Are the Dead Sea Scrolls a hoax?...

Item # 649503

March 4, 1949

THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 4, 1949 

* Dead Sea Scrolls a hoax?

Page 19 has half a column taken up with a report headed: "BIBLE SCROLL 'FIND' SUSPECTED AS HOAX" "Dr. Zeitlin of Dropsie College Splits With Other Scholars on Dead Sea Discovery". This is a report on the recently-found Dead Sea Scrolls and curious that this report focuses on a scholar who believes them to be a hoax, ending with: "...It seems that the entire find is not an important discovery, but possibly a hoax." (see images).
