Thought of the day: Hippolytos on the Essenes

According to Hippolytos (170-235 AD), the Essenes were so strict in keeping the Sabbath that they spent the whole day in bed! Slight exaggerations aside, this perspective on the Essenes sounds pretty darn attractive, if you ask me!

This just in - I've converted to extreme Essenism.
