   schema:description "Problems of delays and procrastination by the scholars in charge of deciphering and publishing the Dead Sea Scrolls have been evident since the early 1950s. This book gives hard evidence for a completely new explanation for the delays, as well as exposing huge gaps in the understanding of the Scrolls. Since the Scrolls were unearthed in 1947 the greatest cultural discovery of the twentieth century scholars have produced countless translations, descriptions, analyses, dictionaries, glossaries, commentaries, and archaeological studies of these texts. In this important account Robert Feather addresses many unanswered questions. Why were the Scrolls found in desert caves in clay jars? Why was the Qumran community isolated from the rest of society? What did it mean that they were at odds with the temple elite? Where did the Scrolls come from, particularly the Copper Scroll with its strange ancient Egyptian markings? What is the meaning of all the references to Egypt? Although this book deals with the era of Jesus and, before that, the ancient pharaohs, it comes right up-to-date with coverage of current tensions in the field of biblical and archaeological studies and disclosures that could shake the foundations of belief in all three monotheistic religions."@en ;
