A traveling Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit has allowed American audiences to interact with early Biblical texts and life in first and second-century Israel. The scrolls’ final stop is at the Museum of Science in Boston (beginning in May 2013), and the museum has worked closely with Brandeis University students and faculty to organize the exhibit. The museum’s scientific focus has been led to a highlight on science in the scrolls, both in selection of ancient scientific texts and in modern analysis. Museum visitors will have the opportunity to learn about ancient astronomy alongside Biblical history, and will benefit from NASA technology used to analyze the ancient writing.
