The Damascus Crowns

A collection of Hebrew Manuscripts known as “The Damascus Crowns” went on display recently for a few hours.  The Damascus Crowns are held at The Israel’s National Library.  The word “crown” is a Hebrew word used to describe important and venerable biblical manuscripts.

According to a news release by the Associated Press, “The oldest of the Damascus Crowns was written in the late 10th century A.D. in what is now Israel. Because it shows the influence of two rival schools of textual scholars, it has provided modern researchers with important information on how the Biblical text evolved.”
