The graves at Thebes in Egypt, belonged to a master builder of the Amon temple in the time of Thutmosis IV, a purveyor of sweets in Amenophis III's temple of the dead, and a man in the business of scented oils.

Editorial Review

Product Description
The source material of the book is translated from the only existent Sasanian law text and two Rivayats from the first half of the ninth and the first half of the tenth century, at which time the Zoroastrians survived only in minority communities. The original text is presented in photocopy with a transcription. The analysis is concerned with four institutions in the sphere of family law: Guardianship, marriage of levirate, marriage of a woman in order to provide her father or brother with an heir and marriage between close relatives (incest taboo did not exist). The issue of the research is to show how the social conditions and internal family economy with its power balance is reflected in the rules of the Sasanian law, and that the differences apparent in the later texts are not accidental, but form a pattern caused by the changing social conditions, and that the law was changed in order to help preserve the Zoroastrian minority in adversity under Arab rule. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
"The Carlsberg Papyri 6" (CNI 29) contains the edition of a new manuscript with Petese Stories from the Tebtunis temple library, dating to the period around 100 AD. "The Petese Stories" is a compilation of seventy stories about the virtues and vices of women. The numerous stories were compiled on the orders of the prophet Petese of Heliopolis that they may serve as a literary testament by which he would be remembered. Petese was, according to literary tradition, Plato's Egyptian instructor in astrology. The composition seems to have been modelled on the fundamental Myth of the Sun's Eye. The overall structural pattern of the text is very similar to the Arabian Nights; a frame story forms the introduction as well as the fabric into which the long series of shorter tales are woven. Among the stories preserved in the new manuscript, one is particularly remarkable in that it is known from a translation by Herodotus, the so-called Pheros Story (Book II, chap. 111). ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
The canonical version of the Babylonian omen series concerned with barutu: extispicy (divination from entrails of sheep), consisted of ten chapters or sub-series, and are among the first intellectual adventures of Ancient Man into the field of science. Three of these chapters, all concerned with the front of the liver, are edited here for the first time. Also, the book contains a complete analysis of the Akkadian terms used in divination, a complete index of texts and words, copies of the new-found texts, and photographic plates assisting the reader. By a thorough analysis terminology involved in Assyrian and Babylonian scientific thought, the author for the first time opens up the vast and relatively virgin field of pre-Greek science for the general scholar. The presentation is an indispensable source for all who work with the history and languages of the Ancient Near East, biblical studies, studies in ancient religion, and the history of science and philosophy. The author is associate professor at the Carsten Niebuhr Institute, University of Copenhagen. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
This book presents a complete edition of the three known versions of the ancient Egyptian narrative "The Story of Petese Son of Petetum and Seventy Other Good and Bad Stories", copied from the 4th century BC through the 2nd century AD. The narrative, written in Demotic, employs the literary device of a main story containing a series of brief stories presented to a specific character. In the main story, a prophet commits an act of blasphemy and is punished by the gods. Through magical means, the prophet learns from Osiris that he has only 40 more days to live. On the fifth day, the prophet creates a number of magical beings which he sends out to find 35 'good' stories and 35 'bad' stories, one pair of stories for each remaining day of his life. These stories are then presented to the prophet. In this respect it is remarkably similar to "Arabian Nights". ... Read more

This is the story of these schools, their teacher-owners, and the girls who attended them. It is also the story of the socialisation of middle class girls at the turn of the eighteenth to nineteenth century in Denmark. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Featuring text in German, this volume contains a complete re-edition and study of the Fundamentals of the Course of the Stars. This handbook on Religious Astronomy was hitherto known under the modern designation 'Book of Nut'. Since the standard edition in "Egyptian Astronomical Texts I" (eds. Neugebauer/Parker), five new sources could be identified, some of them containing considerably more text than those previously available. Four of them are papyri from the temple library of Tebtunis, which are published here for the first time. It becomes clear that the Dramatic Text in the Osireion of Abydos as a whole forms part of the 'Fundamentals'. The new sources also contain interesting textual variants of passages already known. Apart from the edition and translation, the study contains an exhaustive commentary focussing especially on the hitherto neglected religious aspects of the composition. Separate chapters deal with the relation between monumental and papyrus copies, dating and redactional history, inner-Egyptian practice of translating and commenting texts, the genre of Dramatic Texts and the books cited in the ancient commentary.A method of historical-linguistic text dating is developed. In an appendix, another mythological papyrus is edited which enriches the small corpus of so-called Dramatic Texts. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
The ancient "Egyptian Coffin Texts" form a corpus of ritual spells written on the inside of coffins from the Middle Kingdom (c. 2000-1650 BCE). Thus accompanying the deceased in a very concrete sense, the spells are part of a long Egyptian tradition of equipping the dead with ritual texts ensuring the transition from the state of a living human being to that of a deceased ancestor. The texts present a view of death as entailing threats to the function of the body, often conceptualised as bodily fragmentation or dysfunction. In the transformation of the deceased, the restoration of these bodily dysfunctions is of paramount importance, and the texts provide detailed accounts of the ritual empowerment of the body to achieve this goal. Seen from this perspective, the "Coffin Texts" provide a rich material for studying ancient Egyptian conceptions of the body by providing insights into the underlying structure of the body as a whole and the proper function of individual part of the body as seen by the ancient Egyptians.Drawing on a theoretical framework from cognitive linguistics and phenomenological anthropology, "Breathing Flesh" presents an analysis of the conceptualisation of the human body and its individual parts in the ancient "Egyptian Coffin Texts". From this starting point, more overarching concepts and cultural models are discussed, including the ritual conceptualisation of the acquisition and use of powerful substances such as 'magic', and the role of fertility and procreation in ancient Egyptian mortuary conceptions. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
This work examines the evidence for marriage and sexual relations between siblings and between parent and child in ancient Egypt and pre-Islamic Iran. Incestuous relationships, as a cultural feature are usually dismissed for both ancient Egypt and Iran on the grounds that it is only found as the exception, being allowed for royalty as representatives for the divine on earth, or that the evidence for it is unreliable. Neither view, from the perspective of this study, is tenable. The book restricts its examination to the sources for incestuous relationships between members of non-royal nuclear families and puts forth the generally held axiom that the prohibition of incest is a universal phenomenon. ...

Product Description
This book contains the 'Akkadian Texts' - i.e. texts written in the Akkadian Language or script ductus - the Enlilemaba Texts and the Onion Archive - all three distinct archives from Nippur in Babylonia from the time of Naram-Sin and Sharkalisharri (c. 2250-2175 BC). The texts in the Akkadian archive deal with Sharkalisharri's rebuilding of Ekur, the great Temple of Enlil at Nippur. The Enlilemaba texts are the business records of a family of private citizens, and are the earliest known examples of this type of documentation from Mesopotamia. The Onion archive records the local governor's cultivation and distribution of onions, and illustrates his relations with the Imperial Sargonic government. The book is the second volume in a planned series of three tomes, "OSP I-III", publishing the Old Sumerian and Old Akkadian Texts in Philadelphia. It contains the archaeological records of the individual texts, a list of joins and a concordance of museum numbers; copies, transliterations and translations of the texts. ... Read more
