The Compositional Design of Djedhor Cairo JE 46341

Michael Chen (Egyptology). This paper examines the layout of spells upon the statue surfaces of Djedhor to uncover the inherent planning behind the design of the statue. This strategic design reveals both a balanced spell arrangement and the inscribing order of the statue’s construction. The patterns observed in my analysis permit a greater intertextual study of magical healing spells and a better understanding of these spells’ relationships with materiality.


Temple Rank and 21st Dynasty Funerary Papyri: Documenting Status in Theban Society

Marissa Stevens (Egyptology). This talk focuses on the funerary papyri of the Theban priesthood and the choices they made regarding the content of the papyri. These choices of content reflect the positions these priests held within the temple, and oftentimes passed through the generations, illustrating the inheritance of temple positions and the importance of hereditary positions in this religiously entrenched society
