PREFACE. 



The E-itual adopted by the Modern Or- 
der of Essenes is so long that it can only be 
learned and retained by constant attend- 
ance at the meetings, and as many are 
so situated that they cannot regularly 
attend, they soon forget much that they 
have learned, and thus lose interest in 
the subject, until their connection with 
the Order becomes merely nominal, or is 
entirely severed in default of the payment 
of dues. 

From this state of things arises the need 
and demand for some means of refreshing 
and aiding the memory, outside of the 
^, and for the want of an authentic w^ork 
on the subject, Essenes are availing them- 



IV PREFACE. 

selves of any means of information that 
comes within their reach ; hence the exten- 
sive sale of several open and highly errone- 
ous exposes, that are sold alike to membera 
of the Order and the public at large. To 
arrest this evil, and meet the demand for 
a work that is both accurate and legitimate, 
this volume has been prepared.

THE ANCIENT ESSENES. -ORIGIN OF THE 
ORDER. 



EssENE from the Hebrew root, ^ffis) (Esan, 
to be strong), ^^'^id:si (Essene) because they 
exhibited strength of mind, in enduring 
suffering, and in subduing the passions ; the 
Essenes"^ were an order of the Jews, and 
the fact that they developed themselves 
gradually, and at first imperceptibly, through 
intensifying the prevalent religious doc- 
trines, renders it impossible to say precisely 
at what time they were detached from the 
general body. Josephus, however, speaks . 
of them as existing in the days of Jonathan 
tlie Maccabsean, b.c. 143 (Ant. xiii. 5-9) ; 
he also mentions an Essene who delivered a 
prophecy in the reign of Aristobulus I., b.c. 

■ * See Josephus. — Kitto. 



106 (War i. 3-5; Ant. xiii. 11-2), and 
as we find no reliable record of them pre - 
vious to B.C. 150, that is doubtless very 
near the date of the origin of the Order. 

When thej ultimately withdrew from the 
rest of the Jewish nation, the majority of 
them settled in Samaria, along the Jordan, 
and the rest lived in scattered commmiities 
throughout Palestine. 

Both Philo and Josephus mention them 
as being very numerous at this time. 

They were divided into two classes — the 
first devoting themselves to a life of con- 
templation, and studying the mysteries of 
nature and revelation ; the second engag- 
ing in some daily handicraft. They were 
ruled by a Eabban, assisted by a Pabbi and 
a Eab,'^ who were chosen by the whole 
body. In cases of trial, however, a majority 
was required to constitute a tribunal, and 
the brother who walked disorderly was

Bab, " " " ^^, assistant teacher. 



excommunicated ; yet he was not regarded 
as an enemy, but was admonished as a 
brother, and usually received back, after 
due repentance. 

They divided the twenty-four hours into 
tln^ee parts : a portion of which was devot- 
ed to the service of God and the relief of 
the needy and distressed, a portion to their 
usual avocations, and a portion for refresh- 
ment and sleep. 

They rose at early dawn, and offered up 
the national prayer for the return of the 
light of day, after which they betook them- 
selves to their respective vocations and 
engagements, under the superintendence of 
the Eabbans and Overseers. At the sixth 
hour, or twelve o'clock, the labor of the 
forenoon terminated, and all reassembled, 
bathed in cold water, after which they 
put on their white garments, entered their 
refectory with as much solemnity as if it 
were the Holy Temple, and sat down together 
in mysterious silence to the common meal. 
When seated, the priest invoked God's bless- 
ing upon the repast, after which the baker 



placed before each one a small loaf of 
bread, and the cook a dish of plain food. 
At the conclusion of the meal the priest 
offered np thanks to the Bountiful Supplier 
of all our wants. This was the signal of 
their dismissal, when they withdrew, put 
off their white garments, and resumed labor 
again until the eleventh hour (or five 
o'clock,- as w^e reckon time). On the Sabbath 
they assembled in the synagogues, w^here 
they w^ere seated according to their age, the 
younger sitting below the elder in becom- 
ing attire, and listening with due attention 
Then one takes up the Sacred Volume and 
reads a portion, whilst a Kabbi expounds. 

But as they were completely esoteric in 
their doctrines, they omitted the most mys- 
terious portions, which were only taught in 
the Hadoth,"^ or place of secret meetings. 

As a sect they were distinguished by an 
aspiration after purity, and, like the Cha- 
sidim of earlier times, w^ere confounded in 

* Hadoth, from tlie Hebrew Ti^i^Jn? ^ place of 
secret meetingj or meeting by appointment.

tlie popular estimation with the great body 
of the zealous observers of the law. The 
growth of Essenism was a natural result of 
the religious feeling which was called out 
by the circumstances of the Greek domin- 
ion, and it is easy to trace the process by 
which it was matured. 

