Chapter Summary

The Assessment of Dead Sea Scrolls scholarship in the United Kingdom, in the Society of Biblical Literature volume of cave 1, Florentino Garcia Martinez and Julio Trebolle Barrera noted how members of two universities have played the most active roles in research on the Scrolls: Manchester and Oxford. Overall, there has been a very rich history of research on the Scrolls in the United Kingdom. Twelve scholars active in Britain have been members of the international team responsible for parts of the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series. In addition, research on the rule books, the Damascus Document and the Community Rule in particular, and the investigation of all aspects of scriptural interpretation, those two longstanding research interests of scholars working in Britain, look set to continue for the next generation with productive vigour.
