Imaging of the Dead Sea Scrolls: The Dynamics of Change in the Computer Imaging of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Other Ancient Inscriptions

"This article is a revised and enlarged version of a study previously published in conventional book form. Its aim is to see what can be done, using current technologies, to transform a static text into a dynamic, all-electronic, media-rich essay. The transformation was designed not simply to illustrate key points in this study, but to begin to embody a new form of visual analysis that takes full advantage of high resolution photography, special imaging techniques and animation to enhance its narrative."
