Chapter Summary

Research on the Dead Sea Scrolls in Spain shaped by three key factors. The first concerns a Spanish institution in Jerusalem, the Casa de Santiago, founded in 1955, following its affiliation to the Pontifical University of Salamanca in 1975- Created as the Spanish counterpart to other international institutions based in Jerusalem, it allowed biblical scholars and archaeologists to conduct digs in Israel and Jordan, and to broaden their education at Jerusalem institutions such as the Ecole Biblique, the Studium Franscis-canum or the Hebrew University. The Casa de Santiago thereby provided Spanish scholars with aplace to meet other colleagues with similar interests. Julio Trebolle Barrera and Florentino Garcia Martinez developed a passion for Qumran research during their years in Jerusalem. And together they have managed to transmit this interest to many other Spanish scholars by assiduously working on the development of Dead Sea Scrolls research.
