"An examination of the settlement of Qumran to ascertain itsprecise connection with the Essenes and the Dead Sea Scrolls... Re-examines the concept of Qumran as an Essene monastery where the Scrolls were written and proposes alternative functions for Qumran and possible authors of the Scrolls. This examination extends over the whole Dead Sea area with particular emphasis on its climate, agricultural activity and mineral wealth. The ancient trade routes by land and sea are traced and their importance to Qumran is considered." - from dust jacket. Clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear.
