Google and the Israel Antiquities Authority launched the Dead Sea Scrolls digital library on Tuesday.
Using Google and NASA technology, some 4,000 scans of infrared photographs taken right after their discovery in the 1950s have been uploaded. The new website allows visitors to look at and read the fragments, text search in Hebrew and in English translation, as well as place the specific scroll at the site where it was first found.
