Chapter Summary

This appendix section of this book titled From Qumran to the Yaḥad contains a table of comparision of the penal codes. The penal code is particularly instructive about how widely dispersed the Rule texts were, as we find overlapping codes in Serekh ha-Yaḥad (S), Damascus Document (D) and 4QMiscellaneous Rules, the latter containing both S- and D-related material. The continuity and discontinuity between these Rules suggest that they were appropriated in various settings and that they diverged accordingly.

Keywords: Damascus Document; penal codes; Qumran; Rule text; Yaḥad
