Dead Sea Scrolls to go online

October 22, 2010

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) has announced plans to make the Dead Sea Scrolls available online.

With support for major donors and in cooperation with Google, the IAA will make high-resolution images of the Dead Sea Scrolls available, together with a database providing transcriptions and translations. When the project is complete—within 5 years, the IAA predicts—the original scrolls will be kept in a climate-controlled environment to preserve them from decay.
