  • Abstract

    The First International Conference for Young Egyptologists was our pro-posal to the necessity of an exchange between "young" scholars of Egyptology belonging to academic and museum institutions from all over the world, in order to let them be for the first time protagonists of an international scientific meeting. The conference has taken place in Chianciano Terme (Siena), from the 15th to the 18th October 2003, in the Parco dell'Acqua Santa of Chianciano Spa.

    The First International Conference for Young Egyptologists comes along-side this initiative by studying the relevance and function of water in ancient Egypt from magic to religion, from literature to historical evi-dence. As a result, we have singled out four main subjects, which corre-spond to the four sections of the conference: the first section, "Water and Literature", has been opened by a paper of Prof. Dr. Antonio Loprieno. The second section, "Water in ancient Egyptian History and Culture", dealt with the problems concerning the watering systems and water supply was introduced by a paper presented by Prof. Dr. Mario Liverani, as well as with the magic character of water, whose issues were introduced by a lec-ture of Prof. Dr. Yvan Koenig. The third section, "Water in ancient Egyptian Religion", has been opened by a paper presented by Dr. Susanne Bickel and, finally, Dr. Martin Bommas' paper has opened the fourth sec-tion, namely "Water in ancient Egyptian Ritual and Cult". Prof. Dr. Alessandro Roccati has then officially closed the Conference.
