Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of sources from Hebrew Bible, dead sea scrolls, Jewish hellenistic sources and rabbinic literature that are mentioned in the book Studies in Josephus and the Varieties of Ancient Judaism: Louis H. Feldman Jubilee Volume. Josephus’ comments on the ‘philosophies’ prevalent among ancient Jews have been subject to much criticism. Since the discovery of the Qumran scrolls many scholars have been tempted to identify Josephus’ Essenes with the community that produced the sectarian documents found at Qumran. These scholars have wondered whether we should now correct Josephus, now identified as a less reliable external witness, in the light of the supposedly internal evidence, now newly available from the group.

Keywords: dead sea scrolls; Josephus; rabbinic literature
