Experience Nubia's curator insight, January 25, 2014 2:55 AM

Ancient Egypt and Nubia have a complex and interweaving history, at various times dominating and influencing each other. (Egypt’s 25th dynasty was a Nubian one.) During all this co-mingling, some Egyptian Deities came to Nubia, Isis among them. Probably established in Nubia around 1950 BCE (when Egypt was dominant and Nubian royalty adopted much Egyptian custom), Isis has long been a Nubian Goddess. Isis was known throughout Nubia as The Great Lady of Nubia.

Chantres coptes du Caire, à l'Institut du Monde arabe, le 28 et 29 mars 2014

Chantres coptes du Caire, à l'Institut du Monde arabe, le 28 et 29 mars 2014 | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it

Un spectacle coproduit par l’Institut du monde arabe et la Maison des cultures du monde dans le cadre du 18e Festival de l’Imaginaire

Parler de « Coptes d’Égypte », c’est déjà risquer un pléonasme : les deux mots sont issus du grec Aigyptos par lequel les Anciens désignaient le pays. Avec ces chants, l’Institut Didymos et l’Institut copte du Caire nous offrent un « aperçu » de l’authentique tradition musicale d’une des principales Églises d’Orient, telle qu’on la pratique aujourd’hui, loin des mystères pharaoniques dont elle fut souvent entourée.
Le chant occupe une place essentielle dans la liturgie copte orthodoxe et se décline en plusieurs genres : les hymnes, aux formes textuelles et mélodiques simples, les cantillations des grands textes et les incantations du prêtre, les madih et les tassabih (louanges aux saints). Tous ces chants sont en arabe ou en copte. Les uns, syllabiques, sont rigoureusement scandés, le chantre pouvant rester de longues minutes sur une seule et même voyelle ; les autres sont librement ornementés. Interprétées souvent a cappella, les vocalises sont parfois accompagnées de percussions, principalement cymbales et triangle, entre les mains des diacres et du chantre.
L’Institut Didymos du Caire a été fondé en 1893, par le pape copte Cyrille V, afin d’assurer une fidèle transmission. Les futurs chantres y sont formés au chant, aux disciplines théologiques et à la langue copte. Près d’un siècle plus tard, un second s’ouvrait dans un monastère des environs d’Assiout. Créé en 1954, l’Institut d’Études Coptes marque le désir des chrétiens d’Égypte de faire valoir la spécificité de leur patrimoine.

Des ONG accusent les services de sécurité de restriction des libertés sous prétexte de "guerre contre le terrorisme"

Des ONG accusent les services de sécurité de restriction des libertés sous prétexte de "guerre contre le terrorisme" | Aladin-Fazel | Scoop.it

The proliferation of terrorist operations reflects the authorities’ inability to take their anti-terrorism practices further than media statements and random security confrontations, a group of non-governmental organisations said.
In a joint statement released on Saturday, a group of 13 civil society organisations condemned the terrorist bombings and violent incidents which took place late last week. Four explosions were reported in Greater Cairo on Friday, leaving at least six killed. On Saturday, two more blasts were reported in Cairo and Suez, leaving none killed.
Interim President Adly Mansour condemned the attacks in a national address on Sunday afternoon. He said the state “will not hesitate to take exceptional measures if needs be” to fight the wave of terrorism.

If Egyptians had better health than we have now, it really makes me question if such practices that include expensive technology and machinery is better? I did not know that ancient egyptians were this knowledgable and were great doctors. The article says that if someone received their training in Egypt, that they were considered highly praised. The article explores the different paths the ancients looked into such as dream interpretations and psychology. I never would have though how intricate their field of medicine was in that time period!

ARCE-NOLA's curator insight, January 14, 2014 2:50 PM
"This past weekend ARCE assisted in the opening of two sites in Egypt, Deir el-Shelwit on the west bank in Luxor and Mut Temple on the east bank inside Karnak Temple.

The Roman period temple at Deir el Shelwit was built between the 1st and 2nd centuries CE in honor of the goddess, Isis. Many emperors, over a period of approximately 100 years added to the temple, and it is one of the last in Egypt to have had a government building campaign. The propylon, or gateway, in front of the temple is the original entrance into the complex. It is elaborately decorated with scenes of the king making offerings to various gods.

While Mut Temple has been a focus of extensive archaeological excavation by both the Brooklyn Museum and Johns Hopkins University, it has never been open to tourists. ARCE’s work focused on clearing the site of weeds, cleaning the sacred lake, building platforms to display statuary, creating pathways and laying new stone flooring in the temple precinct, as well as installing solar panel lighting and signage.

Both projects have been funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)."

"Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim, Minister of Antiquities, announced that the Egyptian Spanish mission headed by Dr. Myriam Seco Alvarez working in the funerary temple of Thutmosis III on West Bank, Luxor has discovered a black granite head representing a King of the New Kingdom. The discovered head measures 29.6 cm height,

24.3 cm width and 26.9 cm depth. The Minister said that the first look on the details of discovered statue head shows that it is likely belongs to a statue of a king followed the reign of Thutmosis III but to determine for sure, it would require more study. Mohamed Abd Al Maqsoud, head of the Egyptian Antiquities department said the head was discovered in the trench at the northern side of the second courtyard of the funerary temple.  He added "the head shows with a wig, round face and 8 cm long ears. Nose and chin are broken but part of the neck is still there."
