Muslim Spain exhibit at Elmer L. Andersen Library

| No Comments

Check out this exhibit: Muslim Spain: Conquest, Expulsion, Legacy, 711-2009 at Elmer L. Andersen Library on West Bank, Minneapolis campus, through Friday, October 30, 2009.

Professor Alex Jassen served as Academic Advisor for the Science Museum of Minnesota, Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit.

He recently completed a monograph entitled Scripture and Law in the Dead Sea Scrolls (forthcoming with Cambridge University Press). It is the first work of its kind to examine legal exegesis in the Dead Sea Scrolls from the perspective of both the history of Jewish law and early biblical interpretation. It seeks to bring together the study of Jewish law in the Dead Sea Scrolls with analysis of the hermeneutic strategies and techniques through which the Qumran community established its system of laws and sectarian rules.

Professor Jassen will be teaching a course on the Dead Sea Scrolls in Spring 2010 (Religious Studies, cross-listed with Jewish Studies).
