Details and specifications on: Dead Sea Scrolls Revealed, £34.95. Provides interviews, pictures and an historical overview of these important scripts.
The Dead Sea Scrolls Revealed is an officially authorized CD-ROM, exploring the original texts of the Dead Sea Scrolls with interviews, translations, and video clips.
The Dead Sea Scrolls lay hidden in the Judean desert for almost 2,000 years. They were written in the Holy Land at a time when Christianity was about to take shape and Judaism was undergoing momentous developments. Ever since their chance discovery in 1947, they have posed a series of challenging and unsettling questions. Who wrote them, and why? Do they hold a secret meaning? What do they reveal about the origins of Christianity and modern Judaism?
This interactive CD-ROM will serve as a friendly guide to all the major aspects of the scrolls and their background.
It offers close-up pictures, for instance, of the exquisite lettering on the ancient Hebrew texts, or flies the viewer through unique 3D constructions of the Qumran settlement and of the conceptual Temple as described in the Scrolls.
And it provides various historical overviews that distil decades of scholarly research. These overviews include:
The discovery of the Scrolls, and the fascinating story of how they were subsequently bought and sold, and eventually brought together as a collection.
The location, describes the desert environment around the Dead Sea, and the influence it must have had on the lives and thoughts of the inhabitants.
The people, notably the Essene Sect, associated with the doctrines of the Scrolls.
The scholarship, archaeological, linguistic, Biblical, and scientific - that has gone into piecing together the Scrolls and unlocking their significance.
The Dead Sea Scrolls Revealed is a powerful multimedia database - richly textured through its cross-referenced capabilities, yet always easy to use. Among its notable technical features are several floating palettes, designed to help navigate smoothly and retrieve information.
The Dead Sea Scrolls Revealed not only draws on the research of the world's leading Scrolls scholars - you can see and hear a number of them expressing their individual opinions on the subject.
This officially authorized CD-ROM of the Scrolls was developed by Pixel Multimedia and Aaron Witkin Associates in association with the Israel Antiquities Authority and under exclusive license. A special version of this CD-ROM was presented by the producers, in conjunction with Apple Computer, at the Scrolls exhibition held in the Vatican in the summer of 1994.
