The Princeton Theological Seminary Dead Sea Scrolls Project is providing the first critical edition of all the Dead Sea Scrolls which are not copies of books in the Hebrew Bible (the so-called Old Testament) in 10 projected volumes along with 2 concordances. The format of the series is unique; each manuscript is presented with Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek text on the left page with facing English translation on the right. The series intends to be a standard reference work; thus, only probable reconstructions are made and the English translations are as literal as possible avoiding idiomatic renderings. Where a document is witnessed by more than one manuscript, each manuscript is presented separately, often with a critical apparatus. Critical notes help the reader to understand the text, variants, philological subtleties, and the translation. An introduction with selected bibliography precedes each document. The documents are prepared by an international team of over forty scholars with the editor and his assistants providing consistency, especially with regard to the consistent translation of technical terms and use of signs and sigla.Volume 3 contains improved readings of Damascus Document Fragments, Some Works of the Torah , and Related Documents . The Damascus Document Fragments and Some Works of the Torah are two of the most important texts for understanding the origins and early history of the Qumran Community. Those documents, along with the other legal texts which are also included in this volume, also provide some of the earliest sources for understanding the development of Jewish halakah.Survey of the Princeton Theological Seminary DSS Project: Graphic Concordance to the Dead Sea Scrolls.
