The Israel Museum has just announced that the first five scrolls of the Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Project are now available in an amazing digitized collection.  This project allows "users to examine and explore these most ancient manuscripts from Second Temple times at a level of detail never before possible. Developed in partnership with Google, the new website gives users access to searchable, fast-loading, high-resolution images of the scrolls, as well as short explanatory videos and background information on the texts and their history."

The five Dead Sea Scrolls available include the Great Isaiah Scroll, the Community Rule Scroll, the Commentary on Habakkuk Scroll, the Temple Scroll, and the War Scroll.
