Egyptologists Study the Temple Culture in Ptolemaic Egypt

Researchers have currently explored the Temple culture in the Ptolemaic Egypt. As per the study, the Egyptologists found that innovations were introduced into the contemporary temple culture that was rooted in ancient traditions. The researchers stated that the culture of the Egyptian temple was thought to be declining in the Ptolemaic era, after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC.

The study was led by a Ph.D. student Carina van den Hoven. During the research, the Egyptologist studied the ritual scenes that were depicted on the walls of the temples and deciphering the texts written in hieroglyphics.

The researchers discovered that the innovations reflected the much broader context of innovations that had been taking place in Egypt over a longer period.

The researchers also shed the light on the part of history and stated that the region underwent a period of turbulence after a sudden death of Alexander the great.

Additionally, the Macedonian empire was long-drawn-out over 4,000 kilometers, from the Ionian Sea to the Himalayas.

Because of an incapable successor, Alexander's former generals were appointed as governors of different parts of the empire. However, all too soon they were waging bloody wars to annex parts of one another's region, stated the Egyptologist.
