[The copper scroll] It’s quite fabulous (Milik thinks literally so, but he’s a clot)

you [de Vaux] are unable to treat Christianity any more in an objective light; a pity, but understandable in the circumstances

To have taken a big part in the publication of these exciting finds, however, will be worth half a dozen doctorates to me, and will be the big bump-up I need for a future chair

I shouldn’t worry about that theological job, if I were you: by the time I’ve finished there won’t be any Church left for you to join
