Chapter Summary

The history of Scrolls research in the Netherlands is primarily characterized by continuity, reflected in the lengthy careers of its two pioneers, Jan van der Ploeg and Adam van der Woude. Jan van der Ploeg entered the Dominican Order in Huissen (Netherlands) in 1926 at the age of 17, and subsequently studied theology and biblical studies, including Hebrew and Syriac, in Zwolle, Huissen, Le Saulchoir (Belgium) and at the Angelicum in Rome. In 1957 Adam van der Woude defended and published his doctoral dissertation Die messiani-schen Vorstellungen der Gemeinde von Qumrän. Qumran research from 1974 to 1988 for the eologische Rundschau, and reflections on the Qumran biblical manuscripts and the evolution of the biblical text. The archives of the Royal Netherlands Academy show that van der Ploeg pleaded for swift publication of the cave 11 materials, and most of the Dutch manuscripts were indeed published fairly quickly.
