DetailsThe authorsTable of contents | View some pages in PDF format

Book in French. A unique publication for those interested in hieroglyphs, Hieratic script and Egyptian grammar, through the Ebers papyrus, one of the most exceptional historical documents of Egyptology. For the first time, the most comprehensive medical papyrus of Ancient Egypt is published in full and shows the hieroglyphic transcription of each plate, together with its line-by-line transliteration and translation, based on the latest lexicographical data. It reveals an astonishing pharmacopeia and medical practices combining actual scientific expertise and pharaonic Egypt's particular way of thinking, together with the use of magic when science reaches its limits.

Glossary and index
The appendices include a glossary of the main Egyptian words used in the papyrus, as well as an index of the French words. The latter mostly contains medical, anatomical and pathological terms and proper nouns.
