III. Horus in the Akhet: The Religious Meaning of the Great Sphinx

2020 •

Christian Irigaray

Inscriptions from the New Kingdom relate that the Great Sphinx was regarded as an image of Horemakhet. In this study we focus on the religious meaning of Horus in the Akhet in the context of the Heliopolitan Cosmogony, as well as the initiatory context of the Pyramid Texts, Coffin Texts, and the Book of the Dead. We also cover the feline deities associated to the Sphinx: Sekhmet, Bastet, Ruty, Aker, etc.

Naukratis: Egyptian offerings in context

Naukratis: Egyptian offerings in context (2019)

2019 •

Aurelia Masson-Berghoff (Masson)

The Naukratis Project brought to light the underestimated Egyptian aspect of the Naukratite material culture, helping to outline the contemporaneous existence of different systems of beliefs – and their possible interaction or separation – in the cosmopolitan city. This paper focuses especially on contexts in which Egyptian votive and/or ritual objects were consecrated or deposited. Two particularly rich contexts are considered here, the ‘cache of bronzes’ discovered by Flinders Petrie in 1885, and deposits excavated in the vicinity of the Great Temenos by Francis Llewellyn Griffith in 1885 and David Hogarth in 1903. All yielded Late Period material. Despite the many challenges that the recontextualisation of these finds presents, these contexts offer a unique insight into Egyptian religious practices and beliefs at Naukratis. A few Egyptian votives discovered within Greek sanctuaries will be briefly mentioned. These recontextualised offerings will be assessed in the light of what we know of religious practices and beliefs at the site and beyond, in order to measure to what extent Naukratis fits the (Lower) Egyptian religious picture in the Late Period.

Gods in Ancient Egypt

2016 •

Oskar Kaelin

The ancient Egyptians were surrounded by various manifestations of their many gods. Though their gods usually lived in heaven or in the netherworlds, they were permanently represented on earth by monuments, statues, symbols, animals, and plants, as well as by social concepts. The Egyptians described their gods by various names and images, always aware that in the end their true personalities and characters remained elusive.The ancient Egyptian universe comprised heaven, earth, and netherworld, all part of creation and surrounded by eternal darkness. Though separate areas, they were permeable for the gods and the dead. The universe ran smoothly as long as there was respect and cooperation between them and the living. This formed an ideological, social, and economic cohesion.The gods were powerful but benevolent, and approachable in many ways. The divine king was the hub between the world of the gods and the human sphere. He was the main entity responsible for organizing the supply an...
