The theme of the gathering was the transmission, use, or interpretation of biblical traditions in the Scrolls from the Judean Desert. Of the 56 presentations, 12 appear in this volume, some of them revised significantly. The topics include Josephus' 22-book canon and the Qumran Scrolls, the impact of the Qumran evidence on biblical lower criticism, some experimental considerations on the Genesis Apocryphon, the prayer of Manasseh in 4Q381 and the account of Manasseh in 2 Chronicles 33, how intermarriage defiles the sanctuary, and relations to Gentiles in the Damascus Document and biblical tradition.
