In The Plagues of Egypt, molecular biologist Siro Trevisanato assembles data gleaned from a variety of ancient texts and a wide range of scientific disciplines to assist in a reconsideration of the ten plagues recorded in the Biblical book of Exodus. Trevisanato’s reconstruction presents a view of these events that argues for their historical reality, identifying the series of disasters which befell Egypt as a chain reaction traceable to a single cataclysmic event, which for the first time can be dated with certainty.

Calling Out to Isis

The Enduring Nubian Presence at Philae
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0715-1
The expansion of the cult of the goddess Isis throughout the Mediterranean world demonstrates the widespread appeal of Egyptian religion in the Greco-Roman period. In this monograph, Ashby focuses on an oft-neglected population in studies of this phenomenon: Nubian worshipers. Through examination of prayer inscriptions and legal agreements engraved on temple walls, as well as Ptolemaic royal decrees and temple imagery, Ashby sheds new light on the involvement of Nubians in the Egyptian temples of Lower Nubia, and further draws comparisons between Nubian cultic practices and the Meroitic royal funerary cult.
