“Can you get the actual Dead Sea Scrolls?”

(An interlibrary loan request)

Anonymous Submission

The first fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, comprising excerpts from the Old Testament Book of Isaiah, were sold by Bedouin to dealers in Bethlehem. They had been found in jars in a cave by a Bedouin goat herder. As their significance became known, the caves near the site of Khirbet Qumran were identified as their source and excavations were undertaken, according to: Milestones in Archaeology: A Chronological Encyclopedia (ABC-CLIO). For more information about the Dead Sea Scrolls search the Gale Virtual Reference Library.
