Torah & Bologna: history, development and significance of the found scroll

In 2013 the University of Bologna has found the oldest complete scroll of the Torah which may have been written more than
850 years ago.

The university's Professor of Hebrew Mauro Perani says this would make it the oldest complete text of the Torah, and an object of extraordinary worth.

This evening at the first event in the main Uni conference hall will speak Dr. Mauro Perani and Dr. Daniel Block from Wheaton College.
