Hello all,
This is my first post to your savagely interesting forum.

I am wondering if anyone can point me to any good books or articles on the Opet Festival. I have ordered Reliefs and Inscriptions at Luxor Temple, Volume 1: The Festival Procession of Opet in the Colonnade Hall but Oxbow Books, who seem to be the only supplier, have apparently been moving their warehouse for four months now and have been unable to supply it. I am interested in this festival in particular as I am building the Karnak temple, as at the time of Hatshepsut, in Second Life and am hoping to organise a group to perform this festival there. If you are interested you can see the temple at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Khem/13/48/1035 or here is a picture.



Senebty,

Djhuty

Thanks for those sources Lutz,
I am familiar with most of them, except those not in English, and the Australian one, which I will obtain. I do wish the gods would give me the gift of literacy in more languages so I could read the non English ones!

Thanks for your reply. I am familiar with the Digital Karnak site, I used it as the source for structure of the temple as they have an excellent timeline that shows the development of the temple over time as a 3D model.

I'm thinking I should have mentioned the sources I had already looked at for Opet when asking for help, but there are just so many....

Thanks again
