Acc Arte Scritta was selected by The Israel Museum to carry out this project exclusively world-wide.
Since the first scientific publication on the Dead Sea Scrolls by Professor E. L. Sukenik (Hebrew University of Jerusalem, 1948), thousands of books, articles, documentaries and exhibits have been produced with the purpose of solving many of the mysteries that surround one of the most important archaeological discoveries in the world.
But it is surprising that, despite the fact that the texts themselves were translated into most of modern languages, there is no publication to date that has the purpose of bringing their contents closer to the general public.
This book fills this prominent void. For the first time in the world, the English text of the Commentary on Habakkuk, one of the central scrolls of the Qumran library, will be accompanied by historical, literary and theological explanations, will be available to a public who are eager for knowledge, without possessing any prior knowledge of the topic by the reader.
By reading this book, the reader will be able to know "from within" the historical-social reality, literature and thought of the Dead Sea Community, and through it, the Jewish world in the land of Israel in the Greco-Roman period that served as the matrix for the birth of Christianity.
