Qumran scroll amphora

The archaeological findings of Qumran, close to the Dead Sea, was the sensation in the fifties of the 20th century as the amphorae contained papyrus roles produced during the first centuries BC and AD, hence they preserved the oldest Bible manuscripts.

The scrolls from the dead sea

Qumran, today called Khirbit Qumran in the West Bank close to the Dead Sea, became the place of discovery between 1947 and 1956, when in eleven caves near the ruins of an antique settlement about 15,000 fragments of about 850 scrolls from ancient Judaism were found in amphorae. Around at least 500 different scribes had written the texts between 250 BC and 40 BC.

Among the scrolls were are about 200 texts of the later Tanach, the earliest known manuscripts of the Bible. Still today, the question of the relation between these texts and the settlement of Qumran is not fully resolved.

Qumran roles from the dead sea

Also in other caves near the western shore of the dead sea ancient scrolls were found, for example in the year 1952 in Wadi Mur Abba'at (about 20 km south of Qumran), from 1963 on at Masada in the Nahal Hever, in Wadi Sdeir and Nahal Ze' (1960) as well as in Nahal Arugot, 2004.
