          Abstract

          The article demonstrates, by means of the analysis of a few pages of Baigent & Leigh’s bestseller The dead Sea Scrolls Deception, that the authors wittingly twisted their sources in support of Eisenman’s theory of James the Righteous as a zealot ‘opposition high priest’, who should be identified as the ‘Teacher of Righteousness’ mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The analysis consists in a close collation of Eusebius’ account of the murder of James ( Hist. Eccl. II, 23, 4-24) with the way the authors quote and interprete this text: it leads to the conclusion that they made a well-considered attempt to mislead the general public.
