Produktbeschreibung

Everything as One is an important scholarly monograph on the concept of the Creator god as expressed in the oldest surviving Egyptian texts, the Pyramid Texts of the 5th and 6th Dynasties (24th-22nd centuries BC), which were inscribed in stone inside the pyramids of that epoch. Joanna Popielska-Grzybowska, through intensive and specialist linguistic analysis, is able to elucidate the central idea of the texts. These innovative findings are enriched by the author's thorough analysis of ancient Egyptian religion and culture and include also scrutiny of the astronomical references occurring in the texts. This is the first systematic and thorough study of the notion of the Creator as expressed in the earliest surviving texts of ancient Egypt, a task that has awaited accomplishment for the 140 years since those texts were discovered. As a result, this book provides a fundamental work of reference for all future studies of the sacred traditions of Old Kingdom Egypt. The method of approach has been through a linguistic worldview. All alternative views put forward in the past century and a half are scrutinised and discussed thoroughly. The crucial concepts of creator and demiurge, myth, logos and other religious ideas, are all considered from the point of view of the use of the Egyptian language, the actual language that was used being the most reliable source of our understanding.
