Chapter Summary

One of the texts that has received a great attention in terms of its textual history is the Community Rule as attested particularly in the well preserved copy from Cave 1 and more recently published ten Cave 4 manuscripts of the text. Whereas much of the early scholarly debate about the literary growth of S was chiefly concerned with determining which manuscripts represents the earlier text, author proposes that the quest for the beginning of the growth of this textual tradition is to be found in shared material found across the manuscript spectrum. The chapter develops the approach further beyond the data presented by individual S manuscripts and includes the evidence of the Damascus Document in as much as it relates directly to the literary development of the Community Rule. The most extensive point of contact between D and S is similarity and close inter-textual relationship between the penal codes.

Keywords: Community Rule; Damascus Document; penal codes; S manuscripts; shared tradition; textual tradition
