) and show how the fragmentary copies found at Qumran have radically altered the way in which we understand them. The next two studies deal with two texts which were previously unknown and which stem from the Danielic Tradition (4QPrNab, 4QpsDan Ar); they both notably enrich our knowledge of the traditions of Daniel. The last two studies discuss two Qumranic apocalypses (4Q246, 11QNJ) which reveal the richness and the diversity of the theological conceptions circulating within the Apocalyptic Tradition. The book offers a most up-to-date survey of research on these manuscripts and makes a fresh contribution to the understanding of Qumran and of the Apocalyptic Tradition.

GREED AND SHAME! Nov 3, 1999
Although I've studied the DSS for some years now (25 years) I do have problem's with the publisher's and writer's who go into "a little more detail" on the subject that I already know and studied. To charge such very high prices for the hardcover as well as the paperback versions of these books purely for greed making it very hard for frist time student's to purchase these books for themselve's. I've had alot of mail from them asking "why????". I only can tell them that the writer, publishers are only interested in filling their "pockets" with alot money on a subject that should be available to them and also the public for a reasonable price. Shame on them for keeping these "must read" documents out of their reach for greed. M.A. BREGAN- Professor of theology.
