Where are the Scribes in the Dead Sea Scrolls?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This column reflects on the scarce evidence of explicit references to a scribal consciousness in self-descriptions of the writers and copyists responsible for the Dead Sea Scrolls. Instead, ancestral figures are imagined as scribes of old with little interest in revealing glimpses of the personal profile of individual scribes whose efforts gave us the remains of close to one thousand ancient Jewish scrolls.
