    Google is digitizing history.

    The Mountain View-based search company is putting portions of the Dead Sea Scrolls online, which contain some of the oldest known copies of the biblical documents.

    Google is making five of the scrolls available as high-resolution images. The original documents were written on parchment and papyrus.

    To make the scrolls more accessible to a wider audience, Google is also offering English translations of the scrolls from their original Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic.
