The Aramaic lifeless Sea Scrolls characterize approximately thirteen% of the Qumran library and correspond to a variety of genres and themes. This ebook includes the court cases of a convention at the Aramaic scrolls from Qumran which happened in Aix-en-Provence in 2008. It contains either the papers themselves and a transcription of the discussions. The 22 papers take on linguistic, exegetical and old questions, focusing particularly on: the relation of the Aramaic texts to what we all know because the Hebrew Bible; their literary genres; the query in their sectarian or non-sectarian provenance; the nature of the corpus, and in particular its relevance to the improvement of apocalypticism and messianism within the Jewish culture.

It is also valid for the affinity between the Throne vision in 1 Enoch 14 and that in Daniel 7. The possible use of older, pre-biblical legends to expand Genesis 5–11 is beyond the framework of the present article. See the references in n. 6 above. THEMES AND GENRES IN THE ARAMAIC TEXTS 27 Throne vision (1 Enoch 14) are experienced in dreams. The themes of history and the Throne vision are also the subject of the giants’ dreams in the Book of Giants. So in both the two topics are treated only in dreams.
