Dead Sea Scrolls Web Pagehttp://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/~www_sd/qumran.html
University of St Andrews
This page was created and is maintained by Dr. James R. Davila, Lecturer in
Early Jewish Studies, for the honours course module DI3212/3213 (postgraduate DI4212),
"The Dead Sea Scrolls," to be taught for the first time in the spring semester of 2001.
This module is a survey of the Dead Sea Scrolls and related manuscript finds from the
Judean Desert. The class will read and discuss the major sectarian texts from Qumran with
a view toward understanding their place in Second Temple Judaism. Attention will also be
given to the archaeological context of the Qumran discoveries, as well as to the
revolutionary importance of the scrolls for our understanding of the Hebrew Bible
and the New Testament. Related manuscript discoveries will also be studied, such as
the letters from the period of the Bar Kokhba revolt. Readings for the online course
will be in English only. A schedule of classes and topics will be added to this page
in due course.
A public discussion group for this module will open in early February of 2001, and the students and instructor will use electronic mail to dialogue with students and scholars outside the University of St. Andrews on the subject matter of the course. Subscriptions to the Dead Sea Scrolls/Qumran list are now being accepted, although the list itself will not open for discussion until early February. But I will be sending out updates and bulletins to subscribers in the meantime. If you are interested in subscribing, please read the Community Rule that describes what we are about. If you would still like to join after reading the Community Rule for the qumran list, send an email message to:

Classics: the languages and literatures, history, civilization, art,
and archaeology. Of special value for scholars is both the richness
of the collection and its accessibility -- almost any avenue of
research in the classics can be pursued deeply and broadly under a
single roof. The unusually comprehensive core collection, which is
maintained by three professional classicist librarians, is augmented
by several special collections such as 15,000 nineteenth century
German Programmschriften, extensive holdings in Palaeography,
Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies. At neighboring Hebrew Union
College, the Klau Library, with holdings in excess of 400,000
volumes, is rich in Judaica and Near Eastern Studies.
