Showcase with Barbara Kellar: Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times Exhibit at Cincinnati Museum Center

Concealed inside a hidden cave along the shore of the Dead Sea, 972 remarkably-preserved scrolls -- that had not been seen for 2,000 years -- were re-discovered almost sixty years ago. The Dead Sea Scrolls, as they were now named, included the earliest Biblical texts ever discovered.

 

Cincinnati Museum Center’s newest exhibit Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times features the most comprehensive collection of ancient artifacts from Israel ever organized, including one of the largest collections of the priceless 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls. (The artifacts include religious articles, weapons, stone carvings, textiles, mosaics, jewelry and ceramics.) This exhibit is on display now through April 14, 2013.

 

On this edition of Showcase, Barbara Kellar talks with Dr. Risa Levitt Kohn about her role in the creation of this artistic and cultural exhibit.
