This volume catalogues and illustrates each of the Egyptian amulets in the `Bible + Orient' collection of the University of Freiburg in Switzerland. Almost 950 amulets are published here, made from metals, bone and ivory, stone or faience, all of which depict gods or animals. A wide range of Egyptian animals are represented including birds, lions, crocodiles, scorpions, fish and antelope. Christian Herrmann discusses the iconography of each in turn before the catalogue itself. The discussion also compares Egyptian with Near Eastern amulets and reflects on the significance of this important collection for our understanding of amulets and their role in Egyptian religion. German text.
