THE TEMPLE OF RAMESSES II IN ABYDOS: VOLUME 1, WALL SCENES AND VOLUME 2, PILLARS, MISCELLANY AND INSCRIPTIONS. Sameh Iskander and Ogden Goelet. Lockwood Press, 2017. Three volumes. ISBN 9781937040383 In English.
Due date: February 2017. This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Of all the enormous monuments throughout Egypt and Nubia that Ramesses II (the Great; ca. 1279-1212 BCE) left behind, his temple at Abydos, built early in his reign, stands as one of his most elegant monuments, with its simple architectural layout and dramatic and graceful painted relief scenes. Though best known for its dramatic reliefs depicting the battle of Kadesh, the temple also offers a wealth of information about religious and social life in ancient Egypt. It reflects, for example, the strenuous efforts of the early Ramessides to reestablish the Osiris cult in Egypt-and particularly at Abydos-in the aftermath of the Amarna period. Over a seven-year period, the authors of The Temple of Ramesses II in Abydos conducted a field project with the aim of producing an up-to-date and comprehensive architectural, photographic, and epigraphic record of the temple.
