Dr. Weston Fields, the Executive Director of the Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation (the publisher and research supporter for the Scroll project), delivers a presentation on the Dead Sea Scrolls. RSVP appreciated.
Dr. Fields’ current work includes writing The Dead Sea Scrolls, a Full History (Vol. 1, Brill; Vols. 2-3 forthcoming). Since 1999 he has traveled extensively in the Middle East, Europe and the United States in order to interview everyone from the first generation of scholars then alive, including those who discovered scrolls in the 1950’s or were the first to examine and reconstruct them. As a result of these personal meetings he has amassed a large and diverse collection of personal letters, papers, and archives related to the first scrolls scholars, especially the famous Qumran Cave 4 Team.
