The Aramaic Dead Sea Scrolls represent roughly 13% of the Qumran library and correspond to a wide range of genres and topics. This book consists of the proceedings of a conference on the Aramaic scrolls from Qumran which took place in Aix-en-Provence in 2008. It includes both the papers themselves and a transcription of the discussions. The 22 papers tackle linguistic, exegetical and historical questions, focusing in particular on: 1) the relation of the Aramaic texts to what we know as the Hebrew Bible; 2) their literary genres; 3) the question of their sectarian or non-sectarian provenance; 4) the character of the corpus, and specifically its relevance to the development of apocalypticism and messianism in the Jewish tradition.
