Threat-Formulae in Ancient Egypt

Threat-Formulae in Ancient Egypt

by Scott Morschauser




This study is divided into three topics: the first chapter deals with the form and structure of the threat-formula in ancient Egypt, and is primarily an analysis of the grammatical and lexical details of the stipulative and injunctive clauses of the formula. Chapter two presents a history of the threat-formula, and is particularly concerned with its use as a legal device. Chapter three discusses the possibility of whether the Egyptians had any terms or expressions for what we have called the 'threat-formula'.
