Walking through the MSP airport this morning, I noticed advertisements for the Dead Sea Scroll exhibit at the Science Museum. I had just listened to the SOF podcast on Preserving Words and Worlds a Few days ago. I'm wondering how museum curators of religious artifacts interpret, or navigate the distance between very academic topics and the knowledge base of the general public--I suppose a more general question is, how is a balance achieved between rigorous science and theology and popular religious consumption?
