Study Opportunities

Dead Sea Scrolls Web Page
Divinity School
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:

University of Cincinnati
Margo Tytus
Visiting Scholar's Program

The University of Cincinnati Classics Department is pleased to announce the Margo Tytus Visiting Scholars Program. Tytus Fellows, in the fields of philology, history and archaeology will ordinarily be at least 5 years beyond receipt of the Ph. D. Apart from residence in Cincinnati during term, the only obligation of Tytus Fellows is to pursue their own research. Fellowships are tenable during the regular academic year (October 1 to May 31).

There are two categories of Tytus Fellowships, long-term and short-term. Long Term Fellows will come to Cincinnati for a minimum of one academic quarter (two and a half months) and a maximum of three during the regular academic year. They will receive a monthly stipend of $1000 plus housing and a transportation allowance. Short Term Fellows will come to Cincinnati for a minimum of one month and a maximum of two during the regular academic year. They will receive housing and a transportation allowance.

Both Long Term and Short Term Fellows will also receive office space and enjoy the use of the University of Cincinnati and Hebrew Union College Libraries. While at Cincinnati Tytus Fellows will be free to pursue their ownresearch.

The University of Cincinnati Burnam Classics Library is one of the world's premier collections in the field of Classical Studies. Comprising 175,000 volumes, the library covers all aspects of the 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.

Application Deadline: January 1.
