The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, in the middle of the twentieth century, has brought to light ancient biblical and related manuscripts that exhibit variant readings previously unknown — except for the Samaritan Pentateuch. These affinities raise the issue of the Samaritan Pentateuch’s origins and relationships with other textual traditions of the Hebrew Bible. The Strasbourg conference will explore various aspects in which the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Samaritan Pentateuch shed light on each other: history of religions, linguistics, material philology, textual criticism, exegesis, etc. Please join us on May 26–27 for this international research conference.Organized by Michael Langlois.
