Chapter Summary

This chapter offers a summary to provide the current state of affair in the research of the female presence at the Qumran site, by comparing it to other sites in the Dead Sea area and further inland. The study of gender, a popular topic today across academic and non-academic fora, has clearly been addressed in the context of Qumran studies. The chapter summarizes the topic of gender and Qumran, in a very simplistic way, reducing a truly complex issue to a very basic model. It also summarizes the data we have with regard to the cemetery, in particular aspects that relate directly to matters of gender. The Qumran piece is far more modest than the example from Rome, being made of linen, and clearly represents the more common type regionally as well as in other areas of the Mediterranean.

Keywords: cemetery; female presence; gender; Qumran
