The Dead Sea Scrolls Study Edition
Vol. I: 1Q1-4Q273 - Vol. II: 4Q274-11Q31
Edited by Florentino Garcia Martinez and Eibert J.C. Tigchelaar
The Dead Sea Scrolls Study Edition is a practical reference tool to
facilitate access to the Qumran collection of the Dead Sea Scrolls. It
contains newly edited Hebrew and Aramaic transcriptions and English
translations of the non-biblical scrolls on facing pages, arranged by serial
number from Cave 1 to Cave 11.
In addition, it offers a summary of the contents of the biblical scrolls
from Qumran. Each Q-number is provided with a heading which contains the
essential information on the text and selected bibliographical references.
Although unidentified and unclassified fragments have been omitted, and no
snippets of manuscripts have been reproduced, this edition aims to be
complete for the non-biblical scrolls.
The work is primarily intended for classroom use and for use by
specialists from other disciplines who need a reliable compendium to all the
materials found. It is also useful as a companion for those studying the
original manuscripts using the microfiche or CD-ROM editions of the scrolls.

'The authors are to be congratulated for producing a well-conceived and
well-executed work that will be of immense practical value to students and

'These volumes are clearly the standard for students, and they will also
be extremely helpful for specialistsЕa welcome addition to the growing
number of research tools on the texts from Qumran.'

The Dead Sea Scrolls are divided into two
collections. The first collection is the biblical scrolls - pieces of books
found in the Hebrew Bible. The second collection is called 'sectarian
manuscripts', which is all of the non-biblical scrolls. This includes
commentaries on scripture, common books that would have been considered
canonical by the Qumran community, even though they aren't in the Hebrew
canon today (such as the Book of Enoch), and religious documents that were
specific to the Qumran sect, and probably weren't used elsewhere (such as
the Rule of the Community).
Dr. Martin Abegg's database for the Qumran Sectarian Manuscripts provides
nearly all of this second collection of texts (six hundred sixty seven
manuscripts) in the original Hebrew and Aramaic. Each word in the database
is given a tag for the dictionary form of that word, allowing users to
execute a KeyLink look-up on the Dead Sea Scrolls to find the meaning in any
Hebrew or Aramaic lexicon in the user's library. Because most of the Hebrew
and Aramaic lexicons in Libronix Digital Library System are designed for use
with the biblical texts, a special lexicon was also made from Dr. Abegg's
database, providing short definitions for words that are found in the Dead
Sea Scrolls but not found in the Hebrew Bible, or if found in the Hebrew
Bible, are used in a different sense in the Qumran Sectarian Manuscripts.
The QSM database also tags each word with a morphology code to allow users
to search by grammatical feature, or to help the reader interpret the form
of a given word. The morphology tags follow the same format as the
Westminster morphology of the Hebrew Bible, already available for Libronix
DLS; users of the Hebrew Bible will appreciate the consistent interface for

An eminent Dead Sea Scrolls researcher, James C. VanderKam offers a popular,
up-to-date introduction to the scrolls and the ongoing debate that surrounds

of the scrolls texts, the identity, history, and beliefs of the people who
lived in Qumran and collected, wrote, and copied scrolls, and the importance
of the scrolls to biblical studies.
