' The Materials Discovered'
First of two talks by the Rev. H. H. Rowley
Professor of Semitic Languages and Literature, University of Manchester In 1947 some ancient scrolls were discovered in a cave near the Dead Sea which proved to be of outstanding importance and aroused world-wide interest. Since then other caves in the area have been explored and other discoveries made. In this talk Professor Rowley gives some account of the materials discovered in the caves of Qumran, Murabba'at, and El Mird; and in his second talk, on Friday at 6.45, he surveys some of the discussions that have followed the discoveries and talks about the significance of the new material that has come to light. Much of this new material has not yet been published.

given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
