Product Description

The first part of this softcover book presents a survey by Hanan Eshel of the history of the discovery of the scrolls and the escavations at Khirbet Qumran and its environs. This is followed by a discussion of the exhibition's themes: the concept of time; shelter; morning prayers; livelihood and handicrafts; purity; the communal meal; study and writing; and evenings and the Sabbath. The third and final part of the catalogue descibes a day in the life of a sect member, Hananiah Nothos - a story by Magen Broshi.
