Ancient Egypt -An in class essay exam

Be prepared to answer following questions in the form of an essay. Your answer should make extensive use of primary sources (original documents, translated from ancient Egyptian or Greek), but should also put those documents into the appropriate historical and cultural context.

In your exam, you may bring two pages (one page front and back, or two pages single-sided) of notes of direct, verbatim quotes (not summaries or bullet-point lists) from primary sources that we have read in class, plus, for each source, a sentence with basic identifying information. Do not include quotations from secondary literature, meaning anything that was written originally by a person in modern times. This includes general discussions on Egyptian religion from the textbook, including modern summaries of ancient texts. It also includes the introductory matter that often appears before translations of ancient texts in anthologies. Also do not include any prewritten outlines, or introductory or concluding paragraphs. The note sheet should be turned in to me along with your exam booklet. Any note sheets not following these rules will result in a reduction of your exam grade. 1. Describe the roles of Isis in Egyptian mythology and religion, and explain her cultural importance throughout Egyptian history.
