Revue de presse

'In Religion and Ritual in Ancient Egypt, Emily Teeter presents her readers with a very helpful offering on Egyptian religion. Rather than examining abstract or esoteric principles, Teeter's book aims to address lived religion, 'how ancient Egyptians related to and worshipped their gods, and how religion affected their daily lives' … In it she ably familiarizes the reader with the fundamental elements of Egyptian religion, including the priests, temples, festivals, divine-human communication, magic, and the afterlife … Overall, Teeter's work is to be highly recommended both for the classroom and for the scholar of biblical and comparative literature.' Michael B. Hundley, Journal of Biblical Literature

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book is a vivid reconstruction of the practical aspects of ancient Egyptian religion. Through an examination of artefacts and inscriptions, the text explores a variety of issues. For example, who was allowed to enter the temples, and what rituals were performed therein? Who served as priests? How were they organized and trained, and what did they do? What was the Egyptians' attitude toward death, and what happened at funerals? How did the living and dead communicate? In what ways could people communicate with the gods? What impact did religion have on the economy and longevity of the society? This book demystifies Egyptian religion, exploring what it meant to the people and society. The text is richly illustrated with images of rituals and religious objects.

HASH(0x93a9b6cc) étoiles sur 5 An Exceptional Work of Scholarship 18 octobre 2011

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Emily Teeter has made a very important contribution to the understanding of ancient Egypt and its people. "Religion and Ritual in Ancient Egypt" will be eye-opening to both the casual egyptophile and the seasoned egyptologist. The author has brought together a bewildering amount of information (I suspect she has been gathering it for many years) and presented it in a most refreshingly uncomplicated way. Her style is eminently accessible and clearly organized--if at times a bit repetitive, which only makes browsing more intelligible.
One overarching theme runs through the entire work: The incredible longevity of the ancient egyptian religion, which seems to us so bizarre and complicated in the extreme, was due to the fact that it offered real comfort and support to a largely illiterate population, allowing for non-violent resolution of daily conflicts, simple incentives to do right, and reassuring answers to the mysteries of birth and death. The innumerable strange gods with heads of birds, beetles, cows, and crocodiles were basically benevolent and helpful figures from egyptian everyday life, and perhaps no more fanciful than centaurs, many armed shivas, eleven headed bodhisattvas, voluptuous genies, or three persons in one.
Some of the black and white photographs are slightly dark, and, in this reviewer's opinion, Teeter is a bit hard on pharaoh Akhenaten and his incorporeal monotheism, but still the work is enormously valuable and deserves five stars.

HASH(0x93a9b918) étoiles sur 5 Excellent overview of Egyptian religion from the point of view of the worshipper 16 février 2013
Par Shadowrider - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Why did a religion that seems so bizarre to us thrive for thousands of years and have so much appeal that one of its offshoots was actually was a rival for converts with Christianity during the Roman Empire?

That is the question which Teeter explores. The book does not delve into the mythology of the gods but rather focuses on what they meant to the average man or woman on the street. Teeter portrays a religion that was accessible to everyone, brought the community together, offered deities which were approachable--if sometimes unpredictable and even dangerous. The Egyptian religion upheld a strong moral code and offered the promise of eternal life to those who lived a good and pious life on earth.

The author's style is very readable and painless. I recommend it for readers interested in the inner life of the Egyptians and in comparitive religion in general.

HASH(0x93a9b8dc) étoiles sur 5 An Excellent Book 14 mars 2013
Par Della - Publié sur

Emily Teeter's fairly short book packs a lot of information. She talks not only about how the priesthood might have expressed their piety toward the gods, but also about how the common person did as well. For example, many temples had chapels of the "hearing ear", where the average person could go into a wooden booth or behind a curtain to pray to the image of a god there.

Teeter also mentions festivals and how they might have been celebrated. This particular chapter was a little disappointing if only because it was (a) so short and (b) didn't have the greatest sample of festivals. She chose to write about the Beautiful Feast of the Valley and the Festival of Amenhotep I. The Beautiful Feast is a good one to write on, yet I couldn't help but feel that there are plenty of other, more interesting festivals to talk about. What about Khoiak? Even the Sed Festival would have been more informative than Amenhotep I's (no offense intended toward him, of course!)

Teeter also talks about different forms of devotion for the average worshipper, including hermitage in one of the local temples. You'll also read about ancient Egyptian magic, its place in society, and much, much more.

My last criticism is I think Teeter tends to lean heavily on the "ancient peoples terrified of their world invented their religion so they could feel better" viewpoint. For sure, the ancient Egyptians found their religion comforting. But I'm not sure all of it was just for comfort and comfort alone.

Ancient Egypt has left us a lot of records of how her people lived. Unfortunately, it's hard to tell what people other than priests and kings did since only the elite were literate. Any book that contributes to our knowledge of personal piety (ie: the piety of the common people) is very much welcome.

If you're interested in ancient Egypt, I would recommend this book. If you are a Kemetic (worshipper of the ancient Egyptian gods), then I would also recommend this book. It's terrific. I can't recommend it highly enough.

HASH(0x93a9bbd0) étoiles sur 5 What people did rather than believed 16 octobre 2014
Par DAJ - Publié sur
Format: Broché
An overview of Egyptian religious practice, filling a need left by the multiplicity of deep-thinking studies of theology. Temple rites and festivals, private prayers and offerings, and funerals are all here, and Teeter's descriptions are evocative without feeling exaggerated or intruding on the flow of the text.

There are a couple of minor caveats. Teeter still tries to distinguish magic from the rest of the religion. I firmly believe, based on Robert Ritner's arguments in The Mechanics of Ancient Egyptian Magical Practice, that the rituals people tend to label as "magic" and those they label as "religious" were all performed by priests and powered by heka, so there really isn't a major distinction. Second, in discussing how great the division was between state cults and popular religion, she clearly believes it was small. I sympathize with that position, but the reader should know that other scholars have challenged it.

Great book. It was very helpful to me when I was trying to gain a better understanding of Ancient Egyptian religion and how it pertained to and impacted the people on a basic level.
