Dead Sea Scrolls placed online
« on: September 26, 2011, 10:25:19 PM »
If you want to read the Dead Sea Scrolls, you can now do so online. The Israel Museum of Jerusalem (IMJ) has put five scrolls on its site, with the help of a process designed by Google.

From the article:
Quote
Ardon Bar-Hama, a noted photographer of antiquities, used ultraviolet-protected flash tubes to light the scrolls for 1/4000th of a second. The exposure time - which is much shorter than a conventional camera flash - was designed to protect the scrolls from damage.

Since its being publicized by a Jewish museum, I'm not surprised that they don't mention the LXX in their notes on the variant versions of Isaiah.  If one is aware of the bias present, the site is a great treasure.

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

if their academics are worth a lick they would have mentioned it ( i would think). 

Which variant versions of Isaiah exist in the LXX? 

I got nothing.
