Practical Apotheosis: Becoming God and (De)constructing the Afterlife in Egypt's New Kingdom

The royal tombs of Egypt's New Kingdom provide incredibly detailed accounts of the forms, inhabitants, and functions of the divine world, as the locus for the king's rebirth after death. The tombs' architecture and decoration functioned in concert as magical tools for the transformation of the king's spirit into a solar deity, equipped for eternity. This lecture will explore some of the cosmological models that New Kingdom rulers employed, in order to gain access to this divine state.
