À propos de la conspiration du harem.

This two-part article deals with the Harem Conspiracy. In the first part an analysis of the Judicial Turin Papyrus shows that this document is not "judicial", but is in fact a protection text of the deceased King against the acts of the deceased Conspirators.

The second part is a study of an unpublished Rifaud Text. The main results of it are:

a. The Varzy Papyrus belongs to the dossier of the Harem Conspiracy;

b. A magical practice of bewitchment was directed against the King himself;

c. Theurgy was practised in the Graeco-Roman Period.
