Re: orion-list Scriptorium & Eisenman

Sorry, Jim, you have missed my point. I'm quite familiar with Eisenman's
views, but I don't think he has written on the BIBLICAL TEXT in the DSS,
which is what the Scriptorium conference is all about. If he has made
contributions to TEXTUAL study (i.e. Biblical Text), I'd like to know
about them. He has tended to be concerned more with historical
reconstruction and the interpretation of the various (mostly non-biblical)
fragments, not with TEXTUAL work as such. Or am I missing something?
