    Default Really cool website

    I wanted to alert you all about a fantastic website called InscriptiFact. It contains a very large collection (which continues to grow daily) of all things related to Biblical Studies. You can access extremely high-quality photos taken in different lights, angles, of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the major Greek manuscripts, Semitic inscriptions, Ugaritic material, Sumerian--everything. They even include Aramaic incantation bowls, latin epigraphy, proto-Sinaitic inscriptions, Nabatean, etc...

    This is a great opportunity to access the primary data of the ancient Near East and Mediterranean world--something that has only been recently made available. Although looking at the texts/tablets that we study may appear to only be the obligatory excersize for academics, I would strongly encourage those of you in more church-related ministries to take a look at this. After all, the people of The Book Which Can't Be Named lived in a context.

    This is a really fantastic website and I encourage you to check it out. It's mainly run through USC and you have to fax in a request for a username/password.

    USC = University of Southern California. It's a fairly large (and prestigious) college with a good football team.

    Default Usc?

    Hi Jake.
    Not all contributors to this website are American.
    However, I have heard of Chico University and I have purchased 2 books in the Harvard University bookshop when I visited Boston in 2003.

    Well I shall now that I am aware of it! If only BW had the Hebrew inscriptions, though!
