ABOUT THIS BOOK

Completely revised and updated


James P. Allen provides a translation of the oldest corpus of ancient Egyptian religious texts from the six royal pyramids of the Fifth and Sixth Dynasties (ca. 2350–2150 BCE). Allen’s revisions take into account recent advances in the understanding of Egyptian grammar.


Features:



  • Sequential translations based on all available sources, including texts newly discovered in the last decade

  • Texts numbered according to the most widely used numbering system with new numbers from the latest 2013 concordance

  • Translations reflect the primarily atemporal verbal system of Old Egyptian, which conveys the timeless quality that the text’s authors understood the texts to have
