The First International Symposium
BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVES: EARLY USE AND INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE IN LIGHT OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS

12-14 MAY, 1996 - Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Recent decades have seen a remarkable renaissance of the study of pseudepigraphical literature. This was partly fueled by the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls and partly by developments in the study of NewTestament and early Judaism. It is, however, only in the last few years that the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert volumes, containing the definitive texts of known and unknown pseudepigraphic writings, have started to appear. Thus, "Pseudepigrapha and the Dead Sea Scrolls" raises many new issues.

The Dead Sea Scrolls present us with an abundance of known and previously unknown pseudepigrapha. The purpose of this year's symposium is to assess what the contribution of the Dead Sea Scrolls is to the study of this literature and which questions have been resolved and which others created by the new discoveries.

We hope you will be able to join the participants and attend the International Symposium sponsored by the Orion Center for the Dead Sea Scrolls, Hebrew University.
