      Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah, 54

      "This monograph is written in the form of a handbook on the scribal
      features of the texts found in the Judean Desert (the Dead Sea Scrolls).
      It deals in detail with the material, shape, and preparation of the
      scrolls; scribes and scribal activity; scripts, writing conventions,
      errors and their correction, scribal signs; scribal traditions;
      differences between different types of scrolls (e.g., biblical and
      non-biblical scrolls), the possible existence of scribal schools, such
      as that at Qumran. In most categories, the analysis is meant to be
      exhaustive. The detailed analysis is accompanied by tens of tables as
      well as annotated illustrations and charts of scribal signs. The
      findings have major implications for the study of the scrolls and the
      understanding of their relationship to scribal traditions in Israel and
      elsewhere."
