Decodes the system of measurements encrypted on the Copper Scroll that has confounded scholars for over 50 years. Most of the book addresses the parts of the copper scroll the author feels that reference other sites in the Mid-East and his extremely detailed, overlong retelling of history.

Decodes the system of measurements encrypted on the Copper Scroll that has confounded scholars for over 50 years. I wasn't interested in all that, so I found myself skipping sections here and there. Not a bad read that may someday be proven partially right or all wrong.

The premise is that the Copper Scroll, a very really scroll from the Dead Sea Scrolls, is a treasure map. That's pretty clear from what's written on it and from its existence. Copper was expensive. Anything written on it must have been important. According to Feather’s conspiratorial views, the Essenes were Hebrew priests who preserved an original style of Egyptian Judaism.

Decodes the system of measurements encrypted on the Copper Scroll that has confounded scholars for over 50 years, leading to the identification of fabulous lost treasures. Points to a radical new understanding of the origins of monotheism. The famous Dead Sea Scrolls comprise the oldest collection of Biblical documents ever discovered. Of the Dead Sea Scrolls, none has baffled experts more than the 2,000-year-old Copper Scroll, discovered in 1952 by a team of Bedouin led by Henri de Contenson of the Ecole Biblique in East.

The Dead Sea Scrolls comprise the oldest collection of Biblical documents ever discovered. None has baffled experts more than the 2,000-year-old Copper Scroll discovered in 1952, apparently a list of buried treasure. The author's findings reveal locations of many of the treasures. Introduces a radical new perspective on the historical foundations of monotheism, based on the enigma of the Copper Scroll of the Essenes.

The Lost Treasures of Akhenaten. Cracking the code of the copper scroll. The translations of 3Q15 – the copper scroll. The final hiding place. Plate 4 Detail from an inscription on the east wall of the Tomb of Nefer-Seshem-Ptah at Saqqara, from Une Rue de Tombeaux a Saqqarah, Volume II by Jean Capart, Vromont & C. Brussels, 1907, reproduced courtesy of The Egypt Exploration Society.

Establishes the Egyptian roots of Judaic monotheism. I loved reading this book the author has done a lot of reserch about the subject, it was always intriguing it was like being on a mystical treasure hunt. Though found at Qumran, the copper scroll lists treasures hidden in Akhenaten's city, modern Tel-el-Amarna, Egypt. As a metalurgist and scholar Feather brings intelligence and knowledge together to establish the Egyptian source of this enigmatic artifact. If you like reading about akhehnaten this is something different from the usual akhenaten books. Well done Robert Feather.

the most different script, 'The Copper Scroll' was found in the Cave-3 which is the oldest man-created biblical script till to this date. Also, it is the only existing script that was crafted on metal (copper-sheet) rather than on parchment (skin) or papyrus. The scripts are widely known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Among these scripts, the most different and strange, 'The Copper Scroll' was found in the Cave-3 which is believed to be the oldest man-created biblical script till to this date.

Introduces a radical new perspective on the historical foundations of monotheism, based on the enigma of the Copper Scroll of the Essenes. • Confirms the link between ancient Judaism and the pharoah Akhenaten. • Decodes the system of measurements encrypted on the Copper Scroll that has confounded scholars for over 50 years, leading to the identification of fabulous lost treasures.• Points to a radical new understanding of the origins of monotheism. The famous Dead Sea Scrolls comprise the oldest collection of Biblical documents ever discovered. Of the Dead Sea Scrolls, none has baffled experts more than the 2,000-year-old Copper Scroll, discovered in 1952 by a team of Bedouin led by Henri de Contenson of the Ecole Biblique in East Jerusalem. Appearing to be a list of buried treasure engraved on copper pieces, the Copper Scroll is considered to be the work of a secretive Jewish sect of devout Essenes, who lived by the Dead Sea around the time of Jesus. No one has been able to explain its meaning or discover any of the 64 locations where the Biblical treasures it lists were buried. Robert Feather, combining his background as a metallurgist with his journalistic expertise, has unraveled the enigma of the Copper Scroll in a fascinating study that takes the reader on a journey from ancient Mesopotamia, through Canaan, into Egypt, and back to the shores of the Dead Sea. His exploration links the scroll to the ancient Egyptian king Akhenaten, confirming a long suspected influence of this pharaoh's religious beliefs on those of the Hebrews. The author's findings not only reveal the locations of most of the treasures listed on the Copper Scroll, but they also point to a radical new understanding of the origins of monotheism--the basis of the three great religions of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.

