I AM SORRY TO REPORT HARTMUT STEGEMANN'S SUDDEN DEATH on 22 August. The funeral was on Friday. Eileen Schuller, who is currently in Göttingen, e-mailed me with the news today.

Professor Stegemann was a well-known Dead Sea Scrolls scholar. His work included a reconstruction of the Cave One Hymn Scroll and studies pertaining to the origins of the Qumran sectarians. He also worked on the historical Jesus.
Requiescat in pace
