Friedländer’s On the Origin of Christianity ...[1894], Part 10

{p.95} We recall the DVC repeatedly emphasizes the outsized role Allegory played for the Therapeuts. In this regard, the following passage is particularly important: “The interpretation of the Holy Scripture aims to explore the deeper meaning through Allegory, because for these men the whole of The ...

{p.92} ceremonies, and thereby become rulers of the whole of what had become a vast diaspora. The most extreme trend of Alexandrian Judaism, however, was paid homage to by Therapeutism, which demolished all stifling and restrictive religious forms and spiritualized the Mosaic. As DVC reports, this l...

Friedländer’s On the Origin of Christianity ...[1894], Part 7

{p.85} Another infallible prop for the ‘Christian’ character of the Therapeuts is to be seen in the fact that DVC also speaks of Therapeutides. This participation of women in an ascetic-philosophical way of life” – says Lucius – “a position that is equal to that of men in the Therapeut colony, remai...

Friedländer’s On the Origin of Christianity ...[1894], Part 6

Similarly, Philo remarks in another place: “Among men, some attach to the devotion of the Soul, others to the Body. The companions of the Soul, who are able to associate with the incorporeal natures, appreciable only by the intellect, do not compare the True Being with any species of created beings,...

Friedländer’s On the Origin of Christianity ...[1894], Part 4

{p.72} Christianity), which here and there can only be quietly echoed, but not from his present. How difficult it all became for our Church instructor, to strip the Therapeuts of their Jewish character and clothe them for Christianity, is shown by the fact that – in order to dispel doubts that may a...

Friedländer’s On the Origin of Christianity ...[1894], Part 3

{p.68} Philo's silence is more important. Although the opportunity to do so repeatedly appeared in his works, the Therapeuts are nowhere mentioned as in De Vita Contemplativa, from which – at first glance – it was rightly concluded that he did not know the Therapeuts: that is, they did not exist. Bu...

Friedländer’s On the Origin of Christianity ...[1894], Part 2
