Overview

In Temples of Ancient Egypt, five distinguished scholars—Dieter Arnold, Lanny Bell, Ragnhild Bjerre Finnestad, Gerhard Haeny, and Byron E. Shafer—here summarize the state of current knowledge about ancient Egyptian temples and the rituals associated with their use. The first volume in English to survey the major types of Egyptian temples from the Old Kingdom to the Roman period, it offers a unique perspective on ritual and its cultural significance. The authors perceive temples as loci for the creative interplay of sacred space and sacred time. They regard as unacceptable the traditional division of the temples into the categories of "mortuary" and "divine," believing that their functions and symbolic representations were, at once, too varied and too intertwined.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Perceptive interpretations and refreshing new evaluations are the hallmarks of Temples of Ancient Egypt. This book should be essential reading for anyone eager to study current views on Egyptian religion."—Egyptian Archaeology

"If one cares about ancient Egyptian culture or if one is studying architecture, religion, or language, Temples of Ancient Egypt will be interesting."—Choice

"This is an exciting book to read. The contributors are all scholars who have reached the peak of their interpretive and analytical powers; who know their material very well, and at first hand; and who have interesting, sometimes rather novel, ideas to communicate. Shafer's introductory essay is well researched and useful. Temples of Ancient Egypt is a valuable and important book."—David O'Connor, New York University
