The Dead Sea Scrolls Revealed


This interactive CD-ROM will serve as a friendly guide to all the major aspects of the Scrolls and their background. It includes first published color images of the ancient manuscripts; color photos of artifacts, people, and historical sites; and over 70 minutes of unique historical video, 3D animated computer reconstructions, interviews, and more. The Dead Sea Scrolls lay hidden in the Judean desert for almost 2000 years. They were written in the Holy Land at a time when Christianity was about to take off and Judaism was undergoing momentous developments. Ever since their chance discovery in 1947, they have posed a series of challenging and unsettling questions. Who wrote them, and why? Do they hold a secret meaning? What do they reveal about the origins of Christianity and modern Judaism?
