Abstract:The economic structure and administration of Egypt's Old Kingdom remain unevenly understood, partly as a result of assumptions formed based on the reliance on material from later periods of Egyptian history, as well as through the improper application of contemporaneous evidence to the particular setting of the first Dynasties of Egypt. Temples did not assume an economic role until the later stages of the Old Kingdom. The system of “Temple Economy”, best characterized by the organizational paradigm of the New Kingdom, may have originated at the end of the Sixth Dynasty. The development that culminated in the eventual grouping of economic responsibilities at temples was achieved following certain discernible administrative initiatives during the Fifth Dynasty. Until that time, the Egyptian economy exhibited features of a management system based at the palace of the reigning Pharaoh, who controlled the various components of that order, namely the economic domains (some of which were connected with the celebration of the royal cult) and the processing and storage complexes. The transference of the economic agency of Egypt from the palace to the temple represented a policy aimed at managing holdings and resources more efficiently, and did not in any way result in the independence of the temple from the state.
