Certainly, from the very start, albeit with some significant exclusions, practitioners in this field of research continues still today. The perception of the Scrolls found in the Qumran caves has reached its present state through a long and intricate process, heavily influenced at important junctures by the particular positions of specific scholars. Moreover, the close correlation of the Scrolls with the final shaping of Judaism and burgeoning Christianity elicited different stresses on various aspects of the Qumran corpus. The changes that Qumranic scholarship relayed in more detail in the respective chapters of the present volume. It offers a moment of retrospection and reflection on the road already traversed, and highlights the pitfalls to be avoided and the direction to be taken in the future.
