Re: orion Chanukah and Tefillin

Dear David,
	Is retrojecting rabbinic presuppositions (or any other later set)
what historians should do?
	For instance, when was the term "minim" first used in the sense of
heretics (or minut=heresy, in the sense not merely of a group choice but of
a disapproved group)? When writing of the 160s BCE, is this usage
