When a Book of the Dead Text does not match Archaeology. The case of the protective Magical Bricks (BD 151)



ID: <10670/1.gx2rn5>


International audience The rite of magical bricks is intended to protect the mummy and the tomb. It offers the possibility to compare textual instructions (manuscripts of the Book of the Dead) and archaeological application of a funerary practice. The presentation of this funerary rite shows how and why the practical application of the ritual in tombs can differ from the tradition noted by manuscripts.
