NML441H1: Ancient Egyptian Religious and Funerary Texts

Hours

36S

This is an advanced language seminar that introduces the student to the analysis, in terms of both language/grammar and content, of texts that elucidate ancient Egyptian religious conceptions. Texts from all periods of Pharaonic history will be studied and all texts will be read in the original. While the focus will be on texts from funerary contexts, for which the most complete sources can be found, cultic, magical, and theological sources will also be studied.
