The essay examines the modern classification of calendars at Qumran (based on available literature from 2002 and 2009). The thin literature review shows that contemporary scholars differ in their perception of how the calendars should be grouped. The study argues that the calendars in the collection are connected and that they should not be artificially separated by classifying them according to a "sectarian"-based model.
