Changing bodies, changing meanings studies on the human body in antiquity by Dominic Montserrat ( )
18 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Changing Bodies, Changing Meanings gathers together expertise in archaeology, classical literature, patristics and the cultural reception of antiquity to present a fully-rounded picture of the cultural status of the human body in the ancient world. The essays examine how the different ways in which the body altered could be a means of conveying ideologies and of experiencing the self. Traditions discussed include classical Greece, Augustan Rome, New Kingdom Egypt and the world of late antiquity. This book is the first to place at its centre the emotional and experiential aspect of the body in antiquity. The interdisciplinary interests of the contributors, the application of current theoretical perspectives and the utilization of many sources never before translated into a modern language, make this work a unique contribution to a growing field of inquiry

Sex and society in Græco-Roman Egypt by Dominic Montserrat ( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sexuality in the ancient world has received much scholarly attention in the last few years, but authors have tended to confine themselves to the literary sources from Greece and Rome. There has also been a concentration on issues of social dominance and control at the expense of analysing the emotional and experiential aspects of sexual life, for which Egypt is a unique source. This is the first comprehensive study of sex in ancient Egypt. It considers sex in its broadest sense, analysing not only the sexual practices of individual people but also the ways in which sexual activity was indivisibly woven into the fabric of social and communal life. The main sources are the innumerable private documents written in Egypt during the Graeco-Roman period, and almost miraculously preserved by the dry climate. All types of documents are used, from magic spells for winning over a lover to judicial accounts of sexual crimes, many of them translated here into English for the first time. From these fragments, a world has been reconstructed in which real people move and function as sexual beings. This is an innovative addition to our knowledge of the ancient world, and has much to say about the construction of sexuality in the ancient world, about notions of the self and the sexual self, and about the ways that people inhabited their bodies
The First Egyptians ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How long has civilization flourished in the Nile Valley? Were the area's first inhabitants the ancestors of the pyramid builders? Or was the pharaonic culture imported, as some scholars have claimed? This program pursues the answers in an effort to understand the identity of Egypt's original people, exploring archaeological sites that pre-date the pyramids by thousands of years."--Container
The Rebel pharaoh ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Comparable to Luther's split with Catholicism, Pharaoh Akhenaten's religious revolution caused an upheaval in Egyptian society. This program sheds light on the royal renegade's motives for abruptly switching to monotheistic sun worship and relocating 50,000 of his people to the hastily planned capital at Armana [sic]."--Container
The mystery of the animal mummies ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although vital to ancient Egyptian religion, the preservation of dead animals evidently held varying shades of meaning. This program studies ways in which the Egyptians mummified a wide range of creatures, highlighting two purposes for the practice -- one spiritually reverent, one blatantly commercial."--Container
