FOUNDING MEMBERS ONGOING RESEARCHES
- "CHRONOLOGICAL PROBLEMS OF THE THIRD DYNASTY. A RE-EXAMINATION OF DOCUMENTS"
In order to clarify the chronological sequence of the Third Dynasty
sovereigns, the first systematic re-examination of both reliefs and royal
sealings has been carried out. This research, now in its final phases, has
shed light onto new elements which may demonstrate the presence of at least
one predecessor of Djoser in the early IIIrd Dynasty (Sanakht). It has been
also analyzed the markedly centralized organization of Egypt, which studies
about this period traditionally consider it to be still an "archaic state".
Referent: Dott. ssa Ilaria
Incordino. (Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale")
- " SUN TEMPLES AND KINGSHIP IN
THE OLD KINGDOM"
An analysis of the peculiar typology of Vth Dynasty "Sun Temples", aiming
to an exact definition of their function and value within the refinement of
the pharaonic ideology of the IVth through the VI Dynasty. The ongoing study
aims to explain the genesis and the rapid decline of these temples, mainly
through the analysis of the titularies of priests and functionaries connected
to such institutions.
Referent: Dott. Massimiliano Nuzzolo. (Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale").
- "THE ROLE OF LYBIANS IN EGYPT
FROM THE END OF NEW KINGDOM TO THE REIGN OF SHESHONQ I"
A study aiming to a comprehension of the complex historical events of the
XX and XXII Dynasty, through the study of a series of unpublished documents.
The analysis, nearly complete, has stressed the presence of several "Libyan
characters" in the royal genealogies, thus witnessing the widespread diffusion
of this ethnic group in Late Period Egypt.
Referent: Dott. Giuseppe Lebro. (Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale")
- "THE SECOND DYNASTY. HISTORICAL
AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL PROBLEMS"
A synthesis of the historical problems of one of the least known dynasties
of Egypt, carried out through the analysis of contemporary and later
archaeological and epigraphical data. Particular attention in this research
has been reserved to the examination of historical sources and of past and
modern archaeological discoveries.
Referent: Francesco Raffaele. (Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale")
