Osiris – Cultes et sanctuaires

Ce carnet est destiné à accompagner un programme de recherches sur « l’osirianisation » de la religion de l’Égypte antique. L’avénement de la personnalité d’Osiris au rang de dieu majeur au sein de tous les temples égyptiens — et non plus seulement dans ses sanctuaires traditionnels ou dans le domaine funéraire — est un des phénomènes les plus marquants de l’histoire de la religion égyptienne au Ier millénaire av. J.-C. et a des répercussions ensuite sur les religions des civilisations méditerranéennes dans leur ensemble. Ce carnet rend compte en premier lieu des résultats d’un programme archéologique et épigraphique concernant le développement du culte d’Osiris à Karnak, site qui, par la multiplicité des témoignages disponibles et la possibilité de leur analyse diachronique, offre un cadre de référence fondamental. Le programme s’appuyant également sur une approche géographique globale du développement des cultes osiriens au Ier millénaire av. J.-C., le carnet veut offrir un portail d’accès raisonné à la documentation disponible (bibliographie des sites « osiriens », bases de données, collections).

Colloquium: Liturgical Papyri in Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt

Friday, May 6, 2011, 10:15am – 6pm
Location: Seminar Room, 2nd floor
Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, NYU
15 East 84th Street New York, NY
Organizer: Jacco Dieleman, UCLA/ISAW

This one-day colloquium investigates the nature and function of
Egyptian liturgical papyri of Ptolemaic and Roman date. In this
period, certain individuals were buried with one or several papyrus
scrolls containing a selection of temple liturgies. Although
originally conceived for use in the cult of Osiris, these liturgies
had been adopted and adapted for private funerary use. Whereas several
liturgies have been published individually in synoptic text editions,
the manuscripts themselves have never been studied as a group. In
fact, the most important and extensive manuscripts remain unpublished.
An important, innovative aspect of late dynastic Egyptian funerary
culture thus remains unexamined. By bringing together an international
group of scholars who are currently preparing text editions of these
manuscripts, we hope to gain insight in the principles governing the
selection and sequencing of the liturgies on the various manuscripts.
The colloquium will thus not only shine light on a large yet often
neglected text corpus, but also provide an opportunity to explore the
intersection of Egyptian temple cult and private funerary practices in
the period from the fourth century BCE to the first century CE. It
extends an invitation to reflect on the conditions and motivations
that sparked a shift in the types and number of texts deposited with
the deceased in the tomb in Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt.
