Session Synopsis: This session describes the increasing trend for acquisitions of "new" Dead Sea Scrolls fragments in private or institutional collections around the globe. These include fragments purchased by Martin Schøyen, Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary, the Lanier Theological Library, the Green family, and Azusa Pacific University. The session concludes with a glance at how the thousands of "unidentified" texts currently available to scholars also provide a veritable treasure trove for re-discovery.
