The Coffins of the Priests of Amun
24.03.2019, 19:05

XXI династия (ок. 1069-945 г. пр. н.е.) е първата от Третия преходен период в историята на Древен Египет. При нея отслабените фараони управляват Делтата от Танис, а Югът: Среден и Горен Египет е в ръцете на могъщите върховни жреци на Амон. 
Колекция богато украсени дървени ковчези на жреци на Амон от този период се намира в холандския музей на древностите в Лайден и тя е представена в настоящото пищно илюстрирано издание.

Ancient Egyptian coffins provided a shell to protect the deceased both magically and physically. They guaranteed an important requirement for eternal life: an intact body. Not everybody could afford richly decorated wooden coffins. As commodities, coffins also pl ayed a vital role in the daily life of the living and marked their owner’s taste and status. Coffin history is an ongoing process and does not end with the ancient burial. The coffins that were discovered and shipped to museums have become part of the National heritages. The Vatican Coffin Project is the first international research project to study the entire use-life of Egyptian coffins from an interdisciplinary perspective.This edited volume presents the first Leiden results of the project focusing on the lavishly decorated coffins of the Priests of Amun that are currently in the collection of the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities. Six chapters, written by international specialists, present the history of the Priests of Amun, the production of their coffins and use-life of the coffins from Ancient Egypt until modern times. The book appeals to the general public interested in Egyptian culture, heritage studies, and restoration research, and will also be a stimulating read for both students and academics.
