This project will challenge the widely-held scholarly assessment of the Qumran manuscripts known as Pseudo-Ezekiel and suggest that the current classification runs counter to the latest insights on the fluidity of the emerging Bible in light of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

With the aid of cutting-edge digital tools, I will offer a new material reconstruction of the parchment scrolls of Pseudo Ezekiel from Qumran.