I have read this once and will be reading it again (and possibly again). I love that the author is a metallurgist primarily and such has no agenda to make the history revealed around the Qumran Essenes and the Dead Sea Scrolls adhere to one doctrine or another. It makes perfect sense with so many biblical patriarchs influenced greatly by Egypt to compare the religion and tradition of Egypt with that of Judaism and it took someone like Feather, with no ulterior motives, so to speak, to do so. This is a gripping book that I found hard to put down and it is so full of knowledge it definitely can't be absorbed in one reading. Plus he straightens out the amount of treasure described by the scroll by attributing it to an Egyptian measuring system, which tracks much better in his estimation with the known amount of gold and other precious metals in circulation at that point in human history.

I've been fascinated with the life and times of the Pharaoh Akhenaten since I was a kid. This author's attempt to make a connection with the copper text that may serve in part as a textual treasure map to some of the valuables that were and/are still hidden in the ruins of Akhenaten's ruined city is an exciting prospect to me. I saw a documentary on cable TV in which the author went to a few of the spots in Akhetaten (aka Amarna), the city in question, and shared his frustration that no one was permitted to even do a little investigating to see if there really is something still concealed there. Some treasures have already been found in Akhetaten in places that appear to fit the text of the copper scroll almost perfectly, so maybe someday the Egyptian government will allow Barry Kemp or another archaeologist to check out these spots.

I found this book dull reading except for the parts that directly addressed Akhenaten and his city. I also found felt the author glossed over the facts at times to make his imagined scenarios fit his overall picture. A fair amount of the info about Akhenaten's religious beliefs was quasi-factual or what the author wants to believe.

Most of the book addresses the parts of the copper scroll the author feels that reference other sites in the Mid-East and his extremely detailed, overlong retelling of history. I wasn't interested in all that, so I found myself skipping sections here and there.

Not a bad read that may someday be proven partially right or all wrong. Only time will tell. At least there are no aliens in this book's much more realistic suppositions. We've had far too much of that from so many other authors. I like history and fantasy, but not when they are intertwined with inaccuracy in order to sell more books.

Most of the book is about biblical archaeology and possible Egyptian roots of Jewish monotheism. The title refers to that one copper scroll found among the Dead Sea scrolls, but the book doesn't shed much light on the mystery or mysteries about it. I kept expecting to read something like an isotope analysis of the copper pointing to where it was mined and smelted, but apparently nobody's done that.

I by no means ascribe wholeheartedly to the views given by Robert Feather, but they are certainly many facets to his propositions that will certainly spurn further research. I am more of the opinions of so-called biblical minimalists in viewing the historical veracity of the Old Testament as moot; with much having been composed at the Library of Alexandria during the Hellenistic Period. However, that is not to say that information gleaned from Egypt as a whole was not kept within the Library and mitigated by a select group of scribes. I am also not so critical of Feather's assessments of Elephantine. It was quite a wonderful read.

If you're the type of person who likes a good treasure hunt, than this is the book for you. Robert Feather has compiled a wealth of information about Egypt and the Holy lands in a nutshell. This book is valuable for both legitimate archaeological research organizations, or for amateurs like me who simply love to study the ancient texts. Robert Feather also gives full credit to John Allegro as few modern scholars do. It's disgraceful how many modern authors on Dead Sea Scroll topics never mention John Allegro or just include his name in a single footnote. As a scientist Robert Feather creates a matrix of the calendars, languages, writing systems, weights and measures, and many other attributes of the place and time. With this data properly organized he's able to correlate the exact amount of precious metal mentioned in the some of the copper scroll's inventory, with past archaeological discoveries. The framework created is elegant and harmonizes many other elements of the Holy Lands and Egypt. Bravo!

Although this book was first published almost 10 years ago, recent discoveries at Qumran make it even more important today for us to correctly understand that the history of ALL Western religions (Judaism, Catholicism, Protestant and Islam) began in Egypt. While substantial evidence has now been accumulated to clearly establish that the root and foundation of monotheism, and especially Judaism, come directly from the 18th Dynasty Egyptian pharaohs, culminating in Akhenaten's decree and move of the Egyptian capital to Amarna, current theologians are extremely reluctant to concede or even discuss this fact in an open forum. Shame on them all. Robert Feather is an outstanding scholar. This book is an absolute MUST-READ for anyone interested in understanding the true roots and beginning of Western monotheism. It didn't begin with Abraham and the Old Testament patriarchs as is now incorrectly declared. That is a modern myth. Don't believe me? Read the confirming evidence in this important book.

This is an excellent resource for the classes that I teach.
I have read other books on the copper scroll found in the '50s. I have not read this new book yet but a looking forward to spending a day or two reading it. I would buy other items from this group of sellers as the book came packaged in excellent condition, very fast response/delivery in a few days.
