Dr. Wacholder so much at-
tention, scholars say, is the
thrill of highjinks in the
ivory tower. The Dead Sea
Scrolls, discovered in the
late 1940s by a Bedouin
shepherd, have been guard-
ed closely by a small, inter-
national committee of schol-
ars.
The scrolls comprise some
of the most extensive docu-
mentation available of life in
Judea during the Second
Temple period.
The material found in the
caves has not reached full
publication, and many
scholars simply can not wait.
Dr. Wacholder, who is near-
ly blind at 67 years, was one
of them.
"The Dead Sea Scrolls
have been a scandal," Mr.
Shanks said. "This secrecy is
a breach of trust. These texts
do not belong to these men;
they are trustees. The
beneficiaries of that trust
are you and me."
Prof. David Freedman, of
the University of Michigan
and one of the scholars
selected to transcribe por-
tions of the scrolls, has been
calling for greater access to
the scrolls for more than 30
years, attributing the delay
to a lack of competition. He
favors a free-enterprise
system where at least two
individual scholars work on
transcribing and translating
the same manuscripts —
with the fastest scholar win-
ning the glory that comes
with first publication.
"Normally they assign the
manuscripts to a single in-
dividual — and that's the
reason for the delay," said
Prof. Freedman. "That's
very typical of scholars.
They want to sit on it."
But the major manuscripts
have been published and
Prof. Freedman said the
percentage of unpublished
material remains small.
At the very core of this
controversy is Mr. Shanks'
motivation for publishing a
potentially flawed transcript
of the scrolls.
"No one who publishes the
first version of a text has the
last word," said Mr. Shanks.
Primary texts are often the
subject of considerable dis-
agreement themselves, so
even the official transcript
will be corrected and recor-
rected in the future.
The next step — deriving
historical understanding
from the scrolls —may seem
tame compared to the sim-
mering controversy over the
scrolls' initial publication. ❑
