Chapter Summary

The front matter section of the book titled The Great Dedicatory Inscription of Ramesses II: A Solar-Osirian Tractate at Abydos contains the Table of Contents, the Preface and the Acknowledgements. The initial aim of the author was to present a fully documented and historically based new edition of Ramesses IIs famous Dedicatory Inscription at Abydos. After a John Darnells work on the Solar-Osirian unity, the author could see how significant was this theme, or aspect, of Ramesside religious behavior, and how neglected it had hitherto been among many Egyptologists.

Keywords: Ramesses II; Solar-Osirian tractate
