Prague Egyptological Studies (PES) is a bi-annual double-blind peer-reviewed English journal published by the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts, Charles University, in Prague.

The journal accepts archaeological reports as well as original studies on any aspect of ancient Egyptian material culture, religion, language and history. In addition, it welcomes primary studies focusing on the wider interdisciplinary scope of Egyptology, such as environmental archaeology, archaeozoology and archaeobotany, as well as new research in applied sciences. The journal also includes book reviews on recently published monographs in the above-mentioned fields.

Objets et lieux sacrés : réalités et imaginaires

Sous la direction de François Ripoll

Ce numéro s’intéresse à la construction symbolique et imaginaire des espaces et des objets sacrés dans l’Antiquité classique, avec une ouverture sur la réception moderne de cette dernière. À travers une série de contributions touchant tant à la littérature qu’à l’archéologie ou à l’histoire de l’art, il illustre la façon dont des espaces ou des objets réels ou semi-fictifs pourvus d’une dimension religieuse sont reconfigurés ou resémantisés en fonction de schémas de pensée ou de systèmes de valeurs en accord avec le contexte historique et intellectuel contemporain. De Delphes à Rome en passant par Ibiza, on verra comment se définit un espace sacré, comment se structure un ensemble de lieux sacrés fonctionnant en réseau de signes, comment un regard décentré sur un sanctuaire peut en altérer la valeur symbolique, comment des objets liés à des cultes deviennent des marqueurs identitaires et culturels au-delà de leur fonction première. Loin d’être une garantie transcendante d’intangibilité et de fixité signifiante, la dimension sacrée a priori d’un lieu ou d’un objet ouvre largement l’éventail de ses manipulations potentielles.

Frontiers of the Roman Empire: Hadrian's Wall: Der Hadrianswall / Le Mur d’Hadrien

 book cover

 Frontiers of the Roman Empire

 The frontiers of the Roman Empire together form the largest monument of one of the world’s greatest ancient states. They stretch for some 7,500 km through 20 countries which encircle the Mediterranean Sea. The remains of these frontiers have been studied by visitors and later by archaeologists for several centuries. Many of the inscriptions and sculptures, weapons, pottery and artefacts created and used by the soldiers and civilians who lived on the frontier can be seen in museums. Equally evocative of the lost might of Rome are the physical remains of the frontiers themselves. The aim of this series of books is not only to inform the interested visitor about the history of the frontiers but to act as a guidebook as well. Emperor Hadrian ordered the construction of the great Wall which still bears his name ‘to separate the barbarians from the Romans’ (Historia Augusta, Life of Hadrian, 11). The complex of military installations, 117 km long, but with an extension without the linear barrier for about 40 km down the west coast, contained 74 km of stone wall, 43 km of turf rampart, 200 towers, 100 fortlets, 20 forts, took years to construct and was probably still being modified when Hadrian died in July 138. This highly illustrated book offers an accessible summary of Hadrian’s Wall, and an overview of the wider context of the Roman frontiers.
