The aim of the paper is to introduce the newly formulated project (which has the published Qumran Biblical Scrolls as subject matter) to the scientific world. The CATSS data base was used as point of departure for the development of the Qumran data base. The parallel text (Hebrew-Greek) is adapted in that the Greek column is deleted and all the deviations between MT and a given scroll are descriptionbed in eight columns. Unique sigla is utilized in order to depict all possible differences. With the help of dBase III + (which is also used for the other aspects of the research) specific criteria is then extracted from the data base. Examples of such criteria treated in the paper are those concerning scribal activity corrections and the interchange of consonants) as well as some pertaining to the orthography and language of specific scrolls.
