Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of unincorporated fragments, which reproduces Joseph Baumgarten?s unidentified fragments in Discoveries in the Judaean Desert (DJD) XVIII. The book The New Damascus Document consists of three parts: (1) a composite edition of the twelve ancient and medieval manuscripts with notes; (2) a new translation of the Hebrew text; and (3) a commentary upon the composite text. Of the twelve manuscripts that survive from this work, two of them, the so-called Cairo Genizah copy of the Damascus Document (CD)-A and CD-B transcribed in the 11th and 12th centuries and discovered a century ago, remain the most important documents attesting to the 2,200 or 2,300 year-old composition.

Keywords: Discoveries in the Judaean Desert (DJD); Joseph Baumgarten; The New Damascus Document
