Topics in the Dead Sea Scrolls: Exegesis at Qumran

David Andrew Teeter


This course explores the diverse functions of scripture within the literature of the Dead Sea Scrolls, focusing in particular on the forms and methods of interpretation attested, considered in light of other varieties of interpretation in early Judaism. Sessions will be devoted to reading, translation and discussion of primary sources in Hebrew, as well as to discussion of relevant secondary literature. Two years of Hebrew strongly recommended.
