    DescriptionThe Dead Sea Scrolls have been described as 'the greatest manuscript discovery of modern times'. Since the first scrolls were found by a Bedouin shepherd in 1947, the remains of over 800 documents have been recovered from eleven caves in the Judaean desert. With all the scrolls now finally available in translation conclusions can at last be drawn as to their authorship and origins, their implication for Christianity and Judaism, and their link with the ancient site of Qumran. This timely book, written by three noted scholars in the field, draws together all the evidence and presents the first fully illustrated survey of every major manuscript, from the Copper Scroll, the Community Rule and the Temple Scroll to less well-known scripts such as the Florilegium and New Jerusalem.
