The Dead Sea Scrolls at Seventy: “Clear a Path in the Wilderness” - 29-30/04-01-02/05/2018, Jerusale
To mark seventy years since the initial discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, an international symposium will be held in Jerusalem, April 29–May 2, 2018. The overarching symposium theme will be “The Wilderness”—as a real place; as the location of biblical episodes, most notably during the formative years of Israel's wandering from Egypt to the Promised Land; as a motif; and as a concept (sometimes idealized, sometimes demonized).
ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Esther Chazon (Director, The Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Associated Literature, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem) ; Armin Lange (Professor of Second Temple Judaism and Director of the Institute for Jewish Studies, University of Vienna) ;Lawrence H. Schiffman (Judge Abraham Lieberman Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, New York University); Pnina Shor (Curator and Head of Dead Sea Scrolls Projects, The Israel Antiquities Authority) ; Adolfo D. Roitman (Lizbeth and George Krupp Curator of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Head of The Shrine of the Book, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem).
