The Dead Sea Scrolls have gone… wait for it… DIGITAL!
How many of you have been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these seemingly secret ancient documents? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Someone on the uOAS exec has, though just barely and at a fair distance under layers and layers of glass. Such fragile, ancient documents need to be protected, but that doesn’t mean that they should be kept from the general public. Well, no longer. Ok, they are still under glass and lock and key and not on display, but the general public can access them online.
