The Quotable Egyptian Revival
"Egyptomania" refers to post-pharaonic fascination with ancient Egypt and its myriad manifestations. This includes obvious visual expressions of Egyptian themes, for example in operas and architecture, as well as the employment of Egyptian motifs by philosophers, occultists, and groups with political or social aims. Egyptomania began with the Greeks and Romans and persists today among modern civilizations. Its various Egyptianizing forms are referred to as the Egyptian Revival, the Neo-Egyptian, Egyptianate, Egyptiana, and Pharaonism.
What is Egyptomania.org?
Egyptomania.org is a web site founded to promote the examination and appreciation of the varied aspects of Egyptomania. Such examination may be scholarly or popular in approach, but it must be responsible. This currently includes extensive bibliographies, calendar of events, and links to web sites and news items. In the future, it is hoped that Egyptomania.org will host a virtual museum; a virtual library of fiction, poetry, and articles; a guide to Egyptian Revival monuments that can be visited by the public; and other resources.
Aspects of Egyptomania covered by Egyptomania.org include but are not confined to:
Annotated Bibliography for Egyptomania, the Egyptian Revival, Egyptianizing Works, Egyptiana, and Related Matters (incomplete and in progress)
Ancient Egypt in Fiction (the move from its former site is complete, but reformatting remains a work in progress)
