Book Description

5 Jun 2000

At last a lone metallurgist has successfully decoded the mysterious Copper Scroll that has baffled scholars since its discovery in 1952.

In his extraordinary research of the Copper Scroll, Robert Feather has made two amazing but interlinked discoveries:

Part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, The Copper Scroll is an elaborate treasure map, listing 64 coded locations were gold, silver, beautifully crafted jewellery and ritual clothing were hidden over 2,000 years ago. This news will cause great excitement amongst archaeologists throughout the world. In 1959 & 1960 John Allegro of Manchester University led unsuccessul trips to find the treasure. His following translation of the Scroll. Robert Feather has now filled in the missing pieces of the puzzle.

The accumulation of significant new research to back the old but neglected theory that the origins of the world’s three great monotheistic religions can all be traced to Ancient Egypt and in particular to the Pharoah Akhenaten. The book will show why it makes such sense that Moses was in fact an Egyptian and answer many other historical anomalies & puzzles.

Professor George Brooke of Manchester University who recently organised the Copper Scroll exhibition in Manchester supports Robert Feather’s findings and has written the foreword.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Since the Copper Scroll was discovered in 1952, its contents have baffled scholars the world over…until now. Painstaking research by professional metallurgist, Robert Feather, has uncovered the Copper scroll's meaning and opened up a vault of hidden treasure.

One of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Copper Scroll is an elaborate treasure map, listing 64 coded locations where gold, silver, beautifully crafted jewellery and ritual clothing were hidden over 2,000 years ago.

The Dead Sea Scrolls record the activities and sacred writings of a secretive Jewish sect – the Qumran Essenes – who lived at the time of Jesus. Not only has Robert Feather's decoding of the Copper Scroll led to a discovery of beautiful artefacts, but he has also unearthed another more controversial treasure – an ancient link between the Essenes and the most advanced, wealthy civilisation in the ancient world – the Egyptians. These connections will profoundly challenge our most fundamental beliefs in the origins of Western religions.

Robert Feather writes in a clear and intelligent style, presenting his thesis in a way which makes each page compulsive reading.
I read it a few chapters at a time - there was so much to think about in what he had to say - and I looked forward with great anticipation to picking up the story line again to see what else might be revealed.
The alternative history which emerges is entirely credible and fills some of the gaps in the stories in the Bible which have always been a puzzle to thinkers.
It deserved a better imprint as it is a serious study. I am pleased to give it top rating and recommend it to any like me, who might be searching to make sense of faith and history.

A readable and thought-provoking interpretation of the Copper Scroll which highlights the way in which the modern world has borrowed syncretically from the monotheism of the pharaoh Akhenaten.

This excellent and information-packed interpretation is written by the man who helped date the Spear of Christ, which is housed in the Hofsburg Museum in Vienna.

The Copper Scroll is a list of treasures and the treasures are in a Temple; most scholars now agree on this point. But Robert Feather brings a completely new understanding to the puzzle by demonstrating quite convincingly that the Temple is not in Jerusalem as was believed and in doing so, he unveil a new an extremely interesting reading of the Old Testament.

Suddenly, the Patriarchs are real persons and their link to Egypt, the most advanced civilization of that time far closer than expected. Among the treasures they brought out of Pharaoh's Egypt, there may have been some gold, but far more important and long lasting would be ideas. The most extraordinary one of course is monotheism; but what is amazing is that although the idea was probably born there, it didn't survive on the shore of the Nile much beyond the reign of Akhenaten, an exceptional Pharaoh in his own right.

What Robert Feather offers is a new paradigm to understand the early history of the Hebrews; a construction which I believe will help improve our knowledge of the Holy Book by providing a context which suddenly makes everything clearer and more intelligible.

Theologians and some historians will undoubtedly criticize this book: it is unavoidable. If Moses was an Egyptian prince with a fully formed religious doctrine, then, clearly there must be some inaccuracies in the follow up story of his life. This is unsettling. But the proper of a good theory is to offer a simple, compelling framework based on facts. History is unfortunately not so straightforward and more than anywhere else, you need to follow clues. But the clues that Robert Feather has unearthed are so strong and his story so convincing, that the ball is now in their camp.
