The problem of this dissertation is to compare the text of the Dead Sea Scroll of Isaiah (DSia) with the Masoretic text, the Septuagint, and the Isaiah texts of the early church fathers, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Eusebius, Justin Martyr and Ignatius, and from this comparison to determine the best possible readings for the particular variants studied, and also to determine the textual value of DSia iu reconstructing the most probable original text of the book of Isaiah. A necessary part of this comparison has been the inclusion of the conjectures of many textual scholars on the book of Isaiah and other textual witnesses. [TRUNCATED]
