Overview

His A Guide to the Dead Sea Scrolls and Related Literature starts by explaining the conventional system of abbreviations for the Scrolls. Then it helpfully lists specifically where readers can find each of the scrolls and fragmentary texts from the eleven caves of Qumran and all the related sites. Fitzmyer supplies information on tools of study helpful for scholars - concordances, dictionaries, translations, outlines of longer texts, and more - and briefly indications electronic resources for the study of the Dead Sea Scrolls. This winning guide makes navigating the sprawl of scrolls and information much more straightforward.
