Course Description:

Seventy years ago, seven ancient scrolls were discovered that would dramatically change our understanding of the Bible and early Judaism. Thousands of fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls were unearthed over the next decade, but scholars were limited in their analysis and reconstructions. Today, digital imaging and scanning technologies have shed new light on these discoveries. Join religious studies scholar Catherine Murphy for an image- and video-rich lecture focused on these fascinating desert finds and how science and religion are working together to recover our shared past.
