Seventh Orion International Symposium
REWORKING THE BIBLE AT QUMRAN IN THE CONTEXT OF SECOND TEMPLE JUDAISM

A Joint Conference with the Institute for Advanced Studies Research Group 15-17 January 2002. Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Mt. Scopus and Givat Ram)

The symposium, sponsored in conjunction with the Qumran Research Group of the Hebrew University's Institute for Advanced Studies, 2001-2002, focused on the ways in which Scripture was viewed, reworked, and interpreted at Qumran, within the broader context of Jewish literature of the Second Temple period. These papers address the nature of biblical authority, the emergence of a biblical canon, legal interpretation, literary and exegetical techniques, the proliferation of interpretive genres, and continuity with rabbinic and early Christian exegesis. A reassessment of such issues for works of the Qumran community and related literature is particularly timely in light of the recent publication of a significant number of previously unavailable Scrolls that rework Scripture in diverse ways.
