As one of Professor Wente's first student-colleagues on the Oriental Institute's Epigraphic Survey in Luxor and also as one of his first students in Late Egyptian language courses at the University of Chicago, I have long had the highest As one of Professor Wente's first student-colleagues on the Oriental Institute's Epigraphic Survey in Luxor and also as one of his first students in Late Egyptian language courses at the University of Chicago, I have long had the highest regard for both his scholarship and his mentoring.
Epigraphy and careful collation were second nature to Ed and he really made the Late Ramesside Letters practically come alive in class.
This little tribute may not be totally suited to his main interests as evidenced by his publications, but his personal interest in everything Egyptological should lead him to read and critique it anyway. Because he himself has accepted the fact that some women of ancient Egypt were literate, it should come as no surprise that some of his students would try to explore the possibilities Wente , p.
In studying the one, almost complete Book of the Dead manuscript in the John Hay Library at Brown University , which I am now preparing for publication with the assistance of Stephen E. Thompson, I was struck immediately by the vignette and the final spell in this Late Period actually Ptolemaic text.
Hawass has written and co-written many books relating to Egyptology , including The Curse of the Pharaohs: My Adventures with Mummies, [ citation needed ] and King Tutankhamun: The Treasures from the Tomb,  the latter published to coincide with a major exhibition in the UK. This group of spells as a whole also occurs in numerical order occasionally and can be followed by one or even a few other spells, but it is almost always near the end of a manuscript. Tickets are also available in person from several locations including the Weis Center lobby weekdays 10 a. Series co-director and co-editor with Rubina Raja, University of Aarhus. The pick-up schedule is as follows: Shamokin — rear of Weis Markets at 5 p. Edited by Roland Enmarch and Verena Lepper.
The imagery in this concluding text is rather remarkable both because of and despite the fact that this is a fairly common ending for late Books of the Dead following the sequence Spells , , , and , which is also the sequence of the Hay Papyrus. This group of spells as a whole also occurs in numerical order occasionally and can be followed by one or even a few other spells, but it is almost always near the end of a manuscript.
The spells do not seem to have a great deal in common with one another, but if we can believe the note preceding Spell found in the Turin Papyrus of the Ptolemaic period, at that time they were apparently considered spells that had been taken from another papyrus to serve as additions to the book of Going Forth by Day, which, of course, is known today as the Book of the Dead. Even if this identification of a separate book in the Ptolemaic period is correct, however, it apparently marks neither the beginning nor the end of the story of this particular composition.

Klaus Baer was my teacher in only one course at the Oriental Institute, but before sending me off to the Klaus Baer was my teacher in only one course at the Oriental Institute, but before sending me off to the University of California, Berkeley as his successor there, he spent many hours in the spring and summer of reviewing every stage of Egyptian language and history and drilling me in what to cover and how to present every aspect in each course I was to teach.
His remarks were up-to-date, thorough, and more practical than anything I had learned in regular classes, and the time he generously gave to this effort was clearly above and beyond the call of duty. The topic and style of this paper would certainly not have been Klaus Baer's choice, but, on the other hand, nothing in Egyptology was outside his wide range ofinterest.
This lengthy and beautifully written document has one illustration at its beginning on the right-hand side, but no other vignettes at all. The single illustration is of a youthful looking high priest First Prophet of Amun-Re, King of the Gods who is offering incense before the image of the god Osiris, Foremost of the Westerners, Wennefer, ruler of the living.
The title of Professor of Egyptology may refer to the holders of one of the following professorial chairs: Edwards Professor of Egyptian Archaeology and Philology. The position of Professor of Egyptology at the University of Oxford was established in The post is associated with a fellowship at The Queen's College.
Pinedjem here, but not elsewhere in the personalized chapters that follow, has the title, General of the Army, added to his priestly title. The cursive hieroglyphic texts of the rest of the manuscript are in horizontal lines divided into columns.
In the thirty-one and a half columns of texts the only obvious flaw is the addition above one line of a slightly more cursive "Osiris" that had been omitted in just one of the countless occurrences of Pinedjem's name. The manuscript has sixty chapters of the Book of the Dead with five of these occurring twice.
