Dear friends, it is a pleasure to welcome you here! In the last year of 2017, the Dead Sea Scrolls completed their 70 years of modern life. This immense set of texts comprises the most striking archaeological discovery ever made in history! In order to remember this important date, several international institutions promoted events, meetings, seminars and publishing on manuscripts. In Brazil, in addition to the releasing of a book that put together the most important Brazilian researchers and great international names, we had the creation of this page, the first specialized in the subject in the country. We hope that it will be a contribution also for the international public, presenting an outline of the main subjects discussed in the 70 years of existence of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

   

     Videos and documentaries are available in English (and other languages), suggestions for research sites, Bibles, scientific articles already produced in Brazil and some of the most important Dead Sea Scrolls in English. All this gathered material will provide a coherent way of reflecting on this great set of texts – for the interested people in the subject, for the beginning researchers and for the academics – free from the sensationalist bias, as found in most websites.

     

     News will also be available on Ancient History, Prehistory and Biblical Research. In addition, congresses, events and publication released in these and related areas will have a space here, with the aim of informing the general public, to extend the interdisciplinary dialogue and to bring researchers closer to those areas. Anyway, let’s have this as a space for dialogue!

       

       The page will be updated weekly. Your help with suggestions and contributions will be essential! 

     

       Welcome, everyone!

After 70 years of discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the searches continue at full throttle. The University of São Paulo (USP) announces the work of Prof. Dr. Fernando Mattiolli Vieira, organizer of the book Dead Sea Scrolls: 70 Years of Discovery. Found curiously and initially by two Bedouins and then researchers scour the area, between 1947 and 1956 in 11 caves 930 manuscripts, 210 reproduce Biblical books, copies dating to 125-100 BC. Among them is the book of Isaiah. Fascinating!!! Largest archaeological discovery of the 20th century.

       We’d like to thank everyone for the huge spread of our site in digital spaces. The number of hits has been very large, which makes us think that the goal of making the Dead Sea Srolls better known and accessible to the general public has been achieved. Some recent shares deserve to be highlighted:
