This is a very important volume which has been well produced by both the editors and the publishers. It puts into the public domain a number of legal compositions which, alongside other works of a broadly similar nature, are increasingly seen as vital for our understanding of the identity, origins and nature of the group behind the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls ... This addition to the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series will rightly be welcomed by all engaged in Dead Sea Scrolls study, as well as by others with wider research interests in Jewish law. Journal of Semitic Studies An important and interesting collection of texts. Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
