Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: The temples of ancient Egypt include the largest and some of the most impressive religious monuments the world has ever known. Mansions of the gods, models of Egypt and of the universe, focal points for worship, great treasure houses and islands of order in a cosmic ocean of chaos – the temples were all these things and more. Richard Wilkinson traces their development from the earliest times, looking at every aspect of their construction, decoration, symbolism and function. From the Delta to Nubia, all of Egypt’s surviving temples – ranging from the gargantuan temple of Amun at Karnak, to minuscule shrines such as the oasis Oracle of Siwa, where Alexander went to hear himself proclaimed god – are discussed and illustrated

Описание: Ancient Egyptian cities and towns have until recently been one of the least- studied and least-published aspects of this great ancient civilization. Now new research and excavation are transforming our knowledge. The Complete Cities of Ancient Egypt is the first book to bring these latest discoveries to a wide general and scholarly audience, and to provide a comprehensive overview of what we know about ancient settlement during the dynastic period. Divided in two halves, the book opens with an account of the development of urban settlement in Egypt, describing the pattern of urban life, from food production, government, crime and health to schooling, leisure, ancient tourism, and the interaction of the living community with the dead. The second half of the book takes the reader on a trip down the Nile from Aswan to the Delta, giving a comprehensive account of all cities and towns with details for each of their discovery, excavation and important finds, supported by maps and plans as well as recent photographs. This book is sure to appeal to all those concerned with urban design and history, as well as tourists, students and Egyptophiles.
Описание: The gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt, worshipped for over half of recorded history, are among the most fascinating and complex of any civilization. Here is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the deities that lay at the heart of Egyptian religion and society. It examines the evolution, worship and eventual decline of the numerous gods and goddesses – from minor household figures such as Bes and Taweret to the all-powerful deities Amun and Re – that made Egypt the most completely theocratic society of the ancient world, and made Egyptians, according to Herodotus, ‘more religious than any other people’.

Описание: National history is a vital part of national self-definition. Most books on the history of the world try to impose a uniform narrative, written usually from a single writers point of view. Histories of Nations is different: it presents 28 essays written by a leading historian as a self-portrait of his or her native country, defining the characteristics that embody its sense of nationhood. The countries have been selected to represent every continent and every type of state, large and small, and together they make up two-thirds of the worlds population. They range from mature democracies to religious autocracies and one-party states, from countries with a venerable history to those who only came into being in the 20th century. In order to get to grips with the national and cultural differences that both enliven and endanger our world, we need above all to understand different national viewpoints to read the always engaging and often passionate accounts given in this remarkable and unusual book.

Описание: What secrets lie beneath the wrappings of an ancient Egyptian mummy?
Описание: Greek temples captivate anyone with an interest in antiquity, and the Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columnar orders that clad them launched the classical architectural tradition down to modern times. The Origins of Classical Architecture proposes groundbreaking new theories in both areas as it elucidates the nature and function of Greek architecture. While contextualizing past debate and prevailing, frequently evolutionary assumptions, Mark Wilson Jones explains how the orders emerged over a relatively short period in response to cultural developments, human agency, and artistic inspiration. Temples were houses for the gods while also considered as offerings to them, and thus made appropriately from enduring materials and grandly scaled. These structures, furthermore, sheltered votive offerings of great artistic quality, the design of which influenced that of the temples and the creation of the new architectural forms. Temples and their orders thereby symbolized the dedication of effort and artistry to the cause of religious expression and collective identity.
