Leverhulme International Network Grant Success for Qumran Caves Dispersed Artefacts and Archives Project

The Leverhulme Trust has agreed to fund a new international initiative entitled The Network for the Study of Dispersed Qumran Caves Artefacts and Archival Sources.

We are pleased to announce that the Leverhulme Trust has agreed to fund a new international initiative entitled The Network for the Study of Dispersed Qumran Caves Artefacts and Archival Sources for three years from April 1, 2016, to be directed by Professor Joan Taylor, Dept. of Theology and Religious Studies at King's College London, in association with Dr. Dennis Mizzi of the University of Malta and Prof. Marcello Fidanzio of the Faculty of Theology, Lugano.

This network will study important artefacts and archives in museums, institutes and private collections worldwide and is expected to reveal more crucial data about the Qumran caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. This will feed into the Qumran publication project currently in process as a collaboration between Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Française de Jerusalem and the Faculty of Theology of Lugano.
