Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "The Archaeology of Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls," a talk by Jodi Magness, professor of religious studies, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
One of the most significant, and controversial, archaeological discoveries ever made was of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Approximately 60 years ago, the remains of over 1000 ancient scrolls were discovered in 11 caves surrounding the site of Qumran near the Dead Sea. These scrolls represent a collection of Jewish religious literature; including the earliest copies of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) ever found. In this slide illustrated lecture, Dr. Magness explores the archaeological remains at Qumran and discusses the significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
This event is free and open to the public.
