Non-canonical Psalms from the Genizah

Meir Bar-Ilan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The aim of this paper is to discuss a text comprised of non-canonical
psalms that was published as early as . Some  years later the text
was “rediscovered” and a connection to Qumran posited, but subsequent
scholarly debate and the speculative nature of the discussions make it
clear that the historical circumstances and contexts of the entire issue
from its very beginnings require further clarification. The main objective
of this paper is to describe the document in relation to the background
history of the Jews in Antiquity, as well as to discuss its relationship to
Qumran and various liturgical and theological elements of Judaism.
