Oxford
Commentary
on the
Dead Sea Scrolls

The Oxford Commentary on the Dead Sea Scrolls is a series intended for the scholarly study of the most important non-biblical Dead Sea Scrolls. It aims to provide scholarship of the highest level that is accessible to non-specialists, based on the best digitized images and readings. Each volume will include a synthetic and substantial introduction, followed by a line-by-line commentary on the scrolls. The commentary will provide an English translation, textual notes and thematic discussions of the original Hebrew text of the scrolls.

About

The series is intended for a broad readership of scholars and students who work in the fields of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament Studies, or in other areas of Early Judaism. Published by Oxford University Press, each volume will expound on the religious ideas and themes of the scrolls.
