... during the Napatan Period.
210 x 297, 364 S., zahlreiche farbige Abb.
The Napatan Period is the link between Egypt and
Meroe, in time, in space, and in culture. Stimuli from
Egypt had been adopted to express and formulate
indigenous ideas, which deve loped their own dynamics
and eventually become recog nisable as the
distinctive Meroitic culture. This thesis paves the
way for a better understand ing of the inter-societal
transfer of religious ideas and symbols, as well as
their role in Nubian state formation.
