Liturgical Communion with Angels in Qumran
By Bjorn Frennesson
$46.50 paper original
This PhD dissertation studies the prevalence and importance of "liturgical communion with angels" as expressed in the Qumran texts. The writer views these texts as the remains of a sectarian library, the literary heritage of an exclusive and excluding community, whose self-image would have been characterized by its functioning like the Temple and in the constant presence of God's angels.
