An exploration of later Egyptian cosmology and religious astronomy based on an examination of the hieroglyphs and artworks of the Romano-Egyptian temple of Esna. Von Lieven's thesis presents 32 texts, with a German translation and commentary, followed by a discussion of the symbolism behind some of the temple's paintings which depict the heavens above Esna. Indices present a glossary of vocabulary and gods.
