Middle Egyptian Hieratic
The Summer School “Reading Middle Egyptian Hieratic” is an academic program offered by the University of Pisa, aimed at training its participants to read and interpretate literary and documentary texts of Ancient Egypt (Middle Egyptian, 2000-1500 BC) in their original script (hieratic and hieroglyphs).
The objective of the school is to provide strong ability in reading and interpreting ancient Egyptian documents in hieratic and hieroglyphs, beyond basic knowledge. This will be achieved through three different levels:1) Decoding hieratic script (basic);2) Intensive practice of reading (hieratic sources) supervised by teachers;3) Focus on grammar issues related to the Middle Kingdom texts.By investigating different types of documents, participants will acquire self confidence in approaching autonomously ancient Egyptian writings in Middle Egyptian, especially those written in hieratic.
Who can apply
The course is open to EU (including University of Pisa students) and non-EU applicants.
Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of Middle Egyptian (language and script). No previous knowledge of hieratic is required.
