Dead Sea Scrolls Institute
The Dead Sea Scrolls Institute provides important resources and scholarly support to the University's Graduate Program in Biblical Studies. The Institute sponsors regular symposia, in which leading scholars from around the world are invited to give lectures to students and to the public on the latest advances in scroll research.
John Collins of Yale University Divinity School offered the inaugural address at the September 30 1995 symposium.
