'Blank' Dead Sea Scroll fragments reveal text

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

New research has revealed that four Dead Sea Scroll manuscript fragments housed at The University of Manchester's John Rylands Library, which were previously thought to be blank, do in fact contain text.

The discovery means that The University of Manchester is the only institution in the UK to possess authenticated textual fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The study was undertaken as part of a Leverhulme-funded study held at King's College London, a collaboration between Professor Joan Taylor (King's College London), Professor Marcello Fidanzio (Faculty of Theology of Lugano) and Dr. Dennis Mizzi (University of Malta).

Turns out the text says "Intentionally left blank"
