My project involves a full material and exegetical study of the six Temple Scroll-related manuscripts. I am applying the insights of material philology to the manuscripts in order to reconsider the material evidence available to us. I will integrate these material insights with a comprehensive exegetical study of the scrolls’ contents, with the aim of shedding new light on their scribes and editors. I am interested in the evolution of the composition, and what drove literary elites to produce these scrolls.
