HIGH POINT -- Held over! With record-breaking attendance, "The Dead Sea Scrolls to the Bible in America" exhibit will be staying at Providence Place in High Point through April 10.

"This is by far the best-attended exhibit we've had in the nine cities where we've had the exhibit," co-curator Joel Lampe said.

The High Point exhibit was originally set for Jan. 17 through Feb. 27, but the run was almost immediately extended through Easter on March 27.


PaleoJudaica readers will recall that this is the exibit associated with the antiquities dealers who are selling columns cut from a 300- to 400-year-old damaged Torah manuscript and pages from early printings of important English Bibles.
