An impressive array of international scholars here provides fresh insights into themes related to Jewish civilization in the late Second Temple period and considers the role that should be assigned to the Qumran scrolls. Part I focuses on the history, society and literature of the Judaism of this period. Part II considers the light shed by the Qumran scrolls on this so-called dark age in the history of Judaism. A progress report on the scrolls is followed by chapters on their various implications.
