All the evidence for daily, sabbath, and festival prayers in the Qumran scrolls is analysed in detail, document by document. On the basis of formal features and social-liturgical setting, these prayers are compared with each other to uncover divergent prayer traditions. Comparative material beyond the scrolls is used to reassess their place in the development of Jewish prayer.Evidence for prayers of different origin found at Qumran is important for reconsidering the nature of the scrolls, the community(s) which used them, and the history of Jewish liturgy. For several texts significant new reconstructions are offered.ContentsPreface Abbreviations and Sigla Introduction I Daily Prayers 1 Dating and Provenance 2 Reconstruction 3 Prayer Formulas4 Structure and Content 5 Liturgical Use 6 Summary II Words of the Luminaries 1 Dating and Provenance 2 Reconstruction 3 Form and Content 3.1 Words of the Luminaries and the Tahanunim 3.2 Words of the Luminaries and the Amidah 3.3 Prayer Formulas3.4 The Response 4 Liturgical Use 5 Summary III Other Evidence for Daily Prayer 1 11QPs[superscript a] David's Compositions 2 4Q408 3 4Q334 4 War Scroll 5 Hodayot 6 Community Rule 7 Summary IV Sabbath Prayer 1 11QPs[superscript a] David's Compositions 2 Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice 2.1 Form and Function 2.2 Qedushah and Sabbath Themes 2.3 Benediction Form 2.4 Summary 3 Daily Prayers 4 Words of the Luminaries 5 Summary V Prayer at Festivals 1 Festival Prayers1.1 Dating and Provenance 1.2 Reconstruction 1.3 Form 1.4 Liturgical Use 2 Other Evidence for Festival Prayer 2.1 Community Rule 2.2 Hodayot 2.3 Songs of the Sage 2.4 4Q409 2.5 11QPs[superscript a] David's Compositions 3 Festival Prayers in Context 4 Summary VI Daily, Sabbath, and Festival Prayer in Context 1 Annual Covenant Ceremony 1.1 Community Rule 1.2 Damascus Document 1.3 Other Evidence 2 Continuity and Modification 3 Motivation for Liturgical Prayer 4 Obligation in Prayer Conclusion Appendix Bibliography Index of Ancient SourcesIndex of Names and Subjects Plates
