"In 1862 a victory stele of the Kushite ruler Piankhy was unearthed during excavations of Gebel Barkal, near the fourth cataract of the Nile.

Western intellectuals during the Middle Ages had access only to the Latin Asclepius, and the core teachings of this tradition were no longer understood. They became available again during the second half of the fifteenth century, when manuscripts of the Corpus Hermeticum reached Italy from Byzantium and were translated into Latin by Marsilio...

Recent studies of ancient Egyptian palatial architecture and literary references to the palace have demonstrated that these buildings functioned as a microcosm for the divinely created universe. Yet details about which specific environments within the universe the palace was meant to replicate are scarce.
