Harold M. Hays, Leiden University
The ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts form the oldest body of religious texts in the world. This book weds traditional philology to linguistic anthropology to associate them with two spheres of ritual action, mortuary cult and personal preparation for the afterlife.
Using a wide range of archaeological and inscriptional data this book explores the social historical transformation of the early Egyptian temples from locally based institutions to royal ones during the 3rd millennium BC (Dynasty 0 to 11).
