Josephus & DSS

I am a humble graduate student who would appreciate learning from the scholars
on this list how the discrepancies between the Essenes described by Josephus and
the policies and procedures of the sect depicted by the scrolls found at Qumran
are accounted for by those who say that the Qumran community was Essene.   (I
know this will seem a very basic and naive question to most list recipients, but
that should make it, I imagine, very easy to answer.)

I would appreciate comments, references, and information on how to access the
list archives if this subject has already been dealt with at length by the list.
(Also the list archives in general, since I would like to study past discussions
regarding Pesher Nahum.)

Many thanks...
