The Temple Scroll

Yigael Yadin (Israel Exploration Society: Jerusalem, 1983), 3 volumes, 1098 pp., $240

It was my good fortune to be the first to review the 1977 Hebrew edition of Yigael Yadin’s The Temple Scroll.a Now the same privilege is accorded me for the English edition. In my earlier review I wrote: “The volumes are spaciously and handsomely bound, the print is a delight to read, the illustrations are ample, and above all, the plates are remarkably clear—almost obviating the need to check the originals. The forthcoming English edition undoubtedly will possess the same virtues.” I am happy to report that my prediction has come true.
