      Stephen,

      Interesting. Does Dr. Yardeni give any specific rationale for
      concluding that this scribe actually lived at Qumran, or is her use
      of the term "Qumran scribe" simply shorthand for "the scribe who
      copied these 56 fragments that were found in caves near Qumran"? If
      the former, does she offer any explanation for why a fragment found
      at Masada -- where refugees from the siege of Jerusalem are known to
      have fled -- would have been copied by a scribe living at Qumran,
      rather than in Jerusalem?
