Subjects:
Jewish sects.
Summary:
The thesis advanced in this work is that the model of a secret or esoteric group is fruitful for studying various movements and groups in the Greco-Roman world. This is worked out in the extremely interesting case of the Essenes and the Qumran covenanters, for which we have available not only outsider descriptions but also the very documents that embody at least part of their secret teachings.
