Dead Sea Scrolls Online - Google Publishes 5 of the Scrolls

Postby Swalchy » Mon Sep 26, 2011 2:13 pm

Looks like they're finally on the way :)

These are different to the Dead Sea Scrolls Transcriptions you'll see on TWTY. Google obviously has a lot more money than I do, so they can take actual high-quality digital photographs of the scrolls, although their Terms of Use is a bit annoying =/

Anyway, kudos to Google for actually doing what scholars with 60 years and millions of dollar's worth of funding couldn't do - put the Dead Sea Scrolls in the public domain, for everyone to see :)

Please respect everyone, and try to not get too heated when discussing one's point of view :)

This is good as we can now confirm the work done here, but I really like the work done here far better because it lets one conpare one text to another easily. Please do not stop the work here until all is finished, awmane.
May,
YHWH bless thee and keep thee;
YHWH cause His face to shine on thee, and be gracious to thee;
YHWH lift up His face to thee, and give thee shalom.


Your brother in Y'hoshuah The Anointed One.
