Selected by Cheryl Adams and Pablo Calván, Humanities and

Material provided by Michael W. Grunberger, African and Middle Eastern
Humanities and Social Sciences Division Research Guide
This bibliography was created to coincide with the exhibition Scrolls
From the Dead Sea: The Ancient Library of Qumran and Modern Scholarship,
which was on display at the Library of Congress from April 29 to
August 1, 1993. Depicted in the banner above is a detail from the
one of the items displayed in the exhibit.
The bibliography, which lists resources available at the Library
of Congress, is divided into two sections: transcriptions,
reproductions, and reconstructions of the scrolls; and secondary
sources in Western languages concerning the history of the Qumran
community and the scrolls themselves.
