Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1226 – The Dead Sea Scrolls Documentary

Twelve years ago, for the 50th anniversary of the Dead Sea Scrolls discovery, I produced a documentary program featuring comments from William F. Albright, Yigael Yadin and others. At about that time I had inherited a collection of tapes from University of Wisconsin professor Menahem Mansoor featuring interviews done during production of a public radio documentary on the scrolls.

This week, in honor of the two museum displays currently being featured in Milwaukee and St. Paul, I am once again featuring that documentary, telling the story of the Dead Sea Scrolls discovery and relating its importance.

  1. Gordon, this show is absolutely incredible! To hear Dr. Albright's voice after all the studying I've done of his work is just so cool! Likewise w/ Yadin & de Vaux. Wow! Thank you so much for sharing this.You should expand the description of #647 on your programs list to mention the names of people included on this show.
