This is a highly detailed illustrated catalogue of the
Egyptian amulets in the ‘Bible + Orient’ collection of the University of
Freiburg in Switzerland. Almost 950 amulets are published here, made from
various metals, bone and ivory, stone and 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.
