Reflections on some of the published and unpublished Dead Sea Scrolls, by John Strugnell.

The speaker is one of the team of scholars engaged in preparing the first edition of the more recently discovered manuscripts. In this talk he considers the way in which this new evidence may modify some of the views that have been advanced about the place and significance of the Qumranite sect and its writings. He cites as examples some problems of Old Testament textual criticism and some of the Qumranites' beliefs about the Messiah. One of the recent publications referred to is The Dead Sea Scrolls by John Allegro.

A discussion
The current exhibition of paintings by George Stubbs at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, has been the first full opportunity for many people to discover the character and assess the value of Stubbs as an artist. In this programme Gerard Frankl and Michael Kitson discuss the painter with Basil Taylor, who has been studying Stubbs for some years and has selected the works for the present exhibition.
