Re: response to D.J. Kaufman

>2) To the best of my knowledge, Philo (who, of course, lived in Egypt) does
not link Essenes (or the Therapeutae) with the Jewish temple in Egypt.
Again correct. By the time he was writing the Essenes or Essaioi may have
split off from the group in Egypt.<

 Can someone remind us of the precise location of this "temple in Egypt", and
also of the precise centuries during which it was known to be attended and
functioning.  Does Philo mention visiting it, for instance?