From the Maccabsean age there was a 
continuous effort among the stricter Jews 
to attain an absolute standard of Holiness. 
Each class of devotees was looked upon as 
practically impure by their successors, who 
carried the laws of purity still further; 
and the Essenes stood at the extreme limit 
of the mystic asceticism, w^hich was thus 
gradually reduced to shape. 

As an Order they were distinguished 
by the following principles and observ- 
ances : — 

A love of truth and sobriety; love to 
God and man, made manifest by religious 
zeal and kindly acts towards each other; 
always aiding the needy — and to this end 
they had stewards in every place where 
they dwelt, to supply needy brethren 



10 

with food and raiment, and as a means of 
recognition they had certain signs and pass- 
words, by which they presently recognized 
each other. 

They were divided into three grades, or 
ranks, and when a candidate applied for 
admission his character was scrutinized 
with the greatest severity, and if fonnd 
worthy, he was admitted to tlie first grade, 
when he was presented with a white gar- 
ment and girdle. He then remained in 
a state of probation and trial for one year, 
dnring which time, although he lived ac- 
cording to their customs, he was not ad- 
mitted to their secret meetings. At the 
termination of this period he was advanced 
to the second rank, with its consequent 
rights and privileges; but he was not ad- 
mitted to full fellowship with them until 
after another year of probation, when, if 
still found worthy, he was advanced to the 
third rank, and invested with all of the 
signs, pass- words, and privileges of the 
Order. 

On his admission he was required to 



11 

take upon himself a solemn oath or ob- 
lio-ation, the heads of which were as fol- 
lows : — 

To exercise piety towards God and justice 
towards men ; to slum the wicked and emu- 
late the good ; to show fidelity and obedience 
to those in authority ; to be a lover of truth 
and a reprover of falsehood; to keep his 
hands clean from theft, and his soul from un- 
lawful gains ; to conceal nothing from the 
Order, nor disclose any of their secrets to 
any one in any other manner than he receiv- 
ed them himself ; and, lastly, to carefully 
guard and preserve the Sacred Books and 
Symbols belonging to the Order. 

Modern Essenism. 
On the revival of Essenism and its intro- 
duction into this country, the principles of 
the ancient sect were adopted by the new 
Order here as a basis of their creed and 
government, together with the following 
Eitual,^ which is liere given to assist us 

* While the modern order has retained the name 
(Essenes) and principles of the ancient sect, still it 



13 

in hecoming hright and zealous workers 
on tliat symbolic structure here below, 
to the end that we all may be the 
better enabled to eventually enter that 
Spiritual Building — that 'House not made 
with hands, eternal in the heavens. 

Now, as in the ancient time, the candi- 
date for admission to the Order has to pass 
through a novitiate of two stages of twelve 
months each. 

On his admission to the first grade, 
the following rites and ceremonies are ob- 
served : — 

First. The Uabban ascends the dais and 

. calls the brethren to order, and commands 

the Rab to see that all of the approaches to 

the Iladoth are duly guarded, so that the 

profane may not gain admission. 

Then the Eabbi invokes the blessing of 

was found necessary to materially modify the ritual, 
in order to adapt it to the present state of civilization. 
The rites and ceremonies of this Order likewise essen- 
tially differ from those practised by a society of 
Essenes in this country, who are strictly a religious, 
sect.

Deity on their labors (during which time 
all in reverence bow), and closes with Amen, 
to which all respond, Amen. So mote it be. 

After which the liabban thus addresses 
the Sawai :- — 

Kaeban. — Br. Sawai. 

Sawai. — Wfl. Rabban. 

Eabb AN. — ^Where did our ancient brethren 
meet ? 

Sw. — lu Synagogues and in the Iladoth, 
or place of secret meeting. 

E.ABBAN. — ^What was the manner of teach- 
ing among Ancient Essenes ? 

Sw. — They taught their more important 
doctrines in secret, and philosophized on 
most tilings in symbols. 

Eabban. — ^Where do Essenes meet at the 
present day ? 

Sw.-^— In the Hadoth. 

* Many of the words in this Eitual have been abbre- 
viated. This has been done for two reasons. First, 
to present the subject in as condensed and conve- 
nient a form as possible. Second, as it renders the 
reading somewhat difficult, it will the better fix the 
va/riou8 rites and ceremonies in the memory. 



14 



Rabban. — How do we illustrate the impor. 
tant truths prtnng to our dctr'ns ? 

Sw. — By symbols. 

Eabban. — Wliy arewe assembled to-uight? 

Sw. — It was ihe custom among Ancient 
Essenes to meet at regTilar and stated peri- 
ods for instruction, also to initiate candi- 
dates into the msts. of Essenism. We are 
thus assembled to-night. 

Eabban. — How many const't a quorum in 
the Hadoth ? 

Sw. — ^Nine or more. 

Eabban. — ^Wlien cmpsd. of nine, of whom 
do they consist ? 

Sw. — The E-abban, Eabbi, Eab, Sawai, 
Jawaij Sadain, Jadain, S. M. C, and J. M. 
C. 

Kabban. — Have we a quorum to-night ? 

