Chapter Summary

During a reexamination of the minor biblical scrolls from Cave 1, originally edited in DJD 1 by the great French scholar Dominique Barthélemy in the early fifties, the author looked upon 1Q5, the second copy of Deuteronomy from that cave, and noted that the style of the script on some fragments varies widely from others. These differences have led to the conclusion that the fragments currently assembled under the label 1Q5 are more likely to have been written by different scribes. Barthélemy assembled 50 fragments under the label "1Q5". Compared to more recent editions of biblical scrolls from Qumran this is a relatively large number.
