The Story of the Scrolls

Geza Vermes

Since their discovery in 1947 the Dead Sea Scrolls have revolutionized our understanding of ancient religious life in the century after the death of Jesus. Few scholars have been as closely associated with the scrolls as Geza Vermes and in The Dead Sea Scrolls Revisited he has written the remarkable story both of his own involvement with them and the scrolls own 'history' in the decades since their discovery, as the extraordinary implications of their contents have sunk in. Writing with great charm and flair and with unique authority, Vermes has created an ideal introduction to understanding these miraculously preserved ancient documents.

Geza Vermes's books include The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English and The Changing Face of Jesus. He is Professor Emeritus of Jewish Studies at the University of Oxford.
