Kevin Todd McLaren : Pharaonic Occultism - The Relationship of Esotericism and Egyptology, 1875-1930. - [MA in History, California Polytechnic State University, 2016]. - (PDF - 372 KB) :
Quote:
The purpose of this work is to explore the interactions between occultism and scholarly Egyptology from 1875 to 1930. Within this timeframe, numerous esoteric groups formed that centered their ideologies on conceptions of ancient Egyptian knowledge. In order to legitimize their belief systems based on ancient Egyptian wisdom, esotericists attempted to become authoritative figures on Egypt. This process heavily impacted Western intellectualism not only because occult conceptions of Egypt became increasingly popular, but also because esotericists intruded into academia or attempted to overshadow it. In turn, esotericists and Egyptologists both utilized the influx of new information from Egyptological studies to shape their identities, consolidate their ideologies, and maintain authority on the value of ancient Egyptian knowledge.

This thesis follows the Egypt-centered developments of the Freemasons, the Golden Dawn, Aleister Crowley's A∴A∴, the Theosophical Society, the Anthroposophical Society, and the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis to demonstrate that esotericism evolved simultaneously with academia as a body of knowledge. By examining these fraternal occult groups' interactions with Egyptology, it can be better understood how esotericism has affected Western intellectualism, how ideologies form in response to new information, and the effects of becoming an authority on bodies of knowledge (in particular Egyptological knowledge). In turn, embedded in this work is a challenge to those who have downplayed or overlooked the agency of esotericists in shaping the Western intellectual tradition and preserving the legacy of ancient Egypt.

Greetings, Lutz.

OEB 44837 (AEB 2000.0458) :

A completely updated and revised edition of Margaret Alice Murray's Index of Names and Titles of the Old Kingdom, for which all the main publications covering the Old Kingdom have been consulted. Although the majority of the about 3,800 entries belong to the Old Kingdom proper (3rd-8th Dynasties), the author has also recorded as many titles from the Archaic Period as can be restored with any reasonable degree of certainty, as well as those that continued to be in use in the Middle Kingdom. Some titles from the later First Intermediate Period have also been added, primarily because of the difficulties of dating monuments of this period with any degree of certainty.

For ease of reference, the author has strictly adhered to Murray's sequence, except, naturally, when advances in recent research indicate a different transliteration or show that occasional entries are merely parts of the same or fuller titles. Whenever a title is included in Murray's work, its page entries are given in larger point size and bold typeface, directly after the title in hieroglyphs (which is given in the most common orthography), the title's transliteration and its translation. Further, the approximate date of the source, and textual references are provided. The order in which the titles are given is strictly alphabetical, including such common adjectives as aA, wr, nb, etc. Prepositions are not considered, except for a few cases. Where the title/epithet is well known only a representative selection is given; otherwise as complete a list as possible is provided. The author explicitly notes not having engaged into lengthy discussions on the problems of transliteration and interpretation of the problematic titles, since such an enterprise would have required a much larger work.

A few titles of uncertain reading and a number of incomplete or unclear titles are added, as well as the bibliography which provides the full title description to the works used in abbreviation in the entries. (W.H.)

Anders Bettum : Faces Within Faces - The Symbolic Function of Nested Yellow Coffins in Ramesside Egypt. - University of Oslo, PhD, 2012. - 349 p.
Quote:
This is not published book, but a PhD dissertation, submitted at the University of Oslo in December 2012. It focuses on the layered structure of Ancient Egyptian mummies and coffin ensembles in the Ramesside period, and provide the source material for later papers on the same topic.

The nested structure, which often has been compared with Russian dolls or Chinese boxes, is very characteristic for Egyptian elite burials. The core of the source material consists of 10 private coffin ensembles from the late 18th to the early 21st Dynasties. These objects have been studied in light of theories related to ‘wrapping’ as material culture.

The structure of the coffin ensembles follows a duality of symbolism which can be retrieved in the individual coffins: 1) as a representation of the deceased, 2) as a representation of the space in which the transformation or rebirth of the deceased was believed to take place. The burial of the child-king Tutankhamun is a case in point. His nest of coffins contained three anthropoid coffins and five rectangular sarcophagi shaped as shrines. Furthermore, his mummy demonstrates well how the nested structure seen in the coffin ensemble continued inside the mummy, where artificial façades or attires had been constructed between the layers of bandages.

In private coffins from the New Kingdom, the two main themes merge into one decorative scheme, where the primary decoration represents the mummy and the secondary decoration represents the mythological space surrounding it. This tendency to merge layers is typical. In the 19th Dynasty (inner) coffins, four such layers can be identified. This system created a flexibility that made it possible for people from lower social strata to copy the nested structure of elite coffin ensembles in a single coffin.

Greetings, Lutz.
