The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of manuscripts found in 1947 in the Qumran caves, located on the northwest coast of the Dead Sea.

The texts are written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, and are of great religious and historical importance, as they include some of the oldest copies of biblical books and their comments.


The scrolls are commonly associated with the ancient Jewish sect, known as the Essenes.


The manuscripts are considered to be documents of universal interest. A World Heritage, essential for the understanding of our cultural evolution for over more than two thousand years.
