Chapter Summary

Now, 26 years after this second Colloquium Biblicum Lovaniensis dedicated to Qumran, the focus has returned once more to the Dead Sea Scrolls. The study of the Dead Sea Scrolls has become an independent academic discipline and, as such, is well provided with tools for research, such as bibliographies, encyclopaedias, and a whole host of general surveys published on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the discoveries. This chapter explains the reasons to choose “Wisdom and Apocalypticism in the DSS and the Biblical Tradition” as the topic for the 51st Colloquium, and then deals with a single problem related to this topic. It also presents one point of possible relationship between wisdom and apocalypticism. Qumran wisdom is not worldly and heavenly wisdom, it is revealed wisdom, and thus thoroughly heavenly.

Keywords: Apocalypticism; Biblical Tradition; Colloquium Biblicum Lovaniensis; Dead Sea Scrolls; heavenly; Qumran wisdom; revealed wisdom; worldly
