Abstract 4Q274 1 i addresses the removal of impure individuals from inhabited areas and the repercussions of contact with various types of impure individuals. The text asserts that only lepers need to be excluded from the cities during their unclean period because they cause anything present in a tent with them to become unclean; other unclean individuals should be isolated within the cities. Likewise, 4Q274 1 i implies that the impurity—of those men with a discharge, of those women discharging blood, and of the menstruants during their periods of discharge—spreads when there is a real possibility of physical contact between the discharge and those people or objects to be defiled by it. In contrast, in rabbinic literature, both males and females impure due to discharge and menstruants are deemed impure because of their halakic categorization as unclean people, their impurity is not spread through their discharges.
