Proceedings of a Fourth International Symposium on the Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls & Ben Sira
Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah, Vol 73

Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls & Ben Sira, held in Strasbourg on May 29 and

interpretation of the Qumran Scrolls, of the Apocrypha and of the Hebrew Bible.
