Dead Sea Scrolls Nebraska Lecture topic
Excitement, intensive research, rumor and controversy have surrounded the Dead Sea Scrolls since their discovery more than 60 years ago. The scrolls will be the focus of the spring Nebraska Lecture at UNL. Sidnie White Crawford, Willa Cather Professor and professor and chair of classics and religious studies, will discuss the discovery, study and publication of these manuscripts, as well as the controversies and rumors related to them.
The free public lecture, “The Dead Sea Scrolls After 60 Years: What Have We Learned?” will be at 3:30 p.m. April 15 in the Nebraska Union auditorium, 1400 R St., with a reception following. The presentation is part of The Nebraska Lectures: Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series.
The Nebraska Lectures, which feature distinguished UNL faculty, are designed for general audiences and provide insights about some of the university’s leading research, scholarly and creative activity. Crawford’s lecture is sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor, the UNL Research Council and the Office of Research and Economic Development.
