"Never Had the Like Occurred" examines Ancient Egypt's own multifaceted encounters with its past. As Egyptian culture constantly changed and evolved, this book follows a chronological arrangement, from early Egypt to the attitudes of the Coptic population in the Byzantine Period. Within this framework, it asks what access the Egyptians had to information about the past, whether deliberately or accidentally acquired; what use was made of the past; what were the Egyptians attitudes to the past; what sense of past time did the Egyptians have; and what kinds of reverence for the past did they entertain? This is the first book dedicated to the whole range of these themes. It provides an explanatory context for the numerous previous studies that have dealt with particular sets of evidence, particular periods, or particular issues. It provides a case study of how civilizations may view and utilize their past.

Verschiedentlich stosst man im Alten Testament auf den Gedanken einer Sonderstellung des Menschen, so besonders deutlich in Genesis 1 (Bild Gottes), Genesis 2-3 (sein wie Gott) und Psalm 8 (nur wenig geringer als Gott). Doch was hat es mit dem Gedanken einer Sonderstellung des Menschen eigentlich genau auf sich? Dieser Frage geht Annette Schellenberg in ihrem Buch nach. Sie konzentriert sich dabei nicht nur auf das Alte Testament, sondern berucksichtigt Texte (und Bilder) aus dem gesamten Alten Orient. Ein systematischer Uberblick zeigt, dass sich die Vorstellung einer Sonderstellung des Menschen im Alten Orient auf unterschiedliche Arten niedergeschlagen hat. Dabei fallt auf, dass diese Vorstellung an sich weitverbreitet war, aber nur sehr selten explizit ausformuliert wurde. Ein weiterer Blick auf Gegentexte zeigt, dass dieses Ungleichgewicht weniger mit Vorstellungen zum Verhaltnis Mensch-Tier zu tun hat, sondern primar mit Verengungen im Menschenbegriff und Vorstellungen zu Sonderstellungen gewisser Menschen. Annette Schellenberg, Dr. theol., Jahrgang 1971, ist Associate Professor of Old Testament am San Francisco Theological Seminary, San Anselmo, und am Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley (Kalifornien).

Die vorliegende Einführung in die Literatur des Neuen Reiches hat denselben Zweck wie ihre Vorgängerin: sie stellt die meisten literarischen Werke des Neuen Reiches inhaltlich und in Textauszügen vor und führt die wichtigste Sekundärliteratur zu diesen Werken an. Damit soll den Studierenden der Ägyptologie angesichts der B.A.- und M.A.-Studiengänge der Zugang zur Literatur erleichtert und eigenständige Beschäftigung angeregt werden; gleichzeitig haben Angehörige der Nachbardisziplinen sowie alle an altägyptischer Literatur Interessierten die Möglichkeit schneller Orientierung.
