Description: This book contains a startling new theory of the provenance and meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Golb argues that the Scrolls were almost certainly written not by a fringe group in Qumran, but by Jews in Jerusalem who smuggled them out of that city just before the Romans attacked the city. Golb backs up his ground-breaking theory with a careful reading of the texts, an examination of the different handwritings in the Scrolls, the findings of the archaeological excavations, and more.
