Dead Sea Scrolls Online & Damascus Gate Renovation

With Prof. Keith Schoville

A couple of decades ago we spent quite a few of our Book & The Spade programs reporting on how the Dead Sea Scrolls were freed from the control of a handful of scholars and made available to all scholars. Now the Dead Sea Scrolls are even more available, and in much higher resolution, online. So we talk about that on this week’s program, as well as the renovation of one of the main entrances into the Old City of Jerusalem, the Damascus Gate.
