In 2009, the members of the project published a website about the Qumran discoveries. The site aims to provide understandable information about the discoveries: the articles discuss, for example, the texts found in Qumran, the community behind the texts, and the history of Judaism in the Second Temple period. The editor of the site is Hanne von Weissenberg. Read more (in Finnish): http://www.helsinki.fi/teol/pro/qumran/index.html

Structured by four important themes, the book discusses various aspects pertaining to the interpretation of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The first theme is comprised by a number of essays that deal with different aspects of textual interpretation of particular Qumran writings. The second theme centers on the question of historical referentiality. How can the purported referentiality of particular Qumran writings be used in order to reconstruct an underlying historical reality? The third theme includes essays that pertain to different dimensions concerning the methodology of interpretation. The fourth theme focuses on problems relating to the textual reconstruction of specific Qumran texts. In the final section of the book, the perspective is widened to other writings outside the more specific Qumran context.
Hanne von Weissenberg’s book 4QMMT: Reevaluating the Text, the Function, and the Meaning of the Epilogue is published in December 2008 (Studies on the Texts of the Desert of Judah 82; Leiden: Brill).
This book focuses on the third section of one of the most important documents from the Qumran library, the epilogue of 4QMMT. It re-evaluates the textual basis for this section, and analyses how the epilogue functions as a part of the larger document. In addition to addressing the structure and genre of 4QMMT, this volume analyzes the use of Scripture in the epilogue in order to illuminate the theological agenda of the document’s author/redactor. Although this book’s primary focus is on the epilogue, the results of this investigation shed light on 4QMMT as a whole.
