The dome-shaped structure housing the greatest manuscript of all time has left its imprint on Jerusalem’s cityscape and millennia-old history.

One of greatest archaeological finds of the last century was accidently discovered in the remote caves overlooking Qumran by a passing Bedouin shepherd. The Israel Museum’s Shrine of the Book offers a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with the oldest Bible manuscripts in existence, also known as the Dead Sea Scrolls.
