The discovery, content and historical context of the Temple Scroll, the longest and perhaps most important of the Dead Sea Scrolls from Qumran. Alongside the scroll itself were displayed other manuscripts, archaeological finds, and works of art, illuminating the material and spiritual world of the Qumran community, and highlighting one of the most crucial elements of Jewish identity—the institution of the Temple. Includes essay on images of the Temple of Jerusalem in all types of Jewish Art and the literary sources behind them (Shulamit Laderman). No itemized listing.
