"Hanan Eshel has rendered a service to scholarship by pulling together all the historical references in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Many of the passages in question are highly fragmentary or otherwise controversial. Eshel is at his best in detecting historical allusions in fragmentary texts. This book will be grist for the mills of scholarship for years to come."
James C. VanderKam
University of Notre Dame
"Though reporting history does not happen very often in the Dead Sea Scrolls, they do at times reflect what was happening in the larger world of their time. Hanan Eshel, both a scrolls scholar and an expert archaeologist, has assembled and analyzed in comprehensive fashion a series of texts in which the authors offer their perspective on events involving the Hasmonean rulers. The book, happily now available in an updated English version, is clear, compelling, and enlightening."
Lawrence H. Schiffman
New York University
"Eshel's masterful treatment investigates the historical relevance of the Qumran scrolls to the study of Hasmonean history, while showing at the same time that the scrolls themselves cannot be understood without detailed knowledge of the historical context. This volume carefully demonstrates the interrelationship of historical and literary approaches to the scrolls while breaking new ground in understanding numerous Dead Sea texts."
Journal of Ancient Judaism
"In this study, Eshel discovers information in various Qumran manuscripts that corroborates Josephuss account about the Hellenistic religious reforms. . . . A seminal study on the history of Hasmonean Judah."
