Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: We are planning three sessions. One session will focus on the question of a sacrificial cult at Khirbet Qumran. Jodi Magness will give the keynote address and her paper will be followed by a discussion between invited respondents. In connection to this subject we welcome papers for a second session that explores topics related to sacrifices and/or meals in the Dead Sea Scrolls. We also encourage ritual studies perspectives and topics on rituals that are not connected to sacrifice or meals. In addition, for a third session we invite papers on any subject related to Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
