Google, Israel Museum Put Dead Sea Scrolls Online
The Dead Sea Scrolls have made their way online some 2,000 years after they were written through a partnership between Google and Israel’s national museum.
The important documents are available in searchable, high-resolution images, accompanied by informative videos, background information, and historical data. So far five of the scrolls have been digitized, including the biblical Book of Isaiah, the Temple Scroll, and three others.
This is wonderful. Making the Scrolls accessible to all is a great step in breaking - even a little bit - the chokehold a small coven of biblical scholars has had on close study of the texts.
