Paleo-Hebrew Dead Sea Scrolls Website
(by Antony Perrot)

On behalf of Antony Perrot:

The Paleo-Hebrew Dead Sea Scrolls Website is now available: http://www.paleohebrewdss.com/!

This website aims at sharing the palaeographic work achieved on the Paleo-Hebrew texts from Qumran. The work was carried out during the EAJS-Lab workshop entitled “Research Approaches in Hebrew Bible Manuscript Studies,” which took place in Aix-en-Provence in June of 2016.

The website provides an access to the article, the palaeographic tables produced using LaTeX, a digital access to the images of the hebrew letters and palaeo-hebrew fonts.

The project was coordinated by Antony Perrot and Matthieu Richelle. It could not have been accomplished without the support of the “Orient et Méditerannée” Laboratory (CNRS-UMR8167) and The Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library of the Israel Antiquities Authority.
