Chapter Summary

For the sixtieth anniversary conference held at the Shrine of the Book in July 2008 the author was asked by the conference organizers to survey developments in research on women in the Dead Sea Scrolls over the past ten years and to look ahead to the future. By the late 1990s in the field of Biblical Studies, both Old Testament/ Hebrew Bible and New Testament, much attention had been devoted to exploring women in the texts and in the communities that produced these texts. In surveying the last ten years, it becomes apparent that there is a core of passages and topics that have generated ongoing scholarly attentionand about which the final word has probably not been said. As we look to the future, it is becoming increasingly clear that we will not advance our understanding of how women fit by focusing only on those texts that name women explicitly.
