The encyclopedia of ancient Egyptian architecture by Dieter Arnold( Book )

61 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ancient Egyptians' massive stone monuments, ranging from Abu Simbel in the south of Cleopatra's palaces in Alexandria, were built over a period of three millennia, and yet a common architectural tradition links them all." "The Encyclopedia of Ancient Egyptian Architecture documents that tradition and provides a single-volume reference on one of the most remarkable architectures of the ancient world. Separate entries are provided for each of the most important sites, covering monuments such as the Step Pyramid of Djoser (the world's first significant stone building), the tombs of the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut's mortuary temple at Deir el-Bhari, and the great Ptolemaic temples that line the Upper Nile. Every aspect of building design and construction is also considered in separate entries, covering technical aspects such as building materials (from reed and mud brick to sandstone and granite) and construction techniques (including pyramid building and the erection of obelisks)." "With more than 600 entries and 300 illustrations, this encyclopedia provides a comprehensive perspective on ancient Egyptian architecture and is destined to become the standard reference on the subject for many years to come."--Jacket
Temples of ancient Egypt by Dieter Arnold( Book )

26 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five distinguished scholars here summarize the state of current knowledge about ancient Egyptian temples and the rituals associated with their use. The first volume in English to survey the major types of Egyptian temples from the Old Kingdom to the Roman period, it offers a unique perspective on ritual and its cultural significance. The authors perceive temples as loci for the creative interplay of sacred space and sacred time. They regard as unacceptable the traditional division of the temples into the categories of "mortuary" and "divine," believing that their functions and symbolic representations were, at once, too varied and too intertwined. Both informative to scholars and accessible to students, the book combines descriptions of specific temples with new insights into their development and purposes

Ancient Egypt transformed : the Middle Kingdom by Adela Oppenheim( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Middle Kingdom (ca. 2030-1700 B.C.), the second great era of ancient Egyptian culture, was a transformational period during which the artistic conventions, cultural principles, religious beliefs, and political systems formed during earlier dynasties were developed and reimagined. This comprehensive volume presents a detailed picture of the art and culture of the Middle Kingdom, arguably the least known of Egypt's three kingdoms yet a time of remarkable prosperity and unprecedented change. International specialists present new insights into how Middle Kingdom artists refined existing forms and iconography to make strikingly original architecture, statuary, tomb and temple relief decoration, and stele. Thematic sections explore art produced for different strata of Egyptian society, including the pharaoh, royal women, the elite, and the family, while other chapters provide insight into Egypt's expanding relations with foreign lands and the themes of Middle Kingdom literature. More than 250 objects from major collections around the world are sumptuously illustrated, many with new photography undertaken specifically for this catalogue

The pyramid complex of Senwosret I by Dieter Arnold( )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a result of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's renewed excavations in Lisht, the Egyptian Department published The Pyramid of Senwosret I by Dieter Arnold in 1988, followed in 1990 by The Control Notes and Team Marks by Felix Arnold. The first volume examined the main pyramid and its related mortuary installations, while this third volume, The Pyramid Complex of Senwosret I by Dieter Arnold, discusses the monuments and objects found within the outer enclosure wall of the royal pyramid, mainly the nine subsidiary pyramids and other tombs belonging to members of the royal family and their households. Although the pyramids and their surrounding installations are much destroyed and the burials pillaged, it has been possible to reconstruct, to some degree, the architecture from these ruins. Such a reconstruction is particularly important, as no other pyramid enclosures of the Middle Kingdom, and very few of the Old Kingdom, have ever been so thoroughly excavated and published. The results of this enterprise provide an important contribution to our understanding of the structure and development of the royal funerary complexes of the Middle Kingdom
The pyramid complex of Amenemhat I at Lisht : the architecture by Dieter Arnold( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lisht, twenty miles south of Cairo, has been the site of excavations since its discovery in 1906, and since that time scholars at the Metropolitan Museum have published several volumes about this Middle Kingdom site. This new book in the series focuses on the architecture of the pyramid complex of King Amenemhat I, which was built on a foundation using Old Kingdom blocks. The publication brings together new information obtained from numerous expeditions and many years of research and analysis, and includes photographs from the original finding in the early 20th century as well as new, unpublished drawings of wall reliefs and inscriptions. Documenting an area of excavation in Egypt that has suffered recent damage and continues to be threatened, this book provides indispensable insight to students and scholars of Egyptian archaeology and architecture
