Chapter Summary

The text designated 4Q181 was first published by John Allegro, without title, more than forty years ago. Written in Herodian hand the manuscript has survived only in three fragments, two legible ones of medium size and one tiny piece with only one letter visible. Previous research has been interested in this text mainly to clarify its relationship to 4Q180, due to the close similarity between 4Q181 2 1-4 and 4Q180 1 5, 8-9. Józef Milik's approach misrepresented the two texts, and it also blurred the distinctive character of 4Q181: since 4Q180 attracted most attention 4Q181 was somewhat neglected. In this chapter, the author offers a fresh examination of 4Q181 as a text in its own right. Such an updated study provides an opportunity to re-edit the text and to consider once more the arguments in favour of separating 4Q180 and 4Q181.
