Dead Sea Scrolls

Google and the Israel Antiquities Authority have launch a new digital library of the Dead Sea Scrolls, making them accessible to the public for the first time. The Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library features 5,000 images, including the second listing of the Ten Commandments and part of the first chapter of the Book of Genesis, dated to the first century B.C. The scrolls were found on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea between 1946 and 1956, and are considered one of the most significant archaeological finds of the 20th century. They are written in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Arabic and Latin. The multimedia site lets users to zoom in on various texts and fragments, with translations and Google maps included. "Only five conservators worldwide are authorized to handle the Dead Sea Scrolls," Israel Antiquities Authority Director Shuka Dorfman said. "Now, everyone can touch the scroll on screen around the globe."
