Please excuse my ignorance, but I am under the impression that most
of the leading DSS scholars (i.e. Eisenman, Golb, et.al.) state that
Qumaran period II residents were not Essenes at all, but a more militant
group of nationalists. Is this not the case?
I am aware that this may not be a proper topic for this list. If so,
please email me personally with any comments or suggested references
for me to pursue.
