The relationship of the Hodayot collection (1QH) to the Teacher of Righteousness has been of considerable interest ever since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Using form-critical and linguistic analyses, a few German scholars, among whom Jeremias and Stegemann may be mentioned, have attributed a subset of the Hodayot to the Teacher. All "Teacher Hymns" identified by various scholars surprisingly fall within 1QH 10-17:36. This dissertation makes use of a different literary approach and attempts to determine whether the hymns in 1QH 10-17:36 might have come from one author or several, whether literary sources have been used, and whether one of the authors was the Teacher of Righteousness. An overview of the criteria previous scholarship has used to isolate the "Teacher Hymns" from the "Community Hymns" is presented. The interrelationship of the "Teacher Hymns" and their relationships to the "Community Hymns" are analysed. Two groups of Hodayot in the "Teacher Hymns" are identified, each with its distinctive traits of style, content, and vocabulary, and two of the hymns have the greatest possibility of having been authored by the Teacher of Righteousness. The redactional shape of 1QH 10-17:36 is also explored.
