Re: DSS- Gnostic parellels?
You might want to check out the Karaites. They were Jews that
rejected Rabbinic authority. They may have perpetuated an adapted
forms of Essene philosophy. There was some speculation on this
prior to 1948 on their possible connection to the Zodakite
fragments. The fact that the Damascus Doc. survived in the Chairo
Genizah dictates that some Essene thought survived upto the Middle
"Zodakite Fragments" by Solomon Schechter, I think this was
the book that drew a Karaite link.
