Synopsis

Akhenaten, also known as Amenhotep IV, was king of Egypt from 1375 to 1358 BC. The cult he founded broke with traditional polytheism, focusing its worship on a single deity - the sun god Aten. This work offers a concise account of Akhenaten and his religion of light. Hornung begins with a discussion of the 19th-century scholars who laid the foundation for our knowledge of Akhenaten's period and extends to the most recent archaeological finds. He emphasizes that Akhenaten's monotheistic theology represented the first attempt in history to explain the entire natural and human world on the basis of a single principle. Hornung also addresses such topics as the origins of the new religion; profound chages in beliefs regarding the afterlife; and the new Egyptian capital at Akhetaten which was devoted to the service of Aten, his prophet Akhenaten, and the latter's family.

Der Verlag über das Buch

Book Description:
Akhenaten, also known as Amenhotep IV, was king of Egypt during the Eighteenth Dynasty and reigned from 1375 to 1358 b.c. Called the “religious revolutionary,” he is the earliest known creator of a new religion. The cult he founded broke with Egypt’s traditional polytheism and focused its worship on a single deity, the sun god Aten. Erik Hornung, one of the world’s preeminent Egyptologists, here offers a concise and accessible account of Akhenaten and his religion of light.

Hornung begins with a discussion of the nineteenth-century scholars who laid the foundation for our knowledge of Akhenaten’s period and extends to the most recent archaeological finds. He emphasizes that Akhenaten’s monotheistic theology represented the first attempt in history to explain the entire natural and human world on the basis of a single principle. “Akhenaten made light the absolute reference point,” Hornung writes, “and it is astonishing how clearly and consistently he pursued this concept.” Hornung also addresses such topics as the origins of the new religion; pro-found changes in beliefs regarding the afterlife; and the new Egyptian capital at Akhetaten which was devoted to the service of Aten, his prophet Akhenaten, and the latter’s family.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Amenhotep IV (later known as Akhenaten) reigned during the Eighteenth Dynasty. He defied tradition and centered worship upon one deity, the sun god Aten. In this book, the author provides a concise, accurate and very readable account of his reign. A summary is also provided of the nineteenth-century scholars (Lepsius and Champollion to name a few) who discovered and first interpreted the ruins of Akhenaten. The author gives a religious background of Akhenaten and his father's beliefs; he also discusses the founding of the city of Akhenaten, the belief in monotheism and the processes by which Tutankhaten becomes Tutankhamen the successor. The book offers an excellent bibliography for further consultation of the subject. It is one of the best books on the subject of this heretic pharaoh. Recommended reading for all.

Hornung once again demonstrates his ability to pull together nuances of abstruse facets of Egyptian theology. I only wish this book was about twice as long with more extensive footnotes. Nevertheless, I couldn't put it down until it was finished and it provided me with new ways of looking at Akhenaten's extraordinary reign and its place, not only in Egyptian history, but in world History

Von rene@centroweb.net - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Any work by Hornung is always very good. Akhenaten's religion has always been problematic for historians, just as it was for the ancient Egyptians. There is also the modern problem of being biased in favor of monotheism. I found the book profound in the issues it discusses, clarifying and ultimately unconvincing.

This is a pretty specialized topic, but if it is one you are interested in, this is the book to buy. Very informative, reads easily, and doesn't shy away from the specifics the way a lot of books do.
