Chapter Summary

This chapter develops some of the assumptions underlying "Groningen hypothesis" about the Origins and Early History of the Qumran community, and makes clear the historical consequences that follow from their acceptance. Therefore, it deals with the composition and character of the library from Qumran. It then discusses the hypothesis of Norman Golb who postulates that the scrolls come from different libraries of Jerusalem and that they represent the literature of the whole of the Judaism of the time. After summarizing the contents of the "Groningen hypothesis," the chapter spells out some of the consequences that can be deduced in order to obtain a historical reconstruction of the early history of the community.

Keywords: Groningen hypothesis; Jerusalem; Judaism; Norman Golb; Qumran community
