Chapter Summary

One of the most important issues for organizing a layout of a Qumran meeting was to invite people who were known to be against Roland de Vaux, the excavator of Qumran, with his classical theory, which says that Qumran was a sectarian community. In June 2007, in preparation for the Qumran workshop planned for April 21-25, 2008, new interesting relics of material- and bio cultures had to be collected to be treated in a trans-disciplinary workshop at the Lorentz Center to continue the trend of collaboration within the Mathematics' and Physics' Institute at Leiden University of which the Lorentz Center is an integral part. The workshop at the Lorentz Center would be entitled "Holistic Qumran". Qumran proves the shaping of the biblical texts as today, be it through a long process of variant readings of holy texts that the scribes penned down.
