A survey of the site of Qumran and the accompanying caves illustrated by slides will demonstrate the manner in which our understanding of Jewish history of the Second Temple period has changed as the result of these archaeological discoveries.
We also will focus on some of the new developments in the study of the texts that only became more readily available to the scholarly community in the 1900s and on the implications of the study for our understanding of Jewish history. The presentation will demonstrate the manner in which this evidence opens up new pespectives on the development of Judaism during this crucial, formative period in its history.
