Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah, Vol 73
This volume contains 15 contributions presented at a symposium on the
Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls & Ben Sira, held in Strasbourg on May 29 and
30, 2006. The papers address linguistic and philological issues. They seek
to relate the Hebrew texts of the Hellenistic period to earlier and later
traditions. Among the authors are some of the most eminent Hebraists of our
period as well as some younger scholars. The papers throw new light on the
interpretation of the Qumran Scrolls, of the Apocrypha and of the Hebrew Bible.
