October 15, 2019

Work on the scrolls is passing into the hands of a new generation of scholars, while various key projects continue to draw NEH support. In 2019, a $300,000 grant was awarded to Alison Schofield, associate professor of religious and Judaic studies at the University of Denver, for a project that will produce a new scholarly edition and English translations of the first scrolls found in Cave 1, which thus far have been published only in French. This endeavor will use scroll fragments unavailable for the previous edition and employ state-of-the-art photographic technology. It will provide new introductions and commentary to further enhance our understanding of the Bible as well as the origins of Christianity and its relationship to Judaism.
