1 Commercial website Amazon.com advertises ten Dead Sea Scrolls videos and sev- eral hundred books on the subject. It is not always easy to distinguish academic scrolls projects from those oriented toward conspiracy theories, since both types tend to have exotic or dramatic titles. “Secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls,” for example, is produced by University of Georgia Anthropology (2000), while “Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls Exposed” is a product of UFO Video, Inc. (1999). Even major production com- panies vary in the content or agenda of their videos. The Discovery Home Video pro- duction “Dead Sea Scrolls: Unraveling the Mystery” (2000) focuses on the use of sci- enti fi c tools for the study of the scrolls by Brigham Young University students. In contrast, Discovery’s “Riddle of the Dead Sea Scrolls” (1998) centers on the theories of B. Thiering (on whose work, see below). The “Ancient Mysteries” series is a product of A & E Home Video (1999). For further discussion of video productions, see G.J.
