“The Dead Sea Scrolls and Hellenism”

Activiteit: Organising and contributing to an event Academic


Co-organiser of the fifth international meeting of the Groningen–Leuven network of the Dead Sea Scrolls, 13-14 April 2016 in Groningen, the Netherlands.

The theme is “The Dead Sea Scrolls and Hellenism.” While for long scholars have dealt with Judaism and Hellenism as two separate entities, recently the views concerning their relationship have shifted and a growing number of scholars now deal with ancient Judaism within the context of broader ancient Mediterranean culture. Given this scholarly position, it is time to take a fresh look also at the scrolls and the site of Khirbet Qumran and contextualize them in this milieu.
