The Sphinx that Traveled to Philadelphia : the Story of the Colossal Sphinx in the Penn Museum by Josef W Wegner( )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the story of the colossal sphinx that is a highlight of the Penn Museum's Egyptian galleries and an iconic object for the Museum as a whole. The narrative covers the original excavations and archaeological history of the Sphinx, how it came to Philadelphia, and the unexpected ways in which the Sphinx's story intersects with the history of Philadelphia, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Museum just before World War I
The Sunshade Chapel of Meritaten from the House-of-Waenre of Akhenaten by Josef W Wegner( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quartzite architectural block E16230 has been on display in the Penn Museum for 115 years. E16230 is one of the few large architectural pieces in the world surviving from the much-debated reign of the "heretic" king Akhenaten. This block is one of the most historically significant objects on display in the Egyptian galleries, yet it has never been analyzed or published. This volume addresses that glaring gap and provides for the first time a translation and discussion of the important texts on the object, along with analysis of the architectural evidence it provides.The block is part of the once intensely ornamented façade of a solar chapel ("sunshade") dedicated to princess Meritaten, the eldest daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. The large (1100 kg) block originates in a chapel that was part of a royal ceremonial palace of Akhenaten named Per-Waenre ("the house of the Unique-one-of-Re").
Akhenaten and Tutankhamun : revolution and restoration by David P Silverman( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three Penn Egyptologists examine the concept of royal power and demonstrate how Akhenaten established, projected, and maintained his vision of it. They investigate how and why this unique pharaoh made fundamental changes in the social contract between himself and his subjects on one side, and his new solar god, the Aten, and himself on the other. The authors also look at the radical religion, politics, and art he introduced to Egypt as well as at the consequences of his actions after his death, including how his successors, most notably, Tutankhamun, Egypt's most famous pharaoh - dealt with the restoration of traditional ways. In a concise and readable form, this generously illustrated volume takes a fresh approach to a most fascinating period in Egyptian history."--Jacket
Archaism and innovation : studies in the culture of Middle Kingdom Egypt by David P Silverman( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current volume assembles a series of studies of Middle Kingdom culture gathered around the theme of archaism, change, and innovation. The papers had their origin in a symposium the University of Pennsylvania Museum hosted in 2002, and held in memory of the great Middle Kingdom scholar, Oleg Berlev. The Penn Museum organized the conference that received generous support from the Center for Ancient Studies of the University of Pennsylvania and the Marilyn and William Kelly Simpson Endowment in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Yale University. For the publication, the authors revised and augmented their essays, allowing this volume to include up-to-date information. The editors also invited other scholars to contribute additional studies resulting in a volume that deals with the Middle Kingdom in a broader context. The Marilyn and William Kelly Simpson endowment in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Yale University generously provided the funds necessary for the publication of the volume

The mortuary complex of Senwosret III : a study of Middle Kingdom state activity and the cult of Osiris at Abydos by Josef W Wegner( )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main focus of the work is a detailed study of a mortuary complex which was built at Abydos by the 12th Dynasty king Senwosret III. Archaeological excavations conducted in 1994 provide the basis for an analysis of the function of that complex, and a means for associating it with the wider patterns of Middle Kingdom royal and state-level investment in the Osiris cult at Abydos. The Senwosret III complex is the only remaining, well-preserved element of Middle Kingdom Abydos where the interrelated issues of royal religious and ideological interest in the Osiris cult can be combined with analysis of state-initiated institutional investment in Abydos

The Osiris Temple at Abydos: An archaeological investigation of the architecture and decorative elements of two temple phases by Michelle Marlar( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation addresses the importance of the archeological history within the Osiris Temple Enclosure in North Abydos, Egypt prior to and including excavations undertaken by the University of Pennsylvania Museum-Yale University-Institute of Fine Arts, New York University Expedition to Abydos in 2002-2004. Abydos held great religious significance in ancient Egypt. The Old Kingdom god Khentyamentiu was revered here, while in subsequent dynasties he was superceded by the god Osiris, whose cult prospered until the very latest phases of Egyptian history. The central focus of the cult would have been at the temple of Osiris, where daily offerings were made to the god and rituals carried out
