The Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered in the 1940s and rapidly became one of the most important discoveries in archeology, Judaica, and Biblical text criticism of the 20th century (arguably, ever, for those with a particular interest). Controversy and consternation arose among scholars around the world as they became frustrated by the way the sequential publication of the scrolls was handled. This series is the most important and authoritative publication of the contents of the scrolls.
