Re: orion And about their bowel habits . . .

I hate to do this, but I wrote an article dead on Josephus's account of
essene defecation practice, comparing it with what was then known from
Qumran (Temple Scroll). It is in Jewish History 10. 
On another point, as long as I am writing, I strongly second the plea not
to use the term "halakha" for the Qumran community. I think it is
inappropriate, for all the reasons S. Goranson noted.
