Dead Sea Scrolls

Helen R. Jacobus argues that biblical stories involving encounters between angels and humans before the Flood were used to teach algebra, astronomy and astrology in Jewish circles more than 2,000 years ago. She discusses the previously unknown ancient scientific texts discovered at Qumran.


Dr Jacobus (PhD Manchester) is an honorary research associate at UCL. Her book 'Zodiac Calendars in the Dead Sea Scrolls: Ancient Astronomy and Astrology in Early Judaism', is published by the Institute of Jewish Studies, UCL (Brill).
