Very erudite book, chunks of which will go over the head of those who are not more deeply immersed in biblical studies. The wrangling and academic infighting sequences are more compelling and gripping, and more readily understandable. Wilson does make a game effort to try to place the contents of the Dead Sea Scrolls in context, but I'm not sure how much patience he has for the average reader. The appendix to this edition contains a series of letters that's essentially a "flame war" between a book reviewer and Wilson, and seems to be a pretty petty addition to the book. ( )

LOS ROYOS DEL MAR MUERTO

En la primavera de 1947 un pastorcillo beduino hizo un descubrimiento que iba a cambiar de raíz la visión que hasta entonces se había tenido de los escritos bíblicos: en la gruta de un acantilado, a las orillas del Mar Muerto, encontró los famosos rollos que habrían de llamar la atención mundial y obligar a un nuevo examen de los textos, a la luz de ese insólito material que parecía llegado de un mundo extinguido.

El escritor norteamericano Edmund Wilson hizo algunos viajes al lugar mismo de los hechos y registró, sintetizándolas magistralmente, las discusiones alrededor de los rollos del Mar Muerto. Wilson proporciona en este volumen un panorama completo de los estudios bíblicos: su proverbial erudición, la fluidez de su estilo y el sentido del humor están presentes aquí como en todos sus demás libros. Los rollos del Mar Muerto, sin embargo, destaca en el conjunto de su obra por la sagacidad apasionada con la que Wilson aborda desde el inicio su tema. Además de libro erudito, es una notable lección de periodismo; concebido originalmente como un reportaje que se publicó por entregas, fue tomando paulatinamente la forma de un tratado sobre los grandes temas bíblicos.

The author states in his Acknowledgements that this is a somewhat abridged essay of one that appeared in the "New Yorker" magazine.

1The Metropolitan Samuel: how the manuscripts were found and a brief account of the political changes up to 1947 and the end of the British mandate.

2 The Essene Order: historical background and strong suggestion that site linked to the Essene order.

3 The Monastery: description of physical terrain and pen portrait of Pere Roland de Vaux.

4 The Teacher of Righteousness: a speculative digression (my view only)

5 What would Renan have said?: differing interpretations of the same material...a return to the Metropolitan Samuel who bought the first lot of scrolls and attempts by General Yigael Yadin (son of Prof. Sukenik) to buy the scrolls.

I have since learned that there is considerable disagreement as to the interpretation of these scrolls and to the nature of the archaeological evidence ( a monastery, fort, country house?).

Written within a decade of the scrolls being traded this account gives an initial historical background and some indication of the national tensions which hinder (and probably still do) serious academic research. There is passing reference to important trends in Jewish religious thought at the time of fledgling Christianity.

Probably this book would appeal to someone looking for a quick overview of a subject prior to further in-depth study.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Jan 2015: have just completed a reread and found that there is more information here than I first realised. I particularly interested to read how much controversy may be caused in academic circles by those holding opposing opinions and the resulting acrimony which I find disappointing in those I would consider involved in serious scientific research.

NO OF PAGES: 121 SUB CAT I: Dead Sea Scrolls SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Edmund Wilson, brilliant author and critic, describes the most exciting manuscript find of our time in a lucid account of the origin, discovery, and implications of the ancient Dead Sea scrolls, the first of which were found by Bedouin boys early in 1947. The significance of this dramatic discovery and its meaning to the history of Christianity and Judaism, and its relevance to modern Biblical research, is recounted in this absorbing narrative. The author visited the Dead Sea site and writes of scrolls and scholars with warmth and feeling, telling about the discovery of the scrolls, the environment, historical background, and the personalities involved. He traces the precarious journey of the scrolls from the hands of the Bedouin boys to the Syrian Metropolitan Samuel at the Monastery of St. Mark in Old Jerusalem. The Metropolitan purchased half the Hebrew manuscripts and brought them to the attention of interested scholars. The rest of the manuscripts were purchased by Professor Sukenik of the Hebrew University in New Jerusalem. It was a spectacular find - the oldest Biblical manuscripts yet known - which included a complete copy of the book of Isaiah. One of the scrolls contained a Manual of Discipline evidently used by the Essenes, a pre-Christian monastic order, whose monastery has recently been excavated near the cave where the scrolls were found. Other caves were explored, and there has come to light what is apparently a whole library of the literature of the religious movement to which the Essenes belonged - a literature which in some respects corresponds so closely with the Gospels and the Pauline Epistles that the latter are now thought to derive from it.NOTES: Donated by Gary and Angie Springer.

Wilson focuses on the discovery and processing of the scrolls found in 1947 in caves near the Dead Sea. The content of the scrolls is given more cursory coverage, but the general thrust is conveyed. They were attributed to the Essene sect, whose presence in the region spanned from around the last third of 200 B.C. until at least 68 A.D. The theology evinced by the scrolls is similar to that of late apocryphal documents and also Persian theology, which, according to Wilson, "for a time gave Christianity some fairly severe competition." The principal elements of thought were: (1) the Two Ways (Darkness and Light); (2) Last Judgment at the end of time; (3) use of baptism; and (4) sacred repast in which bread and wine attain ritual significance. The scrolls also describe a "Teacher of Righteousness" who preaches sentiments later duplicated in the Gospels and who is persecuted and sentenced to die by an evil ruler.

Wilson notes that reaction to the translation of the scrolls was not favorable: Jews didn't like the idea that a powerful sect had "grown up inside Judaism but had nothing to do with Judaism." Christians were reluctant to recognize that the characteristic doctrines of Christianity as well as the outlines of [a Savior's] personal history were developed within a dissident branch of Judaism well before Jesus was even born.

Wilson's book was published in 1959. It will be interesting, when I go to the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit later this month, to see how the response to the revelation of the scrolls has evolved over time.

ADDENDUM: Postscript after visiting the exhibit in San Diego:

What a surprise! There were some terrific photographs of Israel, and in particular the Dead Sea region. There were the scroll segments, there were the translations, and there were some pots and shards. What did they mean? Where was the controversy? If one hadn't previously absorbed the message that museums collaborate in the creation (or re-creation) of history and memory, the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit brings it on home. A feast for postmodernist deconstructionists.
