Lecture series at Minnesota DSS exhibit

THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS EXHIBITION at the Museum of Science of Minnesota, has a lecture series lined up:
Kicking off in the coming week is a series of lectures by scholars who have studied the scrolls. First up is "The Dead Sea Scrolls and Their Jerusalem Origin" by Norman Golb, a professor of Jewish history at the University of Chicago. He'll speak at 7 p.m. Thursday.

He will be followed by Michael Wise from Northwestern College in Roseville on May 20; Risa Levitt Kohn from San Diego State University on June 10; Alex Jassen from the University of Minnesota on July 15; and Jodi Magness from the University of North Carolina on Aug. 12.
This is an unusually diverse collection of speakers and I'm sure the series will be very interesting.
