Most widely held works by Catharine H Roehrig
Dawn of Egyptian art by Diana Craig Patch( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cultural icons of Pharaonic Egypt, from the Great Sphinx at Giza to the famous burial of Tutankhamun, are among the world's most renowned works of art. Less well known, but equally impressive, are the rare and ancient images of people, animals, and landscapes made by the Egyptians who lived prior to the age of the pharaohs, when the formal conventions of Egyptian art had not yet fully evolved. With illustrations of more than 180 objects created from about 4000 to 2650 BC, Dawn of Egyptian Art presents the art forms and iconography in which the early Egyptians recorded their beliefs about the land where they lived, the yearly events that took place there, and what they thought was important to the eternal survival of their world. Comprehensive texts explore the origins and early development of the culture of ancient Egypt while discussing the relationship between image and writing as well as the representation of the self and the universe

Hatshepsut, from queen to Pharaoh( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The female pharaoh Hatshepsut reigned for nearly twenty years during Egypt's early New Kingdom in the fifteenth century B.C. First acting as regent for her young nephew/stepson Thutmose III, she in time assumed the title of king and exercised the full powers of the throne as senior co-ruler. In accordance with Egyptian tradition, Hatshepsut was often depicted as a male king. After her death, however, monuments bearing her image were ruthlessly defaced, and her name was erased from historical accounts. Hatshepsut's rise to power and the nature of her kingship have long been debated by scholars. This fascinating period, one of immense artistic creativity, is illuminated by this volume's rich presentation of monumental royal sculpture and reliefs, ceremonial objects, exquisite personal items for everyday use, and dazzling jewelry. Essays focus on influences from the neighboring Near East, Nubia, and the Aegean; the innovative architecture built by Hatshepsut; powerful figures in the royal court during her reign; archaeological finds from this period; and mysteries surrounding the destruction of Hatshepsut's statues and the obliteration of her name. The first in-depth treatment of the subject, Daughter of Re is an important investigation into the impact of Hatshepsut's reign on the history, culture, and artistic output of Egypt. ...

The Eighteenth Dynasty titles Royal Nurse (mnʼt nswt), Royal Tutor (mnʼnswt), and Foster Brother/Sister of the Lord of the Two Lands (sn/snt mnʼn nb t3wy) by Catharine H Roehrig( )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Men and women entrusted with the upbringing of the royal children were highly honored members of Egyptian society in Dynasty 18. Although there were probably nurses and tutors in earlier times, specific titles identifying people as "royal nurse" (mn't nswt) or "royal tutor" (mn' nswt), only seem to occur during Dynasty 18. These individuals are known from a variety of sources, including tombs, funerary equipment, and statuary. A few are well known figures in Egyptian history; others are almost completely undocumented. The types of monuments that have been preserved are revealing. Most intriguing are the representations that depict a nurse or tutor holding one or more of the royal children. This kind of representation, showing a non-royal person in close physical contact with a member of the royal family, is unprecedented in Egyptian art. Even more unusual are the examples that show a nurse or tutor holding the nursling as a miniature ruler. Affectionate gestures of the figures towards one another clearly indicate that the artist was attempting to represent the very close bond that existed between them. The existence of the title "one who nurtured the God" (v sd/sdt ntr) shows that this relationship was given special honor if the nursling became king. Evidence suggests that tutors were a combination of guardian and teacher, chosen because of their experience and ability. Nurses seem to have acted as wet-nurses, and some of their children shared a milk-bond with their mother's nursling, reflected in the rare title "foster brother/sister" (sn/snt n mn'). It is unclear how nurses were chosen, but it is possible that they had blood ties with the royal family. The husband of a nurse had no official function with regard to his wife's nursling but the fact that a man's wife had suckled a child probably would have bound him to that child as well. This may account for the unusually large number of nurses who are connected with Amenhotep II as a child. Tuthmosis III may have feared that his son would inherit while still a minor and may have been binding a group of strong and trusted courtiers to the prince
