Abstract

German Egyptology boasts a long and varied history. Political upheavals and academic conflicts within the subject were the catalysts for a number of different developments. The lecture traces the history of the discipline in Germany, its successes and set-backs, from the mid-19th century beginnings under Karl Richard Lepsius to the outbreak of the Second World War.
