Subject: [PAPY] Aegyptus et Pannonia Symposium III Comments: cc: firstname.lastname@example.org To: PAPY@LISTSERV.HUM.KU.DK I have been asked to circulate details of the following conference to members of our list. Dorothy Thompson Aegyptus et Pannonia Symposium III. First call for Papers The Ancient Egyptian Comittee of the Hungarian-Egyptian Friendship Society (MEBT ÓEB) and The Budapest History Museum Aquincum Museum are pleased to announce an international Symposium on Diversity and Similarity in Egyptian Religions The symposium is dedicated to Professor László Kákosy, died last year, the 29th January, whose area of interest was wide - from Ancient Egyptian magic, mythology and ritual to Egyptian philology, literature, history, archeology and fieldwork. One of his main research fields was the late Egyptian religion, including Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt, which is intended to be the main topic of this event. It is a conference series exploring the interconnections between research on the religions of the ancient Mediterranean world, with special attention to the Roman province Pannonia, and the study of ancient Egyptian religion. In the past decade, scholars have come to recognize that the ancient Mediterranean world was a culturally diverse environment and that the ancient Egyptian cult practices were themselves sensitive to the constant influences of the larger, multi-ethnic world not only upon their own land, but also in the deverse other countries, ie. ancient Egyptian cult practices had in spite of many similarities also many different elements in various parts of the ancient world, as well as in the homeland. For the better knowledge of these process we would like to focus now on diversity and similariy in late Egyptian religion without geographical restrition. The symposium is open to all scholars and will take place at the Buda Castle in Budapest (H-1014, Budapest, Szentgyörgy tér 2) from 17-19th November, 2004. Participation in the Colloquium is free, speakers will be responsible for making and paying for their own travel. Conference languages will be English, German, French and Hungarian.

Archaeology and history of ancient temple architecture should have an important role, but we encourage submissions from a wide range of perspectives, including art history, cultural, political, and social history, philology, literary criticism, religious studies, and paleography or papyrology during the late Egyptian history.
