Cave 11 at Qumran contained a number of very important and well-preserved manuscripts such as the Temple Scroll and the Palaeo-Leviticus Scroll. The large size of those scrolls necessitated their publication as individual volumes. This volume contains complete editions of the remainder of the Cave 11 manuscripts which include biblical scrolls such as Ezekiel and Psalms, and a collection of important extra-biblical texts such as Jubilees (know previously from the Pseudepigrapha), Berakoth and Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice (both of which were also preserved in copies from Cave 4), Melchizedek and Hymns. In addition the volume also includes a new edition of the Targum of Job.
In A Christmas Wedding, Sam Al Kilanjar attempts to negotiate her first holiday season in a country with different customs, a big fat Ubarite wedding and the arrival of her drama-loving family, all without losing her mind-or her beloved, who is called away to deal with a crisis on the eve of their wedding. Veronica Baxter is excited about her wedding to Zadir Al Kilanjar, but worries that her estranged parents will ruin everything. Can they find Christmas miracles among the madness and enjoy the weddings they've dreamed of?
The Tales and Sayings of the Desert Fathers (Apophthegmata Patrum) are a key source of evidence for the practice and theory respectively of eremitic monasticism, a significant phenomenon within the early history of Christianity. The publication of this book finally ensures the availability of all three major collections which constitute the work, edited and translated into English. Richer in Tales than the 'Alphabetic' collection to which this is an appendix (both to be dated c.AD 500), the 'Anonymous' collection presented in this volume furnishes almost as much material for the study of the late antique world from which the monk sought to escape as it does for the monastic endeavour itself. More material continued to be added well into the seventh century and so the spread and gradual evolution of monasticism are illustrated here over a period of about two and a half centuries.
