Catalogue of Egyptian Funerary Papyri in Danish Collections Hardback

Edited by Thomas Christiansen, Kim Ryholt

Description

Presents an exhaustive catalogue of Egyptian funerary manuscripts in Danish collections.

The volume includes sixteen papyrus manuscripts, two of which are preserved intact, and smaller pieces of inscribed linen from six mummies.

The material spans a period of over a millennium, ranging from c. 1200 BC to AD 100. Most of the manuscripts are guides to the afterlife; eighteen of them contain texts and vignettes from the Book of the Dead, while a minor fragment preserves an illustration from the Book of Amduat.

The three remaining manuscripts has previously been published.