Sw. — I will call the roll of officers and as- 
certain (calls the roll). We have a quorum,

SUCCOTH. 



When the Patriarch Jacob was on his way 
from Peniel to Shechem, he made booths 
for shelter during a halt in the Jordan 
valley, which gave the name to the place — • 
Succoth (booths). In the distribution among 
the Tribes, Succoth fell to the Tribe of 
Gad, and was therefore on the East side of 
the Jordan. 

The people refused to assist Gideon on his 
pursuit of the Midianite Sheiks Zebah and 
Zalmunna, and 77 of their chief rulers were 
killed by him on his return. (Judges viii.) 

The vessels of the Temple were cast 
in the clay grounds between Succoth 



84 

and Zeredathah ;* this place was not 
far from Jericho, in the valley of the 
Jordan {KiJckar), The deep clay banks 
are well adapted for moulding and casting 
large and fine work, and the clay is now 
carried away for such purposes to Jerusalem 
and other cities. 

The view is in the valley of Jordan, 
looking South towards the Dead Sea, from 
a point a few miles North of Jericho, where 
Zarthan is now located, at the hill of Kum 
Surtabeh. 

*■ 2 Chron., iv. 17, Zeredathah.

THE ESSENES' GATE. 



The importance and influence of the 
Order of Essenes is seen in the fact of a 
gate of the city of Jerusalem being named 
after them. 

The Gate of the Essenes (described by 
Josephus, Wars, v. iv. ; 2) was on Zion, 
as you go south from the present Zion gate, 
following the path around the tomb of 
David. A slight depression of the ground is 
perceptible near the brow of the hill looking 
south towards the valley of Hinnom ; at 
this spot was the Gate of the Essenes. 
There are no ruins above ground, and no 
•elics of any kind remaining from which to 
form an idea of its appearance. 



218 
THE GATES OF THE TEMPLE.* 

THE SOUTH GATE. 

In the south wall of the Temple area is a 
double gate, now walled up, and called the 
Fluldah Gate (from the Talmud). This is 
built of very large stones, especially inside, 
and has an entrance hall 50 feet long by 40 
wide, leading to a passage (by a flight of 
nine stone steps) 250 feet long, which (by 
another flight of three steps) conducts tc 
the area above. 

" In the centre of the entrance hall there is 
a column formed of a single block oi 
marble, which supports the spring of four 
arches (on which rest four domes) ; the 
height is 21 feet, and the diameter 6 feet and 
3 inches. There is no monument of anti- 
quity in Jerusalem that is more interesting 
than this relic of the Jewish builders of the 
days of Solomon. 

* The works of the following scholars and travellers 
may be referred to on this subject : 
City of the Great King. Dr. Barclay. 
Robinson's Biblical Besearches^ and 
Rawson's Bible Hand-book.

THE WEST GATE. 



A few years since. Dr. Barclay (City 
of the Great King, page 489) dicovered, 
after it had been hidden by rubbish and 
buildings, the west gate of the Temple. 
The engraving shows only a part of the 
lintel of this gate, and only this much can 
be seen, for the authorities have not yet 
permitted a further examination of the 
place. The stone shown measures 20 feet 
long by 6 feet 9 inches thick. The Temple 
site, about twenty feet above the inside of 
the gateway, is occupied by modern build- 
ings, which hide nearly all the ancient work, 
only leaving bare the arched top and edge 
of the lintel. 



220 



THE EAST GATE. 



The entrance to the Temple enclosure on 
the east is now walled up and kept closed 
by the Mohammedans, because of a supersti- 
tious fear that the Christians will enter the 
city by that gate and drive them out. 

The style is ancient, and its interior is 
ornamented with rich and elaborate car- 
vings in the Grecian style. 

The length is 70 feet, and breadth 55, and 
it projects 6 feet beyond the wall ; two 
3olumns divdde it into a double arcade, 
lighted at the west end by two domes. 
The effect is grand and imposing. 

The columns are formed out of a single 
block of marble, and the walls are eleven 
feet thick. A grand stairway of massive 
stone blocks leads from the gate up to the 
platform, which is 25 feet above. 

The Crusaders called this the GOLDEN 
GATE (Porta Aurea). 




EAST GATE. 



221 




ANCIENT TALENT.* 
The Talent was a denomination or 
weight of gold, silver, or copper, usually of 
a circular form. At the time of the build- 
ing of the Temple its weight and value was 
as follows : 

f The Hebrew Gold Talent weighed.. .1,320,000 grs. 
** ^' SUver *'• '' 660,000 '' 

"• Persian Gold " " 400,000 '' 

** Babylonian Silver Talent wei^-hed 959,000 ** 
( ** American Gold Dollar, coinage of 

1855 25.8") 

* The Talent (133) means a circle or globe, here 

denoting a circular mass of metal, or aggregate sum. 

f See Kitto — Smith's Dictionary of the Bible, and 
Rawson's Bible Hand-book.
