In Chapter 14 (“Egypt in the Memory of the World”) Fekri Hassan gives an analysis of the fascination that ancient Egypt has held for Europe. The essay deconstructs how Egypt has survived and has been reconstituted in the memory of the world. Hassan quotes the classical authors and the biblical tradition, where Egypt is praised for its (secret) wisdom or vilified as a land of paganism, or as the abode of Pharaoh, the quintessential enemy of the Jewish people. Egypt remains at the forefront of intense interest, starting with Islamic scholars in the medieval period, and early travelers from the seventeenth century onwards, towards modern- day commercialism.
Shubert, eds. Pp. 671– 674. London: Routledge. 2 Worship without Writing Stan Hendrickx, Dirk Huyge, and Willeke Wendrich Religious thought in Egypt was rich and various, as glimpsed from the visual and textual record on temple and tomb walls. Most of the theology and religious world image, however, is implicit and only alluded to through references to the rich mythology. In the Greco -Roman period, texts are more explicit about the meaning of these oblique citations, and scholars have been tempted to use these explications as guides to interpret very early religious expressions.
