Frank Moore Cross (1921-2012)

Jack Sasson announces that Frank Moore Cross has passed away. His significant contributions to textual criticism included work on the DSS and his theory of local texts for the Old Testament.
Wikipedia (currently) records the date of his death as 17th October, while Peter Machinist on Zwinglius Redivivus speaks of 'last night'. I suspect Machinist is a more reliable source though it could just be a time zone issue.

  1. I wonder how many scholars today have been influenced either directly or indirectly by FMC. A life well lived it seems.
