The Israel Museum & Google Bring The Dead Sea Scrolls Online

Digital Dead Sea Scrolls

The Israel Museum has partnered with Google to bring the Dead Sea Scrolls online as interactive, searchable, high resolution documents (see Google’s blog post and video on the project). The scrolls were discovered in caves near the Dead Sea from 1947 to 1956 and include the oldest known biblical manuscripts. So far five of the scrolls are online of the 972 texts recovered from the caves.
