Dead Sea Scrolls: How They Changed Life
Picture
In this issue four prominent scholars tell BAR readers how the scrolls changed their lives. Harvard’s Frank Cross is the doyen of Dead Sea Scroll scholars; his views come in an interview with BAR editor Hershel Shanks. In the pages that follow, Emanuel Tov, the publication team’s current editor-in-chief, who replaced the controversial John Strugnell, describes his personal challenges in this demanding assignment; Sidnie White Crawford, now a leading scroll scholar in her own right, was just a kid back then but with a view from the inside; and Martin Abegg, who was also just a young graduate student back then, tells us how he used a computer to reconstruct some of the secret unpublished scrolls to help him with his doctoral dissertation.
