Abstract of: Spells 224 and 225 from the Pyramid Texts: An inquiry into their editorial history (2017)

Earlier this year (2017), I published an article in which PT 224 and PT 225 from the Pyramid Texts were examined: “Spells 224 and 225 from the Pyramid Texts: Translation and Commentary” (also available on this website).

These spells exhibit several clues about their editorial history; the present acticle explores these clues. It is found that the common origin of these spells can be traced back to the merging of two different pre-PT texts.

These are – tentatively – reconstructed.
