Abstract

From one perspective the Six-Day War would have been the most natural choice since the State of Israel became the de facto custodian of the scrolls with the capture of East Jerusalem and the Palestine Archaeological Museum in June 1967. It was some time before those working on the scrolls fully adjusted to the changes in access and oversight brought about by this transition from Jordanian to Israeli control. On the other hand, 1960 was also a logical choice because during this year the Rockefeller money on which the Palestine Archaeological Museum (PAM) and the Cave 4 Team had been so dependent was discontinued, and permission to distribute the scrolls to supporting institutions as a fund-raising tool, was rescinded by the government of Jordan. In the end it was simply space that dictated the choice.

Abstract

This front matter section of the book titled The Dead Sea Scrolls: A Full History contains the acknowledgements, table of contents, introduction, and prologue. The Dead Sea Scrolls-fascinating tales of their discovery, reconstruction, decipherment, and publication. These are the themes of the book, pursued, as much as possible, through the words of the men who were there, the men who found scrolls or bought them from the Bedouin, who spent long tedious months and years piecing together the giant incomplete jigsaw puzzle of scroll fragments, and decades preparing them for publication. In the book the author brings together new interviews with scholars and others associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls and many personal letters and other archival documents never made public until now.
