Overview

The development of Kushite concepts of order in the state and the cosmos forms the focus of László Török’s latest volume. Taking a wide variety of textual and iconographical evidence as his points of departure, the author sheds light on the formation of, and interaction between basic concepts such as inhabited space, sacred space, sacred landscape, historical memory and political legitimacy. The author traces this development by discussing the royal and temple texts, urban architecture, the structure of temple iconography, and the relationship between the society and the temples as places of popular worship, archives of historical memory, and centres of cultural identity.This volume presents the first comprehensive study on the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This impressive volume presents a detailed study of the concepts of political and cosmic order as these may be discerned from the art and texts of the Kush of ancient Nubia. The sources for the study include urban settlements, the iconography and furniture of temples of the Napatan and Meroitic periods, and a selection of Kushite texts. T<:o>r<:o>k, who has been a visiting scholar in England, teaches at the E<:o>tv<:o>s Lor<'a>nd U. in Budapest, Hungary. Numerous good quality b&w plates of the sites, paintings, temple plans and schema of their iconographic programs are included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
