First Dead Sea Scrolls Online

Five of the most important Dead Sea scrolls are now available thanks to a joint Google-Israel Museum project.

Five of the most important Dead Sea scrolls appeared on the Internet on Monday in what their custodians say will be a broader effort to make the celebrated manuscripts available to anyone who has a computer, AP reports.

The initiative, a joint project of the Israel museum and Internet giant Google, put online Monday the Great Isaiah Scroll, War Scroll, Habakkuk commentary, Temple Scroll, and scroll of Community Rule.

Web-viewers can search high-resolution images of the scrolls for specific passages, zoom in and out, and translate verses into English.
