Since the archaeological discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1946, the word Essene has made its way around the world, often raising a lot of questions. Many people were astonished to discover that, two thousand years ago, a brotherhood of holy men, living together in a community, carried within themselves all of the seeds of Christianity and of future western civilization. This brotherhood, more or less persecuted and ostracized, would bring forth people who would change the face of the world and the course of history. Indeed, almost all of the principal founders of what would later be called Christianity were Essenes, St. Ann, Joseph and Mary, John the Baptist, Jesus, John the Evangelist, etc. -- Anonymous Reviewer
From the Author
From my heart, I dedicate this book to Steven Spielberg for his film "Schindler's List"-which, beyond its historical aspect, shows so clearly what humanity is heading towards if nothing is done to bring about the triumph of the inner light, which turns the physical man into a true Man in spirit and in life. Olivier Manitara.
