Voice, Text, Hypertext illustrates brilliantly why interest in textual studies has grown so dramatically in recent years. For the distinguished authors of these essays, a �text� is more than a document or material object. It is a cultural event, a matrix of decisions, an intricate cultural practice that may focus on religious traditions, modern �underground� literary movements, poetic invention, or the irreducible complexity of cultural politics. Drawing from classical Roman and Indian to modern European traditions, the volume makes clear that to study a text is to study a culture. It also demonstrates the essential importance of heightened textual awareness for contemporary cultural studies and critical theory�and, indeed, for any discipline that studies human culture.

This book is a vivid reconstruction of the practical aspects of ancient Egyptian religion. Through an examination of artefacts and inscriptions, the text explores a variety of issues. For example, who was allowed to enter the temples, and what rituals were performed therein? Who served as priests? How were they organized and trained, and what did they do? What was the Egyptians' attitude toward death, and what happened at funerals? How did the living and dead communicate? In what ways could people communicate with the gods? What impact did religion have on the economy and longevity of the society? This book demystifies Egyptian religion, exploring what it meant to the people and society. The text is richly illustrated with images of rituals and religious objects.

m Rahmen einer Ausstellung des Papyrus Ebers in der frisch restaurierten Universitatsbibliothek (Albertina) fand am 15. und 16. Marz 2002 ein Kolloquium zur altagyptischen und antiken Heilkunde statt. Die nach seinem Erstbesitzer, dem vornehmlich durch seine historischen Romane bekannt gewordenen Agyptologen Georg Ebers, 1873 benannte Schriftrolle von heute knapp 19 Meter Lange mit ca. 880 Einzeldiagnosen und -rezepten zahlt zu den grossten Handschriften aus dem pharaonischen Agypten, daneben zu den bedeutsamsten medizinischen weltweit. Durch die Beteiligung verschiedener Mediziner, Medizinhistoriker und Agyptologen konnte sich eine lebhafte bis kontroverse Diskussion entspinnen, die erneut das vehemente Interesse auch seitens der praktizierenden modernen Mediziner und Biologen an historischen Entwicklungen ihrer Facher dokumentierte. Mehrere Beitrage der Tagung sind in diesem Band zusammengefasst, erganzt um eine weitere Untersuchung des Herausgebers zu den drei Eingangsspruchen des Papyrus Ebers.
