Event description

Description

Schweich Lectures on Biblical Archaeology

This lecture will pay attention to the material features of the Dead Sea Scrolls to view them as cultural artefacts. Much study has been devoted to the scribal evidence of the Scrolls, but there are many changes now afoot, partly under the influence of the so-called New or Material Philology. George J Brooke will offer a survey of the scientific techniques that have been and can be used for material analysis. There will also be analytical description of various recent and current projects that treat the material remains of the Scrolls.

This is the second lecture in a series of three. Further information about the series can be found here.
