Chapter Summary

This index of The Book of Daniel: Composition and Reception presents a list of Dead Sea scrolls. The book focuses on sources found among the Qumran caves in which the Danielic and Enoehic apocalyptic traditions overlap, and considers what these signify concerning their tradition-historical relationship to one another. More specifically, it is to be asked whether any of these materials are thought to presuppose knowledge of the book of Daniel. If so, then the form of apocalyptic traditions they contain with confidence be thought to represent a subsequent development inspired by previously composed works of presumably independent provenance. The book considers these pseudo-Danielic and Giants materials that allow a brief analysis of those portions of Daniel and Enoch that are tradition-historically similar, but not extant among the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Keywords: Book of Daniel; Enoehic apocalyptic traditions; Qumran caves
