The Dead Sea Scrolls
Our coverage of the 60th anniversary of the scrolls’ discovery comes to a close with an examination of the ruins of Qumran. Who lived there? Were they soldiers, ascetics or industrial laborers?
The series of “How the Dead Sea Scrolls Changed My Life” concludes with Princeton Theological Seminary’s James H. Charlesworth, who studied the scrolls to recreate the world of Jesus of Nazareth, and the University of Notre Dame’s James C. VanderKam, who recalls inheriting publication assignments from the original Scroll team, including the retentive Józef Milik.
