Présentation de l'éditeur

The latter part of the fifteenth century bc saw Egypts political power reach its zenith, with an empire that stretched from beyond the Euphrates in the north to much of what is now Sudan in the south. The wealth that flowed into Egypt allowed its kings to commission some of the most stupendous temples of all time, some of the greatest dedicated to Amun-Re, King of the Gods. Yet a century later these temples lay derelict, the gods images, names, and titles all erased in an orgy of iconoclasm by Akhenaten, the devotee of a single sun-god. This book traces the history of Egypt from the death of the great warrior-king Thutmose III to the high point of Akhenatens reign, when the known world brought gifts to his newly-built capital city of Amarna, in particular looking at the way in which the cult of the sun became increasingly important to even orthodox kings, culminating in the transformation of Akhenatens father, Amenhotep III, into a solar deity in his own right. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

HASH(0x8b543930) étoiles sur 5 More than Sunrise 31 juillet 2014
Par William Suddaby - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Professor Dodson gives us more than simply the origins of Akhenaten's religious revolution in fourteenth century BCE Egypt. He revisits much of the material covered in his earlier work "Amarna Sunset" concerning the evident turmoil following Akhenaten's demise, i.e. the reigns of Smenkhkare, Neferneferuaten, Tutankhamen, Ay, and Horemheb, albeit with important updates noting the 2010 mummy DNA analysis and the recent discovery of evidence for Nefertiti surviving into the sixteenth year of her husband's reign. Dodson does not note the 2013 discovery of evidence in Asasif Tomb 28 for a long Akhenaten coregency with his father Amenhotep III (for Dodson's thoughts on this subject see: KMT, Summer 2014, pp. 19-35).

The first part of "Sunrise" is a helpful and quite thorough compilation of the surviving artifacts of the Thutmosid Dynasty beginning with Ahmos I through the reign of Akhenaten's father Amenhotep III. Dodson stilll believes that the shadowy Neferneferuaten was actually Nefertiti in a new role, and that Akhenaten & Nefertiti were Tutankhuaten's parents, while a very good case can be made that Neferneferuaten was Nefertiti's daughter Meryetaten, and Tutankhuaten was the son of Smenkhkare (Akkhenaten's younger brother) who we know was married to Meryetaten.

Many of the black and white illustrations are dim, unfocused, or miniscule, but the book is valuable to Amarna students, and Professor Dodson, as usual, is careful and tentative in his speculations and interpretations.

HASH(0x8b543b7c) étoiles sur 5 Very readable and interesting 25 octobre 2014
Par K. A. Sanders - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I'm a big fan of Aidan Dodson's work, and was glad to see this "prequel" to his "Amarna Sunset". This is a very confusing time in ancient Egyptian history, made more so by the fragmentary nature of the surviving evidence. All of which makes it fascinating, since there will never be a definitive answer. I enjoy hearing the different theories about the "why" of Akhenaten's actions - well, except for the way out there crackpots - and Aidan Dodson does a good job of distilling the current evidence and speculation into something understandable. What I found most interesting was his idea that makes Nefertiti possible as Tutankamon's mother - if Akhenaten and Nefertiti were 1st cousins, then DNA results on the mummy ID'd as Tut's mother would be the same as if they were siblings. (Akenaten being the son of Queen Tiye and Nefertiti being the daughter of Tiye's brother.)

I am only halfway through this wonderful book aand can already recommend it. It is filled with very helpful photos and illustrations in the greatest detail I've ever seen in a book about Akhetaten here at my fingertips. The text is serious and detailed in its explanation of the events, art, biography and history of the reign of Akhenaten. It also has the advantage of being recently published and so its data is strictly up to date. Be sure to consider adding this fine book of Dr. Dodson to your library.
