Who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls?

09 October 2013

Mladen Popovic, director of the Qumran Institute of the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, is the initiator and curator of the highly popular exhibition on the Dead Sea Scrolls in the Drents Museum. Together with the Ubbo Emmius Fund of the University of Groningen, he has started a crowdfunding appeal to fund research into the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Using Artificial Intelligence technology, Popovic intends to digitally analyse the scrolls.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
