Christian David Ginsburg was an English Masoretic scholar born in Warsaw in 1831. "He was converted in 1846, and was for a time connected with the Liverpool branch of the London Society's Mission to the Jews, but retired in 1863, devoting himself entirely to literary work.

Hayyim's 'Introduction to the Rabbinic Bible' in the same year. - 1906 JE.

Being much fewer in number than thePhariseesand theSadducees (the other two major sects at the time) , the Essenes lived in various cities but congregated in communal life dedicated toasceticism(some groups practiced celibacy) , voluntary poverty, anddaily immersion. Many separate but related religious groups of that era shared similarmystic, eschatological, messianic, andasceticbeliefs.
