Description

The first founder of a historically verified monotheist religion, Amenhotep IV, who changed his name to Akhenaten, occupies an exceptional position in the collective imagination. Dimitri Laboury here provides an archaeological biography of the royal worshipper of Aten, which above all else aims to describe the material facts witnessed during his reign, in an attempt to distinguish what can be deduced from their interpretation. He invites us to:  • delve into Egypt at the peak of its glory, when the young prince is growing up• follow the step by step political-religious reform which he is to implement once crowned Pharaoh• discover what is really known about his queen, the beautiful and mysterious Nefertiti• explore the Horizon of Aten, the city which the sovereign had constructed in Middle Egypt in honour of his new god of choice• analyse the way in which this atypical king was written out of Egyptian history by the Ancient Egyptians themselves, before being revived by contemporary memory.
