Both personally and on behalf of the editors of the Qumran manuscripts, I would like to
express sincere gratitude to Her Majesty the Queen Doña Sofía, and their Excellencies the
Minister of Education and Science, the Minister of Culture, the President of the Autono-

congress possible, and for their lavish hospitality. Also to Professors Julio Trebolle Barrera,
Luis Vegas Montaner, and Javier Fernández Vallina for the immense amount of work and
planning required to make this congress possible and make it function so smoothly. I am
truly grateful because the congress succeeded in providing a significant impetus to the
publication of the scrolls as well as valuable interaction and communication of knowledge
among the individuals publishing and interpreting the scrolls.
