MMT as the Maltese Falcon

By Hershel Shanks

Qumran Cave 4-V: Miqsat Ma’ase Ha-Torah. Discoveries in the Judaean Desert X

Elisha Qimron and John Strugnell, in consultation with Ya’akov Sussman and with contributions by Ya’akov Sussman and Ada Yardeni (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1994) 235 pp., 8 photographic plates, $60.00
