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

Fredrik Hagen

Langue : 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).

Les conférences de l’Ifao

Les conférences de l'Ifao ont pour objectif la transmission des résultats des recherches en cours ou très récentes, par des chercheurs confirmés. Y sont conviés essentiellement les chercheurs impliqués dans les différentes opérations scientifiques de l'Ifao lors de leur passage par l'Institut. ِElles sont également parfois le lieu de présentation d'ouvrages récemment parus à l'Ifao par  leurs autheurs. Les conférences de l'Ifao ont lieu traditionnellement le mercredi à 18h, en français ou en anglais.

IFAO Lectures series aim to transmit the results of current or very recent research by confirmed researchers. They are mainly animated by researchers involved in IFAO's various scientific programs and projects during their stay at the Institute. They are also sometimes the occasion for presentations, by their authors, of books recently published by the IFAO.

IFAO Lectures series are traditionally held on Wednesdays at 6 p.m., in French or English.
