They labor with great diligence till the fifth hour, after which they assemble themselves into one place, and when they have clothed themselves in white veils, they bath their bodies in cold water, and after this purification is over they meet together in an apartment of their own ... while they go in a pure manner, into the dining room as into a certain holy temple ...
(Josephus Flavius, The War of the Jews 2.8.5).

Members of the sect were strict in their observance of the laws of ritual purity and maintained seven ritual baths located mostly in the vicinity of the refectory.
