Recently discovered papyri and ostraca from the mortuary temple of Thutmose III

Fredrik Hagen

La conférence aura lieu en anglais.

Recent excavations at the mortuary temple of Thutmose III at Thebes have resulted in a much better understanding of this institution. Despite the relatively poor state of preservation of the temple itself, work there has unearthed the remains of the only surviving temple archive of the New Kingdom. The uniqueness of the find, as well as its fragmentary nature, means that contextualizing it can be a challenge, but comparisons with temple archives from earlier periods like those from Abusir (c. 2450 BC) and Lahun (c. 1800 BC), as well as later ritual texts, help shed light on various types of practices attested in these documents. The lecture will present an overview of the material and offer some preliminary thoughts on its interpretation and importance.

Fredrik Hagen is Professor of Egyptology at the University of Copenhagen, and works on the social and economic history of the New Kingdom. His books include ’The Antiquities Trade in Egypt 1880-1930’ (2016, with K. Ryholt), ’An Ancient Egyptian Literary Text in Context’ (2012), and ’New Kingdom Ostraca from the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge’ (2011).
