Interactions between Priests and Religious Landscapes in the First Millennium BC Egyptian Delta
The first millennium BCE in Egypt was a period of social and religious change brought about through the transformations in the Eastern Mediterranean as a whole and contacts with new cultures from the Levant and Aegean. The workshop aims to investigate the complex settings around the religious personnel who operated in the cities of the Western Delta in particular and understand their relationship with Memphis and other centres in Upper and Lower Egypt.
The workshop gathers a group of experts on the first millennium BCE in order to explore the relationship between the Egyptian priests and the geographical territory, religious geography and politics of the time.
