Chapter Summary

When the author presented the core of what later became known as the Groningen Hypothesis at a symposium of Spanish Biblical Scholars in Crdoba in 1986,1 only the first seven volumes of the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert (DJD) Series had been published. The seven largest and most well preserved manuscripts from Cave 1 had been available for a long time, and many other fragments from Cave 4 were also known in preliminary form. The core of the Groningen Hypothesis was the consideration of the group who collected the manuscripts as a splinter group or offshoot from a parent group, taking seriously the indications of the beginning of the Damascus Document and the indications of some other manuscripts which mention the Teacher, like the Pesher Habakkuk.

Keywords: Discoveries in the Judaean Desert (DJD); Groningen Hypothesis; Spanish biblical scholars
