Williams' study is designed to address this new perspective and its implications for historical inquiry.  Read more...

It is noteworthy, therefore, that scholars have grown increasingly skeptical about the value of these materials for reconstructing the life of the Teacher of Righteousness. Travis B. Williams\' study is designed to address this new perspective and its implications for historical inquiry. He offers an important corrective to popular conceptions of history and memory by introducing memory theory as a means of informing historical investigation. Charting a new methodological course in Dead Sea Scrolls research, Williams reveals that properly representing the past requires an explanation of how the mnemonic evidence found in the relevant sources could have developed from a historical progression that began with the Teacher. His book represents the first attempt in Dead Sea Scrolls scholarship to integrate history and memory in a comprehensive way.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Cover; Half-title page; Title page; Copyright page; Dedication; Contents; Tables; Acknowledgments; Abbreviations; 1 Introduction; 1.1 The Traditional Perspective on the Teacher of Righteousness; 1.2 The New Perspective on the Teacher of Righteousness; 1.2.1 The Theoretical Framework of the New Perspective; 1.2.2 The Interpretive Focus of the New Perspective; 1.2.2.1 An Audience-Oriented Approach; 1.2.2.2 A Historical Approach; 1.3 Purpose of the Study; PART I METHODOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS; 2 A Theoretical Approach toward History; 2.1 The Scientific Approach toward Historiography<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/5592581438<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1076548100<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"History and Memory in the Dead Sea Scrolls : remembering the teacher of righteousness.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1105554233<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/public.eblib.com\/choice\/PublicFullRecord.aspx?p=5968374<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.1017\/9781108681285<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781108681285<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1105554233<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
