Great job Charles, "Oddly, Eisenman, does not seem to perceive, or at least does not mention, this larger political context (sitz-em-liben), but it is critical to decoding the full significance of the Dead Sea Scroll corpus as well as human history itself." I think that there is a great problem for the older generation in de-sacralizing these ancient 'religious' texts. This is just a hurdle that they do not want to make. Maybe Eisenmann will get there someday. It will be interesting to see.
