Description Primitive Christianity, Vol. 3 de Otto Pfleiderer:

Excerpt from Primitive Christianity, Vol. 3: Its Writings and Teachings in Their Historical Connections The Therapeutae are described by Philo in his work Concerning the Contemplative Life. Their name, he says, was derived either from their being physicians of souls or from their rendering service to God. The latter is no doubt the true explanation- just as many religious associations in contemporary heathendom called themselves cult ores deorum, this Jewish order gave themselves the name of Therapeutae, which has a similar significance. Like the Bacchants and Corybants, Philo says, they were enthusiasts, transported by heavenly love. In their yearning for the immortal and blessed life they looked on their mortal life as already done with- they therefore made over their property to their relatives or friends, left their brethren, children, wives, parents, relatives and friends, and their ancestral cities, and withdrew, from fear of dangerous intercourse with men of the world, into gardens or lonely country places outside the walls.
