Description

The Hebrew Bible has considerably changed since its conception. Those changes were partly informed by the ancient biblical texts' materiality and usage. I argue that modern editorial concerns, like readability, usability, and accessibility, cannot be applied to a collection of scrolls from a predominantly illiterate and oral culture.
