The most important discovery of documents written in the “Jewish” script is the discovery of the documents from the Judean desert, known as “the Dead Sea Scrolls.” These show the graphic evolution of the so called “Jewish” letter forms. “Dr. Ada Yardeni stands at the head of her field, and this book is the best ever produced on the topic… The book excels in so many ways… all of which will appeal to professional and lay readers alike. “…the book masterfully describes the information it is possible to glean from a careful, even minute, examination of the letters and words of ancient Hebrew and Aramaic documents. …all the knowledge that must be assimilated by anyone who aspires to begin the long journey toward at least a partial expertise in the analysis of ancient Hebrew and Aramaic inscriptions and texts. “…she has provided a glimpse of the very inner workings of her mind; indeed, that she has divulged to the reader her ‘trade secrets.’ “This book sets a new standard in the field of ancient Hebrew and Aramaic paleography.” ~ From the Foreword by Weston W. Fields, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation Information includes: Deciphering the “Jewish Alphabet”A record of the script, divergences and developmentThe evolution of the “Jewish Alphabet” from the late 3rd to early 2nd centuries BCE — a suggestion for chronologyA reasoned proposal for applying scribal progression and characteristics to the dating of the Dead Sea Scroll fragmentsTypical Features of: Early and Mid-Hasmonean Formal Script Late Hasmonean or Early Herodian Formal Script Late Herodian Formal Script
