LCU is pleased to host the Third Annual Lanier Theological Library Lectures. This year’s exhibit will contain facsimiles and an original fragment of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of over 900 “biblical” manuscripts and “non-biblical” manuscripts found near the site of Qumran, north of the Dead Sea, between 1948 and 1956. The “biblical” manuscripts contain books found in today’s Hebrew Bible and the “non-biblical” texts appear to describe the religious beliefs and practices of a specific religious community.

October 21-30, 2014
