The Post-2002 Dead Sea Scrolls-like Fragments: Pollutions in Accordance

“Pollutions” – that’s quite a word.

The Lying Pen of Scribes

Some of the post-2002 DSS-like fragments have polluted the DSS and Qumran modules in Accordance both on a corpus and manuscript level. This also has major statistical implications. In the following list I have listed all the post-2002 fragments that have made it into Accordance. I strongly recommend that they should be removed as they corrupt the dataset.
