Explore the Dead Sea Scrolls here, the website of the Shrine of the Book, the museum in Jerusalem built to house the Dead Sea Scrolls. In the column at the left, click on “Shrine of the Book” and you can access pages where you can read an introduction to the Dead Sea Scrolls and also read about the Qumran Community, about the Qumran Library, about the Building of the Shrine of the Book including an interactive tour, and about the Aleppo Codex.
A fascinating short video prepared by the Israel Antiquities Authority gives a quick introduction to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. What makes the video particularly interesting is that it pictures three of the key players in the discovery of the scrolls: Eleazer Sukenik, Metropolitan Athanasius Samuel, and Yagael Yadin.
