Serekh Texts

Full Product Description

This book discusses the central rule documents, called "Serek" texts, produced by a pious Jewish community of the Essenes that lived at Qumran by the Dead Sea at the turn of the era. The texts describe the life of a highly ascetic group that had rejected the hellenistic mainstream Jewish culture and had withdrawn into the desert to live a life of perfect obedience to the Torah. The writings of the community open a fascinating window onto the religious life in Palestine at the time of the emergence of early Christianity and rabbinic Judaism. There are few other contemporary Jewish sources in which the life and religious practices of a Jewish group are so vividly and authentically illustrated.

Serekh Texts by Sarianna Metso was published by Continuum in May 2007. The ISBN for Serekh Texts is 9780567040923.
