Chapter Summary

This chapter address the nature and literary characteristics of the document, and the provenance of the text and identity of "the sect". It also addresses the halakhah of the Zadokite Fragments, and the Zadokite Fragments and the construction of the history of the sect reflected in the Qumran Scrolls. The chapter discusses the role of the Zadokite Fragments in reconstructing the history of Judaism and the background of Christianity. It deals with two fundamental issues, the exegesis of specific passages and the overall characterization of the halakhic system of the Zadokite Fragments. The Zadokite Fragments have been fitted, like clay in the hands of the potter, into a variety of reconstructions of the history of the sect. The discovery of the Zadokite Fragments was part of a revolution in the study of the history of ancient Judaism.

Keywords: ancient Judaism; halakhic system; Qumran scrolls; Zadokite Fragments
