Dead Sea Scrolls Electronic Library

The editor of the software, Immanuel Tov, said, “the Dead Sea Scrolls Electronic Library (DSSEL) provides the users with a comprehensive tool for the study of the non-biblical texts from the Judean Deseart offering transcriptions, translations, images, an inventory, and software for carrying out searches and viewing the images” (Dead Sea Scrolls Electronic Library, Revised Edition, 2006).

DSSEL contains all the non-biblical Qumran texts presented in printed form in the Dead Sea Scrolls Readers (6 volumes set). You can search for words of Hebrew/Aramaic within the texts. One of the best things of this software is images of the scrolls. I most cases, each text, column, or fragment is accompanied by a single black and white image.
