The oldest Biblical manuscripts in existence, the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in caves near Jerusalem in 1947, only to be kept a tightly held secret for nearly fifty more years, until the Huntington Library unleashed a storm of controversy in 1991 by releasing copies of the Scrolls. In this gripping investigation authors Baigent and Leigh set out to discover how a small coterie of orthodox biblical scholars gained control over the Scrolls, allowing access to no outsiders and issuing a strict consensus interpretation. The authors' questions begin in Israel, then lead them to the corridors of the Vatican and into the offices of the Inquistition. With the help of independent scholars, historical research, and careful anaysis of available texts, the authors reveal what was at stake for these orthodox guardians: The Scrolls present startling insights into early Christianity - insights that challenge the Church's version of the facts. More than just a dramatic expose of the intrigues surrounding these priceless documents, The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception presents nothing less than a new, highly significant perspective on Christianity.


Chicago Tribune Not for the theologically faint of heart. John Leonard New York Newsday A wonder of savage detail....The reading of the archaeological, historical and analytic-textual evidence is always ingenious. Publishers Weekly Crystalline, well-documented....Baigent and Leigh advance startling theories that should change the way we view ancient Judaism and nascent Christianity.... Antiquity (U.K.) An engrossing read....A racy tale of archaeological sins, religious bigotry, academic megalomania, misconduct and possible criminality, along with bizarre political intrigue. Newsweek A lively tale of one controversial interpretation of the scrolls.
