If you have ever gone to see them live you understand why releasing them online is important. Most are kept in nitrogen filled viewers. The can only be exposed to very dim harmless light sources. No Photos. The duration of the light depends on how badly the individual pieces are degraded. Usually 9 to 20 seconds. Then dark period for a couple min. Then the lights can cycle again.

They tried handling them in a different manner and there was some damage. Oxidation, fading etc. Its a pretty interesting display. They have several different items from that time period including textiles and utilitarian items like clay lamps.

The other thing is there are several scrolls that haven't been pieced back together yet. They have table after table full of jigsaw fragments to put together. Some books they know they have a portion of still need to be completed.

The Dead Sea Scrolls were an amazing set of texts. I remember I took a class on them in undergrad and my professor explained so many things. They were believed to be the Essenes, one of the presumed sects archaeologists believe Jesus belonged too. There were other stories, especially an Armageddon like story, where there would be a battle between the forces of good and evil. It was very interesting.

Does anyone on here know who John Marco Allegro is? He was a translator on the DSS and released his findings decades ago. His findings did not quite "jive" with the Official Catholic Church translations.

Might be interesting to look him up.

The most interesting and relevant result these scrolls could have is to turn an established system on its head and leave its followers lost in the rain...that is to say, to prove that all Judaism-related religions are fallacy (not that I believe such). Unfortunately, such a result has controversial benefits and detriments to the point of having being a convoluted massacre of unpredictable madness. Whether we would survive in civility, or simply revert to homo erectus, is beyond my discernment.
