Étienne Nodet o.p. is a French dominican priest, is Professor of Intertestamental Studies at the École Biblique, Jerusalem. His main project is a new edition of the Jewish Antiquities of Josephus. This "highway" has a lot of "exits", hence several books and articles on Biblical, Jewish and Christian topics.

Description

I suggest a historical outline in the Hellenistic period in six steps: on the identity of the Egyptian Moses; on a definite Egyptian connection; on Babylon and the Pharisees; on the non-lunar calendar common to the Sadducees and Essenes; on the Essene components in Rabbinic traditions; and finally, on the Essenes as heirs of the Egyptian Therapeuts.
