Archaeological Institute of America Lecture: Seth, Evil God of Power and Might


The East Tennessee Society of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the McClung Museum present Dr. Eugene Cruz-Uribe, Indiana University East,áspeaking on "Seth, Evil God of Power and Might."

The ancient Egyptian god Seth is often seen as the god of evil in ancient Egyptian religion, as he killed his brother Osiris in order to claim the kingship of Egypt. In this lecture, Dr. Cruz-Uribe tries to rehabilitate Seth's stature, taking into account numerous new studies (including Dr. Cruz-Uribe's own) on the numerous protective roles that Seth held throughout Egyptian history. Some new and unpublished scenes of the god Seth, from the speaker's own fieldwork in Egypt, are shown.

Dr. Cruz-Uribe is an Egyptologistádealing with all periods of Egyptian history and culture with an emphasis on the Demotic stage of the ancient Egyptian language and the history and religion of the Late Period in Egypt.

Lectures are held at 7:30 p.m. in the McClung Museum Auditorium and are open to the public and free of charge. A reception will follow each.
