Egyptian culture is divided from us by several millennia, a lost people and a dead language. We can discover much about this fascinating civilization from its physical remains, but perhaps the greatest insights into the Egyptian mind come from Egyptian hieroglyphs. They reveal the priorities, concerns and beliefs of the Egyptians - a whole worldview. Unlike the Western alphabet, which is an arbitrary set of symbols not anchored in reality, each Egyptian hieroglyph denotes a concept central to Egyptian thinking. The language and its written form is intimately bound up with the imaginative world of the Egyptians. Here, Barry Kemp presents 100 of the Egyptian hieroglyphs to provide access to this unique culture. Kemp takes us on a journey through the Egyptian mind, revealing not only aspects of day-to-day life in Ancient Egypt, but gradually building a picture of the historical and mythological references that were the cornerstones of Egyptian thought. This fascinating book helps us get inside a long-vanished world.

Deciphering the Proto-Sinaitic Script

Making Sense of the Wadi el-Hol and Serabit el-Khadim Early Alphabetic Inscriptions

Egypt, Judaism, and the history of the alphabet intersect in Deciphering The Proto-Sinaitic Script. From its initial appearance, in around the 18th century BC, the origins of proto–Sinaitic writing can be traced back to Egypt’s Middle Kingdom period, when it was somehow derived from the hieroglyphs, its parent–system. The importance of proto–Sinaitic lies in the fact that it represents the alphabet’s earliest developmental period—a kind of ‘missing link’ between the hieroglyphs and these early Semitic alphabets from which our own Latin one descends, by way of the Phoenician and Greek. However, up until now, proto-Sinaitic has remained for the most part undeciphered. The intriguing possibility of giving voice to a lost culture or civilization from thousands of years ago is tantalizing. Representing one of the most enticing problems in modern archaeology, the enigmatic allure surrounding ancient languages and the undeciphered scripts in which they are encoded is truly vexing. In his bold and original research, LeBlanc argues convincingly to have solved the mystery and uncovers some incredibly enthralling information about the people who invented it: The epigraphic evidence suggests that the Egyptianized Canaanites who first devised the proto–Sinaitic script were surprisingly instrumental in the formation of early Israelite culture and proto–Judaism.

Le 23 novembre 1964, jour de la promulgation de Lumen Gentium, la constitution dogmatique sur l'Eglise, marque un evenement: c'est la premiere fois dans l'histoire de l'Eglise qu'une assemblee de la Sainte Eglise s'exprime solennellement sur la vie consacree. Le sixieme chapitre de la constitution traite de la signification et de l'essence de la vie religieuse, la reliant au mystere de l'Eglise, peuple de Dieu. Ce texte conciliaire presente la vie religieuse comme un etat canonique, celui du chretien qui tend, dans un institut de perfection, a la charite parfaite et consacre sa vie a Dieu et aux hommes ppar la profession des conseils evangeliques de chastete, pauvrete et obeissance. De toute evidence, cette declaration doctrinale est importante pour l'Eglise et pour le developpement de la vie consacree dans l'Eglise. En lisant Lumen Gentium, on est assez vite frappe par le debut abrupt du sixieme chapitre sur les religieux; car tous les autres chapitres s'ouvrent par une breve introduction. Cepedant on ne peut deracher ce chapitre de ce que a ete dit precedemment sur la vocation universelle a la saintete. En fait, l'histoire du texte fait clairement ressortir le lien qui unit ces chapitres.

Von den verschieden agyptischen Handschriften des 1. Jt. v. Chr. wurde die relativ sorgfaltige Buchschrift vor allem fur funerare, religiose und literarische Papyri verwendet, die normalerweise keinen realweltlichen Zeitbezug enthalten. Daher ist man bei der Datierung dieser Quellen meist auf palaographische vergleiche angewiesen. Der Hauptteil der Untersuchungen widmet sich der Formanalyse dieser spathieratischen Buchschrift: synchron am Brooklyner Orakelpapyrus vom 4. Okt. 651 v. Chr., diachron mit einer vollstandigen Palaographie aus 19 datierten Textzeugen im Zeitraum von 950-230 v. Chr., davon sechs Totenbucher aus der Saitenzeit, der Dynastie, die in Mollers Palaographie III am schlechtesten vertreten war. Das Zeichenmaterial wird ausgewertet, Entwicklungslinien und Ahnlichkeiten werden aufgezeigt. Der zweite Schwerpunkt der Arbeit liegt in der Anwendung der palaographischen Methode: sieben bekannte Papyri werden anhand des aktuellen Materials untersucht: P. Berlin 10456, P. Salt 825, P. BM 10474, P. Brooklyn 47.218.48&85, P. Brooklyn 47.218.50, P. Brooklyn 47.218.148, P. Vandier. Die neuen Datierungen und die erkennbaren Entwicklungsschube des Spathieratischen liefern interessante Einsichten in die Schreibkultur der Spatzeit.
