Languages, Objects, and the Transmission of Rituals. An Interdisciplinary Analysis On Some Unsearched Ritual Practices in the Graeco-Egyptian Papyri (PGM)

Languages, Objects, and the Transmission of Rituals. An Interdisciplinary Analysis On Some Unsearched Ritual Practices in the Graeco-Egyptian Papyri (PGM)

Description

The transformations in ancient mind can be recognized by means of texts, which testify to the elaboration of the cultural semantic.
Amongst these written sources, we can recognize some specific case-studies, such as the Greaco-Egyptian Papyri (PGM).
By conducting open and experimental group research, this study aims to introduce new elements and suggestions for the history of both ideas and tradition of the scientific thought, in the frame of some late rituals.
The starting point of this research is the Mediterranean Late Antiquity, an extraordinary lab for exchange, contacts and conflicts amongst traditions and knowledge: as stated by Ph. Borgeaud in his foreword, a perfect place for the study of cultures in contact.
