Re: DSS- Gnostic parellels?

The citation is: Louis Ginzberg, An Unknown Jewish Sect, NY 1976. Is a
translation from German, except for chapters 8 and 10 which were not
previously published. 

I too found the book a monument to Ginzberg's acumen and common sense, which
enabled him to understand the limited material at his disposal, little of
which has been disproven.
