Abstract:The ancient Egyptian fascination with the deities and events during the twelve hours of the night dwindled only with the demise of Egyptian religion itself. A corpus of large stone sarcophagi produced during the Thirtieth Dynasty, decorated with excerpts from the Underworld Books, known primarily from New Kingdom royal tombs, offer a unique opportunity to explore the conceptions of the Netherworld during the Late Period in Egypt. The present work represents the first examination of the decoration of these monuments, as well as the only detailed treatment of Late Period copies of the Underworld Books. Not only do the sarcophagi texts preserve entirely new passages and variants of each of the major netherworldly compositions—the Books of Amduat, Gates, Caverns, Book of the Night, Creation of the Solar Disk, and the Litany of Re—they also combine these texts in unique and exciting ways to create entirely new Underworld Books. Four different Late Period sarcophagus types are identified for the first time, each of which use a carefully selected array of Underworld Books arranged in such a way as to form a unified representation of the nightly solar journey. The sarcophagi bear witness to a meticulous editing process, which often included new text composed to incorporate the deceased into the solar cycle. Connections between the Underworld Books and the wealth of Late Period funerary papyri, never before examined, provide further evidence for the renaissance in the study of netherworldly compositions during the Late Period.
