Qumran Sectarian Manuscripts Update in Logos

After having the product available for over 10 years, Logos Bible Software has released a substantive update to their Qumran Sectarian Manuscripts database (ed. Martin Abegg). Most significant among this update’s improvements are that the resource:

  • Now contains more than 100 scrolls than in the previous version (737 documents are now represented).
  • Several texts in the previous version have been reorganized to reflect the latest scholarship on their reconstruction.
  • The database’s morphology has been updated to WHM 4.18.

For more information, please see the Logos blog.
