Scholars from around the world will discuss the history of the text of the Bible from its earliest known manuscripts, the biblical Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran, until the medieval period. Of special interest are fragments of the Bible in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Judaeo-Arabic found among papyri of Egyptian provenance and housed in the Vienna Papyrus Collection of the Austrian National Library.

The opening ceremony of the Symposium will take place on Sunday evening, April 10, at 6 p.m. at the Hebrew University’s Beit Maiersdorf Faculty Club in the presence of the Austrian Ambassador, His Excellency Martin Weiss.

This event will also celebrate the launch of the first volume of The Textual History of the Bible, a major reference work co-edited by Prof. Armin Lange and Prof. Emanuel Tov of the Hebrew University and published by Brill Academic Publishers of Leiden, the Netherlands.

The remainder of the sessions will be held in the Hebrew University’s Rabin Building on Mount Scopus (Monday 11.4 and Wednesday 13.4), and at the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, 4 Avraham Granot, Jerusalem (Tuesday 12.4).

The public is welcome to attend.
