Edmund Wilson, “The Scrolls from the Dead Sea,” The New Yorker (May, 1955), pp. 45–131 The book was published under the same title in the same year (London: Collins). It remained on bestseller lists for some time. In fairness, it should be said that Wilson was critical of Dupont-Sommer’s use of some passages from the Habakkuk Commentary on the grounds that they referred to the Wicked Priest, the archenemy of the Teacher, not to the Teacher himself (e.g., The Scrolls from the Dead Sea, pp. 92–93). But he does add unusually strong words of praise for the scholar of the Sorbonne (New Yorker, pp. 106–108).
