Maat, Morals & Justice in Ancient Egypt by Beth Asbury : 3rd December

3rd December 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Maat, Morals & Justice in Ancient Egypt by Beth Asbury

Morals encourage cooperation between individuals, which is useful for community survival. The ancient Egyptians’ answer to this was a belief in Maat, originally an abstract concept that became a deified entity in about 2350 BC. Documentary sources show the range of behaviour that people aspired to in order to live up to Maat but as a pragmatic society, the Egyptians did not always live up to their ideals, and historical texts also shed light on how they dealt with their criminals.
This topic was the subject of Beth’s dissertation at the University of Birmingham.
