Chapter Summary

Canadian scholars actively involved in the acquisition, publication and study of the Dead Sea Scrolls from as early as 1950 up until the present. This article demonstrates that Canadian scholars have been well represented in almost every aspect of Dead Sea Scrolls research. In addition, a number of &t;adopted Canadians&t; have contributed in major ways to the publication of the Scrolls. The survey has indicated, graduate work on the Scrolls has been centered at a cluster of universities: in French-speaking Canada at Université de Montréal, in English Canada at McMaster University and more recently at the University of Toronto, and at Trinity Western University, Langley, B. C. Finally, some mention should be made of what has proven to be a major avenue in Canada for the promotion and dissemination of information about the Scrolls to the general public: public exhibits of the Scrolls themselves.
