The Dead Sea Scrolls Cloned!

The Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation has created exact replicas of the Isaiah Scroll, the Manual of Discipline and Pesher Habakkuk. They are going to be part of an exhibition in Seoul, Korea, on the Dead Sea Scrolls and early Christianity.

An excerpt from the article in the Jewish Chronicle:

The production has taken about a year and the results are extraordinary. The facsimiles have been printed on conditioned paper that looks, feels and sounds like parchment. Every stain, crack, tear in the original scrolls appears exactly in its place — an effect achieved by the use of advanced laser-cutting techniques. “All the tiny holes in the manuscript have been reproduced — some of them are hairline, including pinpricks,” said Linda.
