The Israel Museum and Google’s collaborative Digital Dead Sea Scrolls project,* which provides searchable, high-resolution images of several Dead Sea Scrolls, set its sights higher by attempting to read fragile and unopenable Dead Sea Scrolls through high-tech visualization. The project hired Brent Seales, the director of the University of Kentucky Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments, to create images of individual layers of scrolls too damaged to unroll. Seales has worked on a similar visualization with a scroll from Herculaneum. The damaged scrolls will join the already digitized Great Isaiah Scroll, the Community Rule Scroll, the Habakkuk pesher, the Temple Scroll and the War Scroll.
