Cultural memory and identity in ancient societies by Martin Bommas( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did ancient societies remember and commemorate the past? And how was cultural identity, both individual and collective, formed and articulated? In recent years memory has become a central concept in historical studies, following the definition of the term 'Cultural Memory' by the Egyptologist Jan Assmann in 1994. Thinking about memory, as both an individual and a social phenomenon, has led to a new way of conceptualizing history and has drawn historians into debate with scholars in other disciplines such as literary studies, cultural theory and philosophy. The aim of this volume is to explore memory and identity in ancient societies
Memory and urban religion in the ancient world by Martin Bommas( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together scholars and researchers working on memory and religion in ancient urban environments. Chapters explore topics relating to religious traditions and memory, and the multifunctional roles of architectural and geographical sites, mythical figures and events, literary works and artefacts. Pagan religions were often less static and more open to new influences than previously understood. One of the factors that shape religion is how fundamental elements are remembered as valuable and therefore preservable for future generations. Memory, therefore, plays a pivotal role whe

Das ägyptische Investiturritual by Martin Bommas( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in German and English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a new edition of Moscow 314 Papyrus from the Middle Kingdom, this study identifies for the first time the ancient Egyptian ritual of investiture. Serving as a tool of re-attunement, the ritual speech act, pivotal for the creation of divine kingship in ancient Egypt, is now identified. The speech influenced the investiture of the dead uncovered in mortuary liturgies. An interdisciplinary approach based on theories relating to political theology, the natural and political body of the Pharaoh, as well as on rituals of investiture dated from the ancient world down to the 17th C AD is applied to the study of this important subject."--Publisher's web site
Das Alte Ägypten by Martin Bommas( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ägypten - Reich der Pharaonen am Strom des Lebens, dem Nil. Der Band erläutert die Geschichte und die Entwicklungen des Alten Ägypten vom Jahr 3300 v. Chr. an und reicht bis zur Eroberung durch Alexander den Großen und damit dem Ende der Pharaonenzeit. Anhand der Königslisten vollzieht der Autor den Fortgang der Geschichte nach und verliert dabei nicht den Blick für die Individuen, welche die Geschicke des Reiches lenkten. Neben der Chronologie wird jedoch insbesondere der kulturellen Entwicklung des Alten Ägypten (Sprache, Schrift, Kunst, Literatur) Rechung getragen, denn neben den reinen historischen Fakten ist die Geschichte Ägyptens vor allem eine Kulturgeschichte, die sich selbst zwischen den großen Epochen des Alten, Mittleren und Neuen Reiches fortsetzte. Erstmals werden auch Zeugnisse der Alltagskultur herangezogen, welche die Geschichte aus nicht offizialisierter Perspektive erfahrbar machen. Biographische Informationen Charlotte Schubert ist Inhaberin des Lehrstuhls für Alte Geschichte am Historischen Seminar der Universität Leipzig. Ingemar König, geb. 1938, war bis zu seiner Emeritierung Professor für Alte Geschichte an der Universität Trier. Bei der WBG erschien von ihm zuletzt ›Vita Romana. Vom täglichen Leben im alten Rom‹ - eine Darstellung des antiken Alltags aufgrund der Quellen (2004)
