This page provides an overview of the activities of the Orion Center.
Programs: The Orion Center sponsors the Greenfield Scholars Seminars, a joint lecture series with the Shrine of the Book (Israel Museum), a joint lecture series with Tel Aviv University, a lecture series at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Jerusalem, and a weekly discussion and coffee hour.
Symposiums: The Orion Center convenes an annual symposium on the Dead Sea Scrolls and associated literature. Each symposium is devoted to a central theme which integrates new data from the scrolls with previous research.
Papers (preliminary form only) and abstracts presented at our annual symposiums and the Greenfield Scholars Seminars are available.
E-mail List: Over the past years the Orion Center has maintained a moderated Email discussion group, although the discussion group has been phased out, we still maintain the list in order to send out information about scrolls-related activities. The archives may be searched for past discussion topics.
