Joseph M. Baumgarten: An Appreciation

By Yaakov Elman

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Summer 2003

At the 33rd AJS Conference which took place in Washington, D.C. a special session was convened to celebrate the accomplishments of two noted Dead Sea Scroll scholars, both of whom spent their academic careers in the Washington area. Yaakov Elman discusses the work of Professor Joseph Baumgarten, formerly of Baltimore Hebrew College, and Lawrence H. Schiffman discussed Professor Joseph Fitzmyer of the Catholic University of America. Each of these legendary scholars, reflecting widely different faith commitments, profoundly influenced the modern study of the Dead Sea Scrolls within Ancient Judaism.
