James H. CharlesworthSidnie White Crawford

In this lively interview, BAR editor Hershel Shanks engages James Charlesworth and Sidnie White Crawford in a conversation about John Strugnell, a linguistics genius and editor-in-chief of the Dead Sea Scrolls project who was ousted as the project’s head in 1990 (as well as from his post at Harvard University) following alleged anti-Semitic remarks. Charlesworth and Crawford share personal accounts of their work with Strugnell and the Dead Sea Scrolls. This in-depth discussion also explores the role of the scrolls in relation to the study of early Christianity.
