Here at theLAB we just received word of an exciting DSS conference taking place later this year at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland.
The conference, The Dead Sea Scrolls Seventy Years Later: Manuscripts, Traditions, Interpretations, and Their Biblical Context, is aptly timed to coincide with the 70-year anniversary of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The focus of the conference is wide in scope, including archaeological, paleographic, literary, historical, social, biblical, and religious topics.
Proposals are being accepted until July 15, 2017.
If you’ve been following theLAB, you’ve noted our love for all things DSS. We hope the following resources help in preparing your proposal (and paper) for a trip to Poland this Fall:
Two Significant Uses of the DSS (Drew Longacre)
How to Use the DSS in Biblical Studies (Tavis Bohlinger)
Why Should We Care about the DSS? (Tavis Bohlinger)
Parchments Found at New DSS Cave (Craig Evans)
