RESOURCE: The Orion Center’s Dead Sea Scrolls Bibliography

July 17th, 2009 by Roberto C. Delgadillo


The Orion Center’s bibliography, which covers items from 1995 to the present, allows users to keep up to date on scholarship on the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Orion Bibliography was initiated and maintained by Dr. Avital Pinnick from 1995-2000. David Emanuel compiled the Bibliography from 2000-2002; it is currently overseen by Dr. Ruth Clements and Nadav Sharon. This bibliography is a joint project with the journal, Revue de Qumrân, and appears in that journal twice a year. The bibliography has been converted to Unicode formatting. The Current Bibliography is updated every Monday and contains the newest references, as they are added to the database. In the alphabetical files, under each author’s name, the works are arranged chronologically, from earliest to most recent.

May 30th, 2009 by Roberto C. Delgadillo


Divining America: Religion in American History is designed to help teachers of American history bring their students to a greater understanding of the role religion has played in the development of the United States. It is based on the fact that American history and religion intersect importantly at various points—the Puritan migration to New England, for example, abolition, or the Civil Rights Movement. Divining America illuminates these intersections, for to understand such events fully, students must acquire some appreciation of their religious dimensions.
