Barbara O’Neill - Setting the Scene: The deceased and regenerative cult within offering table imagery
25.05.2020, 06:26

Култовите жертвоприношения с поднасяне на храна за починалите (поминални трапези) са неотделим елемент от повечето кактро примитивни, така и високоразвити религии. Настоящата монография представлява проучване на запазените изображения на такива трапези от времето на Старото и Средното царство (ок. 2686-1650 г. пр. н.е.) - период от цяло хилядолетие.

Аncient Egyptian offering table scenes have been explored from chronological and art historical perspectives over the past century of Egyptological research. This descriptive overview has usually centred on the diachronic evolution of philology and food offerings, focussing less frequently on offering table images as discrete elements of highly codified information. The exploration into offering table imagery presented in this study examines two key elements: gender and the performance of ritual incorporated within scene structure. Latent and hidden potential of life within the ancient Egyptian tomb was subject to a complex process of metaphysical transformation achieved through external cult and provisioning provided by the family of the deceased, and through internalised cult present in ritually charged texts and imagery. The hypothesis that the offering table depiction functioned as an influential element in this transformational continuum will be explored in this work.

This study investigates gender-based and ritual-dependent afterlife expectations of the deceased over a key phase in Egyptian history from the latter part of the Old Kingdom to the end of the Middle Kingdom Period, c.2686 BC - c.1650 BC. Conclusions indicate that the transformational journey to the afterlife can be understood through a meaningful synthesis of people, produce and ritual embedded within offering table depictions.
