Ezra the Scribe famously discovered a Torah Scroll and instituted public Torah readings on Shabat, Monday, and Thursday.

Are there any mentions of Torah Scrolls (specifically written) between Moshe and Ezra?

    Do you count mention of the Torah as written (plentiful, see for instance Melachim 1 2:3, "as it is written in the Torah of Moshe") or do you only want people physically interacting with the scrolls themselves? – Rish Dec 17 '15 at 16:15

    it would be nice to have more examples... – sds Dec 18 '15 at 14:43
  • @sds Why would you think there are so many examples? The scrolls probably sat in the study halls and were used for study. The stories in the Neviim don't talk about people just sitting and studying all that often. – Double AA Dec 18 '15 at 15:58
