“I love teaching because it’s a blessing. It’s a blessing to me because now they know about this part of history,” said Dr. Adolfo Roitman, curator of the Dead Sea Scrolls. On October 10, Roitman visited Anderson University to participate in the 31st Newell Lecture Series and to speak about his role as curator of the scrolls and the head of the Shrine of the Book at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. The day consisted of one general lecture, two scholarly lectures, and a question and answer session.
Adolfo Roitman, only the second curator of the Dead Sea Scrolls, has been in charge of the ancient documents since 1994 at The Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
